My Favorite Fashion Mistakes
I hate to brag, but I was voted best dressed in 8th grade. This was a year that I proudly rocked white jeans with pink cut-outs at the knees, a matching white denim vest and a button down, checkered pastel blouse. Thought I was smokin…
Things did not vastly improve over the next few years. I aimed to be on trend so many times. And while I’ve always loved fashion, it hasn’t always loved me back.
These are some of my best fashion faux pas throughout the years.
My fashion icon as a teen was Molly Ringwald. I thought I could rock a hat just like Andi in Pretty in Pink, and wore it to all of my junior high dances. I was so very, very wrong.
I come from a family of golfers, but have never played the sport myself. Not sure why I thought it was acceptable, let alone adorable, to wear corduroy burgundy knickers with a pink jeff cap (newsboy hat). All the time.
You can’t touch this. And trust me, no one did want to touch this M.C. Hammer wannabe in 1987 with her black silk parachute pants AND matching bolero jacket. Not flattering on anyone let alone a gal with big hips and thighs. Why didn’t someone stop me?
Baby doll tees. Even at my thinnest, this was a mistake. Anyone with a C cup or more should not wear a baby doll tee. Ever.
Hiking boots with everything from sundresses to denim shorts and flannel shirts. My uniform for college. I can’t really hate on this one. If I could wear these outfits again today, I would. 90210 forever.
**Honorable mention goes to all of my hair styles from the ages of 8 to 18, specifically the grade school curly perm, the junior high "sun-in" 'do and the high school super teased and sprayed style.
