Fashion Sense

robin.jpgI haven’t always had the best concept of fashion but then again I grew up in the 80s and 90s so I never really had a choice. My parent’s wouldn’t know fashion if it hit them upside the head. Hell, my dad wears a fanny pack :paperbag: *here’s hoping he doesn’t wear it to my wedding.

You can see in the picture here that as a young child I preferred the color purple over a tasteful outfit. The big hair is understandable, this is probably circa 1985.

It’s taken me a long time to really figure out what clothes look best on me and what brings out my personality. I’d say my style is somewhere between girlie and dykie (is that a word?). I like to be feminine but I really like to be comfortable.

Shoes: I love chunky shoes that you would more likely see on a boy but I rarely wear anything resembling stilettos. I trip over my own feet. It just doesn’t work.Chunky Shoes That’s why I’ll be wearing either flip flops or sneakers for my wedding.

Pants: I like jeans best and my jeans are usually kind of loose although I used to wear really baggy guy pants. I’m actually contemplating trying on some guy jeans again because I like how they fit better.

Shirts: Years ago I used to wear a lot of tank tops and even at one point showed my mid-drift a lot. Now I’m just happy if I don’t have to keep adjusting my shirt all day long because of my hips or The Wonder Twins. My favorite kind of shirt is a boring tank, I have a gray one I love because it fits just right. I love peasant tops but they never seem to look right anymore, it may be the fault of The Wonder Twins.

SocksSocks: I like wearing funky socks that are stripes or polka dots but then I also wear boring white socks. I don’t really like socks though, they are always twisting around my my feet and pissing me off :pissed:

Accessories: I almost always wear small hoop earrings but am always losing them too. I always wear my glasses, except in bed and in the shower. Always my two rings and sometimes fun bracelets. I almost always have my hair back in a ponytail or something. Oh and I love baggy sweatshirts, especially old ones. I had one sweat shirt for so long I couldn’t remember where the stains and burns came from.

    This is all well and good, but I prefer it when you are naked.

    I love chunky shoes as well (but I have big feet, so I only wear them in the winter, when it is ok)

    I like plain socks. White preferably. BUT I do have some really wild ones I got on clearance, and I wear them sometimes to feel funky.

    I think that growing up when we did, our lack of fashion sense is NOT our fault.

    You and I have very similar taste in clothes and accessories. I think that if I tried to wear stilettos, I’d be in a full body cast for about eight months. Seriously. I did, however, wear 3 inch heels when I got married- but I didn’t have to walk far or move much.

    Fab – Obviously since you insist on naked pictures of me weekly for your comments on my blog services.

    Mutt – No, definitely not our fault.

    Avi – I’ve noticed.

    Angel – I am not willing to take the chance of me tripping while walking down the isle, therefore I shall be short for my wedding day.

    Your style reminds me of mine. Never will I wear any heels though, especially not stilletos. I like t-shirts best. I’m boring with socks, I just wear white ones all the time. I should totally buy some cuter ones.
