What Not To Wear
In the past, I have made some not so smart fashion decisions. I’d like to share the things I’ve learned with you, so that you can NOT make the mistakes I’ve made. I definitely hung my head in shame and laughed at myself as I looked back at these awful pictures. You live and learn. I wonder what I’m doing now that will mortify me in the future.
What was I thinking?!! Oh, sweet, gullible 9th grader. Why did no one set you straight and give you some advice? This fashion no-no should be left to European tourists.
This dress I wore to my freshman Homecoming dance was sooooo bad (although my mother still strongly disagrees) that the boy I danced with that night, still remembered it in detail our senior year…and not in a good way. Yikes.
I’m seriously considering pressing charges against my mother for letting me out of the house like this. Yuck. Sweats should only be for lounging around the house and working out. And construction boots are for construction workers and you don’t see me building any houses, so I have no idea why I owned them. Epic fail.
There is a fine line between fashionable and ultra-slutty when it comes to wearing a mini dress. More often than not, I think people’s mini dresses veer towards the latter. Fortunately this dress was a costume I wore in a show and nothing I CHOSE to wear, so you can’t blame me for this one or call me any names.
Let’s just leave these shirts to retired men over the age of 65. I guess it totally figures that I borrowed this shirt from my dad.
I don’t care if this trend is coming back in style, I will never agree with it. I think it is inappropriate to show off your belly, even if you are five years old or have a rockin’ killer model body. Bleh. Oh, and did you notice that I was sporting mom jeans? Double gross.
Turtlenecks are…okay, but then to go and pair them with overalls?! In fact, if you still own any overalls and you’re not a farmer, go ahead and burn them. Looking back at my photo album from high school, in about 85% of the pictures, I was wearing overalls. Boy, was I clueless.
I am the biggest advocate for color, but too much of a good thing is…too much. Also, someone should have warned me about mixing my patterns. Ha!
And don’t forget, no one looks good with a sunburn, so always remember to wear sunscreen.
Here’s what I wore this week:
