Good afternoon, style mavens,
I’ve decided to add a new dimension to my blog. Inspired by Throwback Thursday on Instagram, where social media aficionados post a photo of the past, I’ll select a few photos of my own style back in the day and say what’s wrong with each ensemble. Fortunately, I committed several fashion faux-pas in high school, so this should provide plenty of juicy content!
Here we go!
Years and years ago (more like four), I attended the The Hague International Model United Nations conference in, well, The Hague. Snugly set in South Holland in The Netherlands, the coastal city threw torrential winters and downpours our way. Since the conference took place in January, snow, snow, and more snow blasted us, along with rain here, there and everywhere.
What does depressing weather mean in terms of fashion? In my young mind, it meant wearing an ugly, rainproof trench coat.
Luckily, I’ve eliminated these pieces from my closet. The lesson from this blast from the unfortunate style past? Don’t mix loud prints, avoid ill-fitting coats and jeans, and try to stay away from American Eagle if you can.
Here’s to improving our style, one day at a time (;
