It's only fair

So, yeah, the masthead right now is comprised of my favorite thrift store outfits of 2011 (you can vote over there on the right, y'know).

It seems only fair that I should also highlight my most mortifying moments, too. Of which there were many.
Let's call them learning opportunities. Sigh.

In no special order (and you can click on the photo to embiggen. IF YOU MUST.):

The pink skirt with blue and white sheer blouse get up on the right is from June 1, 2011...I called it "lessons in incorrect dressing."

This could have been a perfectly cute outfit if the shirt fit. But no. I really need to give that pink pleated skirt another chance.

I can't really explain why I look so damn sad in the outfit shown on the left. It was June 11, 2011. I believe I used the phrase oompa loompa to describe it. Apt.

I so want to be the girl that can wear a long white white sleeveless dress with fab jewelry and shoes and maybe a scarf. Like a lady in a spiegel catalog. Suffice to say I am not that lady, as June 21, 2011 proved. Ick.

At least on June 7, 2011, it wasn't really that I put the clothes together wrong. I just can't carry off this dress. Lumpy. I love red with polky dots but this went on the giveaway pile the minute I took it off.

Apparently, June was not my month. Well, actually, it's just that I was new at this in June. So I made a LOT of mistakes. Like June 19, 2011. WTF? Could I BE shorter?

Man, I was really TRYING in the outfit I wore on August 8, 2011. Blech. I gave the skirt away. I'm gonna try the jacket again though.

Last one. Worst one, I think, because I like each individual item but I put them together in the most horrible way possible on September 16, 2011.

Yes, it's true that my selections for worst outfits of 2011 are also really unfortunate photographs of me. But, I covered up the head part and just looked at the clothings in order to choose. Still, yeeeeeek. Bad photos, my gawd.

Okay! Moving on!

  1. This is so much fun! I want more voting, more retrospectives, more comparison and contrast. I'm a My Life in Cardigans reader and I vote!
    Your "worst" outfit was on my birthday; you were too distracted by the enormity of the day to choose correctly.
