I've had my share of fashion mishaps. You know, they seem like a good idea at the time but when you look back you think, "WHAT WAS I THINKING?" Here are a few of my fashion fumbles:
The Puffy Bangs. You all know what I'm talking about. I wore the puffy bangs pretty much through kindergarten and elementary school. The process started by curling your bangs with a curling iron. Then, you took a comb and ratted your bangs as high as you could get them. Last, a half a can of hairspray was used to make sure they withstood recess.
The dressing like a boy is cool look. This is when the puffy bangs were flattened. I was in 6th and 7th grade when this was considered socially acceptable; well with my friends at least. I wore over sized shirts, my hair in a ponytail and I shopped in the boy section for jeans and shoes. Like that stage isn't awkward enough.
The scrunchy on the wrist. Need I say more? Even though I was already wearing one in my hair, I felt the need to have a backup. Oh, and it HAD to match what I was wearing. This was 8th grade.
White eyeliner. Gross. I look back at pictures of me wearing this stuff and I really wonder how I ever thought that looked good. I remember it being hard to apply because every brand I tried was chalky. Go figure. This stage lasted through 9th grade.
The wear my jean skirt to church every Sunday phase. That's not that bad you say? Well, what if I told you that I wore those granny skin colored stockings with my Dr. Martens while wearing that skirt!?! Yes, that's right folks. I would say that's bad taste in it's finest. I should have listened to my Mom. This was during my high school days.
I'm sure there are more. These are just the few that stand out in my mind. So what about you? What fashion fumbles have you vowed never to repeat?
