Why not?

"A crowded neck is a happy neck" - The Man Repeller. So why not pile on as many as you can? 

I've decided that each month I'm going to to a post about the most recent Teen Vogue issue, as a form of inspiration slash information about the fashion world. I just love the way that they present the magazine in such a fun but informative way at the same time! Stay posted...

The Devil is in the Details

Sometimes you just have one of those days, maybe you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, maybe you put your shirt on inside out, who knows. Can you guess which type of day I had? When I saw that I could read my shirt correctly in the mirror, I noticed something was up. That's when I realized how important the little details of life are! My favorite part of creating an outfit is choosing the accessories and styling the look because I really believe they can make or break an outfit. From now on I want to spend more time focusing on the smaller aspects of my outfit because I think they make all the difference. And if I do, maybe it will help keep me from looking like I got dressed in the dark. Which actually is what happened.

Why Did We Wear That? Worst Fashion Crimes of the 2000s.

In honor of all the stylish trends we have now, let's take a look back at all of the fashion mishaps and mistakes of the 2000s:

Also known as the precursor to the snuggie, I give you the poncho.
Oh hey I have a blanket that looks just like that, except mine doesn't have a hole in the middle...

Why was it is considered cool to confuse people about if you were wearing a 
skirt or tell me!

The Popcorn Shirt.
Remember these? Hopefully not. In stores they appeared to be made for dolls, or maybe a three year old, but voila!
When on, it fit like a normal shirt--magic!

One word. Crocs. 

Platform Flip Flops.
Some women thought that platform flip flops would make them appear taller, thinner--irresistible--when it reality
we all wondered why they had strapped styrofoam blocks to their feet.

Now in case you're wondering, I've never committed any of these fashion crimes.
I definitely didn't own gauchos in brown, black, and gray, a red knit poncho, a blue tie-dye popcorn shirt, and pink furry Crocs.
No. Definitely not. *cough cough*


ps. This throwback song has great style as well, take a look at those awesome parachute pants, belly shirts, and platform boots!

Hotter Than the Sun

Wrinkles are the bane of my existence. When I was wearing these shorts I seriously considered not sitting down the whole day. But, what are you going to do when your power goes out for three and a half days so you have to drive 40 minutes away to find refuge for all your food at your aunt's house and either choose to walk in the 100 degree weather for 14 miles or suck it up, sit down and drive there? Well looking at the shape that my shorts ended up in, I think it's easy to tell which option I chose.

The only bonus was, at least my shorts kept me cool!
