Way Back Wednesday - Bad Fashion

I haven't been blogging too much lately because I have gotten a little bored with it and didn't have that much to write about. Well, stuff that wasn't too personal that I could write about. Anyway to try to get back into it, I am playing WBW this week, brought to us by The Kept Woman. This week our assignment was to show some of our past really bad fashion choices. I had to dig deep for this one, because I stay pretty up on things and I don't think my choices are ever really bad. The first one I found was classic ugly 80's, but keep in mind I'm like, 13 in this picture. My mom probably bought the dress for me, but I'm sure I had a hand in picking it. Maybe not, maybe it was all her idea. Anyway, I was the same height I am now, 5'6", and I had a rockin' figure back then.

In my private high school we had to wear dresses to chapel every Friday and I was in love with all things Laura Ashley. These next two dresses are both Laura Ashley, but man are they ugly. And these pics are both from college. I can't believe I bought these.

And this last one is from college as well. I don't know what I was thinking. Thankfully this was my freshman year, before I met Mike. That's all folks!

I think I had that first dress too! Don't you just love the 80's?

Mama Duck said...

Alright, that plaid dress looks so teacher-y! Very cute.

And I had two big, oversized shirts that matched the polka dotted dress...hey, polka dots were all the rage, my friend!

Glad you played, hopefully you'll find you blog groove again soon!

Laura Ashley!!! I'd forgotten about that cult of bad clothing. Those dresses are hillarious. The polka dot one is the best though!!! Too funny!!! I bet it was totally hip back then!!!

I played too. :)

i was actually a bit down since last week and this WBW is certainly lifting up my mood.;) i wonder if ten years from now, we'd look back at what we're currently wearing and think, "what the heck?!"...

Awesome pics!
I was so into Laura Ashley stuff too, loved that flowery old fashioned look. Now it looks like, totally Amish or something.

You rock the party in your b&w peplum though. F'n A.

While going through my pics of me in my early 20's I was like WHY was I trying to dress like a much older woman. The stuff I wore! I do remember the Laura Ashley craze.

Lucky Lum said...

Michelle said...

That first dress is HOT!

Great pics.

hah! You, Dunkin, and I must have shopped at the same store because I had that same dress in pic #1 as well.

I burned all the pictures of that era.
