Top 10 Monday

Today's list is the top 10 most embarrassing things I've done fashionably (or not so fashionably) throughout my life.

10. My freshman year in college I let my hair stylist do this to my hair...



Of course I didn't pull it off as well as Jennifer Aniston and I think at some point I even had bangs with this style. I liked it then but I think anyone could look at pictures of me with that style and say,"Yep, definitely taken in the 90's."

9. Big bangs...80's. I had a rather pathetic attempt at big bangs.

8. Banana clips...my mom did that to me in elementary school.



7. Shirts with ribbons and rhinestones sewn on...sexy.

6. Vests. In middle school I had several. I looked equally dorky in all of them.

5. High waisted pants. Nobody looks good in these.

4. Rolling of the jeans. That was the trend but I was never able to do it right.

3. Pajama bottoms out in public. Tacky.

2. Layered socks.

1. Big red glasses.



Before my big red glasses I had big purple glasses. I thought I was cool.

What are your embarrassing fashion trends?

LOVE IT! Since we're about the same age I had many of the same- vests, banana clips, big bangs. Do you remember those little circles that you would gather one side of your shirt in? Embarassing. I also wore overalls with one side undone. And I had turquoise acid wash jeans-I thought they were sooooo cool in about 1988.

I am guilty of wearing stirrup pants when I was in elementary school, and loving every minute of it.

One more thing- re: layered socks. I used to wear, for example, a blue shirt, white shorts, blue socks, white socks and blue shoes. I thought people would be impressed with my ability to stack colors in my clothing. So lame.

I remember your big red glasses too! So funny! I think I did about all of that myself!

I totally remember those little plastic circle things. I had forgotten about those but you're right....they're completely embarrassing.

Check. Check. Check.

I think I've done all of those except the glasses... and I'm sure I would have if I'd needed them.

Just today I was reliving with a friend the wearing of OVERALLS in middle school... with only one strap buttoned, of course. WHAT WERE WE THINKING??

I was in college before I realized that you could actually wear a pair of jeans without rolling or cuffing the bottoms. At least you didnt have the same glasses as the first President Bush.
