Fashion Crimes - AF


According to An Island Life: 

"In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response."


Since Facebook is cruel, and the people I am ‘friends’ with are even crueler, I have been forced to come face-to-face with some of the questionable fashion and hair choices I have made in the past.

People insist on posting old pictures – blackmail, in my opinion – and as painful as it is to revisit those times, I have to admit that if feels great seeing that I wasn’t the only one to have gone through four years of "awkward": the people who so easily post the pictures are also the similarly dressed people standing next to me.

My question today:

What is the worst fashion/hair crime you’ve ever committed?


If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at today's installation of Aloha Friday at An Island Life. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Letting my hair ends get dried out and not getting them trimmed.

When my best friend started coloring her hair, I had to dye mine, too. In the beginning it was only the best brands you could buy at the store - but as time went on, and money dwindled, I went for the cheap stuff. What I saw in my mind was a shimmery copper color, but what everyone else saw on my head as absolute carrot orange instead of my natural blonde. Sadly, there are pictures. Sigh.

A really bad perm from JCpennys salon. Just terrible poodle tight curls.

Tami said...

LOL, Wearing so much make-up in the 80's I looked like a clown! and china blue eye shadow. Ugh! WHAT WAS I THINKING?!

Once I got a perm and they did it wrong so one side was curly and the other side was wavy. Sweet.

Probably using Sun-in on my very dark hair...or the whole 'tucking pants into matching (2 or 3 pairs) socks.' Please tell me other people did this?

In 7th grade my best friend was a blonde, I am a brunette. I wanted to be blonde so she brought over her bottle of Sun-In and went to town on my head. You spray it on dry hair and blow dry. After she finished my flowing locks were bright orange, not sunset orange, but Tang orange. I had to be in a wedding in a bright pink dress with that hair. My mom punished me after by cutting my hair off to a bob and I had to have the color grow out. Mortified. My school picture is evidence. Aloha and take care.

When I had a long tail braided in the back of my head, thru most of my high school life! Thank GOD that doesn't show up in old pictures....LOL

I bleached my hair once as I wanted really light hair. Once the bleach wore out and my hair went dark again I was told over and over again how much better it looked.

When I was in 4th grade my mother convinced me to feather my hair. The girl cut it too short and the darn thing looked like spikes. I was way ahead of my time. That was the last time I had bands and allowed mom to try to get me to do things.

Shelly said...

I tried to color my hair a dark red. Not sure why, just wanted something different. And it ended up like orange carrots and took forever to come out!

Oh girl...this is an easy one!

I was a sophomore, and I had that hairstyle that was short, really short all over, but the top was long, so my hair was really high!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to post that one soon...lol!

Hey..find me on FB (if you're comfortable)..lol.

Swoozie said...

LOL! Hope there aren't too many pics of me floating around with that BIG Eighties hair-do that I sported.......

I would be mortified!

Jeremy said...

I don't know but my wife thinks I commit fashion crimes all the time.

Jennifer said...

Oh there are so many. I am not into fashion, I prefer comfort. Split ends, not wearing the latest trends (I am a SAHM, I love yoga pants), I do not were high heels, I do not paint my fingernails or toenails I do not wear make-up...the list is endless....

American in Norway said...

BIG BIG BIG Texas Hair....
But gosh I LOVED HS... & I love the old pictures... (just shows how far I have come...LOL)

Mighty M said...

Probably the pre-9th grade perm I got. My hair was a big frizz ball!!

Becca said...

I permed my hair in 6th grade...enough said!

East Coast Wahine said...

In high school - putting that bleach thing in my hair and it turned my black hair orange!! ACK! *L*

Banteringblonde said...

omg i had the geometric lopsided hair cut ... onside shorter than the other ... hello 80s

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Definitely the 80's perms...

diana said...

i don't think it was a "crime" because we were just doing what was supposedly fashionable at the time. but looking back and seeing it in pictures, it sure can make one cringe.

i think the clothes in the 80s were the worse.

Veronica Lee said...

I wanted a perm that looked like Farrah Fawcett's but it was a complete disaster!!

Mommy24cs said...

I too was a victim of the 80's perm. Strangely enough all photographic proof of me with the hairstyle are missing. I have no idea what could have happened to them ;p

kailani said...

It would have to be that perm I had in high school. I thought I was so cool at the time but now I'm too embarrassed to even look at my yearbook photos!

Kekibird said...

Oh lord. I had a "step-cut" back in 6th grade, like 1992. It was the cut of boys and I got it. My super curly hair took off and made a mushroom explosion on my head. So bad....

Anyone ever wear a bodysuit?? It was like a leotard/onesie for adults?? Yeah...those were bad too.
