Fashion Faux Pas

 
~ Fashion Faux Pas ~
 
After my 'Listen, 15 year old Lisa..' post from last week, it got me thinking. As well as over doing it with the eyeliner and seriously hating on myself because of my acne, I have made so terrible fashion choices over the years. Ok ok,  I know you're not supposed to be a global fashionista by the ripe old age of 12, but that aside, I've made some terrible choice.. you'll so see what I mean now HA..
 
Neon, Pink Neon eeeeverywhere
 
If I could find this specific photo I would be showing it right now because I cannot truly express how much I used to love and wear neon pink. I have a photo my mum took of me probably around 13 years old, with a neon pink; top, shorts, River Island bag and sunglasses, plimsolls, hoop earrings and bangles - oh how I wish I was joking! Back in 2009 it was probably all in but I took that colour and brought it to a whole new level. God, that faze in my life was embarrassing.  
 
Yeti Boots & Ponchos
 
This trend is going way back to when I was in about year 4/5 of primary school. Who remembers the actually absurdity of yeti boots (I had the pink pair) and knitted ponchos together.. to be honest I'm not sure which one is worse haha..
 
Jeggings and Plimsolls
 
So this combination was actually a trend, I vividly remember my best friends older sister wearing them together and desperately wanting to be like her. It was the fashion.. but not the way I wore them. Jeggings were baggy on me because I had yet to develop a figure (yes at one point in my life I used to resemble a stick insect, mainly because I never used to gain weight haha) and my white pumps were always as bright as the sun. Just think 13 year old Lisa went to Radio 1's Big Weekend in 2010 when it was in Bangor, wearing white wash baggy jeggings and bright white, shapeless plimsolls #STYLE. I got that festival look down to a T, Vanessa Hudgens was quaking in her boots.
 
Bangles
 
Anyone else used to have the attitude of 'the more bangles the better', I remember going to watch one of my cousins in a football match yeeears ago and I vividly can recall having at least 10 beaded bangles on one arm - bloody hell. There'd be beads in black, gold, silver, neon pink, neon yellow, charms, simply metal bands. I'd put on as many as I could until they were basically up nearly to my shoulders!
 
... oh you know what, they really were simpler times back then...!!!

  1. I was definitely part of the bangles "trend". I had tiny wrist though so they always used to fall off! xx

    1. Oh god I know I'm so glad the bangles trend has officially died, having 20 on each wrist is not a good luck, R.I.P to that!! thank you! xx

  5. I was actually scrolling past this to find another blog post but the ponchos bit caught me and made me laugh so much I had to stop to comment :') I had 3 and all were equally as hideous as the next, who on earth decided they'd make a good fashion statement?! Extra style points if they were knitted too :') Loved this post! xx
