:kitty: Yes, I am sure we all have worn something that we wish we could forget. Laughing
What are some of the clothes you wore that would fall under this category?



-------

Well, I can remember 3 of them:

1. My jeans with the bottom rolled up. LOL... too funny...

2. This hideous dress, it had a flowery print and big shoulder pads... I looked like a girl who couldn't decide whether she wanted to play football or wear a dress to church :Hahaha: I ended up tearing off the pads...

3. I had a pair of shiny big black shoes I use to wear. I guess it was during the MC Hammer time period... hahaha

How about you guys? Let's share!

* Dresses and shirts with those huge shoulder pads are the top offender.

* Satin jackets--mine was flourescent. UGH!

Actually, my main problem now is trying to find pants that aren't low-riders. Every pair of pants I find sits below the waist and I find that uncomfortable...especially since I have no hips to hold them up.

Legwarmers.
Banana clips in big hair. LOL
And BIG jewelry. Everything was BIG!

Just about anything that I wore in the 80's! I don't know what happened to fashion in that decade, but it was pretty hideous, though I did go along with it all, lol.

The pinstripe jeans.
I have to agree with Savannah on the leg warmers and jelly shoes.
The Madonna wanna-be outfits. (Lacy tank-top over plain tank top. Thankfully my mom wouldn't let me do the lacy tank-top over bra, otherwise I probably would have! Thanks Mom!)
Huge, oversized button-down shirts, with a wide belt at the waist, over leggings or stirrup pants.
Flourescent anything.

My mother worked at K-Mart and would get those hideous blue light specials and she bought me this yellow dress that I wore for a school picture. I was very chubby and thought a green barrette with the yellow dress would look pretty...I still cringe when I look at that picture. I looked like a yellow sausage in it.

I loved acid washed jeans in the 80's, I used to always tear out the shoulder pads on clothes because I have broader shoulders and didn't need any help in that area. Jelly shoes were another thing I wore but did they hurt your feet and yes, there was a time when you could be different colored pairs of pump dress up shoes and I had four of five pairs of those in yellow, pink, white and probably some other very pastel looking pair of shoes.

I also had the poodle hair style to go with my shaker sweaters and I wore jeans cuffed up at the bottom with the socks on the outside....

GO 80'S!! Oh yea, do you remember the Princess Di dresses? They had the frilly collars? I had a few of those for work. Those actually look pretty scary now...

LOL same here. I don't like pants with the waist above my navel, I just don't find them comfortable. But as far as awful clothes...I was into leggings BIG TIME in 8th grade. They had kind of "gone out" with the 80s/ early 90s I guess b/c none of my friends wore them, but I loved them! And I wore them. A lot. Too much. LOL!

Oh boy, does THAT bring back memories!! :Hahaha: When I was 14, my family went over to my Aunt Kathy's house for Thanksgiving. My brother had just bought a new pair of acid wash jeans the day before, and decided to wear them to Aunt Kathy's house. About an hour after we got there, we heard RRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIPPP! His brand new acid wash jeans ripped, when he sat down. (They weren't too small for him, either!) Then when he stood up, they ripped again! My Uncle Ron jokingly suggested that Aaron could probably rip a back pocket off with his bare hands. Aaron didn't try THAT, but he reached down, and very easily tore the leg that was unripped - just by pinching the fabric and pulling it! Apparently, the manufacturer had left those jeans in the acid wash just a LITTLE too long!! :Hahaha: It's a good thing that Aaron and Uncle Ron were about the same size . . . . Aaron's pants were disintegrating fast, and things were about to get embarassing! :haha:

ROTFL Rob!

Okay, raise your hand if you wore a fanny pack! grinsmiley
I remember my cousin and I almost killed ourselves riding our bikes to this yard sale to buy the last fanny pack they had. Laughing

I share what you've said, Savannah. I would always wear shoulder pads, and BIG (and cheap! ROTFL ) jewelry. My hairdosss were always ENORMOUS and frizzy and my make up STRONG, like Cindy Lauper's one...Ugh. What an hideous fashion. And yep...I also wore overzised sweatshirts! :shy: And much, too much golden and silver-coloured clothes. grinsmiley :disco:

However, dear Savannah, I must confess that I never, but never wore fluorescent jelly shoes! :Hahaha:

However, there is a thing I loved from these times: Hello Kitty. I purchased all sort of items with her in it. And I'm happy she finally come back...even if I miss "My Melody" too much. :crySC:

Vanesa. :kitty:
