The gorgeous Nicole of Moments That Define Life has a fun new weekly linkup – Listable Life. I’m a list freak, so duh, of course I’m going to play!
Especially since one of this week’s prompts concerns fashion.
The prompt? 5 fashion trends you wish you had not taken part in.
I so wish I had pictures to go with this prompt.
Oh wait, I MAY have a gem or two lying around.
Just promise you won’t think less of me, laugh behind my back and wish you hadn’t met me.
Okay, you can laugh. I’ll wait.
The things I do for this blog.
Disclaimer: The outfits featured here may or may not have been trends. I did not read fashion magazines then. That much will be obvious.
Never, ever, agree to wearing an all-matching track suit in red. With a red tee-shirt inside. Even at 9 years of age. I apologize for causing your head to explode.
Never, ever wear tee-shirts that have the words ‘Beach Bum’ on it. Complete with graphic. Oh, and oversized? So 1991. I also apologize for the bad hair. I was 15. Talk about awkward.
Never, ever wear ugly shoes with a hot dress. I wrote a whole post about this outfit so let’s not rehash the horror. But those shoes, oh my.
Never, ever wear brown on brown. The velvet brown jacket, the oversized brown sweater – I look like I rolled in mud. And I remember actually being really pleased with my bargain find (the jacket cost only 10 British pounds!) and liking that sweater. But, I was only 20. What did I know? (clearly, nothing)
Never, ever wear tie-dyed shirts. Just.Don’t. (And my sister was even younger then, so don’t judge her poor choice of clothes. She’s a fashionista these days). I do like my Doc Martens though.
I promise you, no more track suits, oversized tees or sweaters, velvet jackets or tie dyed shirts.
