My Sinful Past

Daniel Rainn Silk Top, Carla Mancini Penelope Bag, Forever 21 Leather Shorts and Wedges

In college I had literally zero fashion sense. I cringe in disgust just thinking about the heinous outfits I allowed myself to walk out the door with back in the day. I mean platform foam thong sandals themselves should be considered a fashion crime, but paired with pink Adidas tear-away pants and mid-riff baring tube tops?  VOMIT.  Words cannot adequately describe the foulness of my style (or lack thereof).  I’m seriously surprised my friends didn’t beat me unconscious with a chemistry textbook and force a change of clothes upon me before showing their faces in public in my company.  I’d like to think I’ve come a long way since then, upgrading to semi-sheer silk tops, leather shorts, and piles of chunky jewelry.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that five years from today, I can look back on my current style in a slightly more positive light than I do the platform-sandal-pink-pants-combo!

  14. Great outfit! I've been dying to buy those F21 wedges! They're perfect. I'm just heading to Seattle for some post-grad fun. Taking some time to adventure through the US before I make life changing decisions on where I want to be and what I want to do, haha.

    I've been meaning to get to The Alchemist! I've heard such great things.

  22. I adore that top. And the fringe on the bag is perfect. I think you kind of have to go through weird/terrible phases before discovering your true style. But i love your look now.

  23. "platform foam thong sandals" those words make me cringe as much as "crocs" and "uggs" do.

  33. Can't say I've always had good sense in clothing... But always quirky, hahaha.

    All I've really learned about fashion since elementary school is to stick to neutral colors and flattering shapes. Everything else seems to be the same free-spirited conglomeration of things I like. :)
