If you were a tween in the late 1990′s, be warned that these pictures are about to bring on a wave of nostalgia! Flickr user mmaquino uploaded scans of the Summer 1999 Delia’s catalog, all 75 pages of it. Prepare to flash back to the times when Birkenstocks and cargo pants were the ultimate in cool and you were begging your parents for tickets to the Oops!… I Did It Again tour.
Here are just a few pages out of the Delia’s catalog to get you back in the ’90′s frame of mind (you can check out the whole issue here). And in case looking at these ads gave you the itch to shop, I have good news for you — Delia’s is still in business after all these years, and they honestly haven’t changed too much.

I’m pretty sure I had that elephant print tank on my birthday list
It’s not the 1990′s without multiple pairs of foam platform flip flops
Were any of you guys lucky enough to have inflatable furniture? That’s one trend I unfortunately missed out on
I also put together a gallery of other catalog covers from that time period, including Muffy VanderBear and American Girl Doll magazines. I have to give a shoutout to Alloy and Limited Too as well — although, I couldn’t find scans for those catalogs, they definitely helped define my consumer-driven tween-hood!
What catalogs did you Lovelies used to receive in the mail? And do you see anything in the Delia’s catalog that you would still be interested in buying today?
