Describe an outfit that makes you feel good. (It can be from any period of your life.) Double points if you post a picture of yourself in the outfit.
Take yourself back to 1991. Put yourself in my shoes: I was a dork, there’s no other way to describe me. I was in Honors classes, awful at gym, sang in the choir, never kissed a boy. I wanted to be cool, I even hung out with cool kids (well, they were at least cool to me). I tried to dress fashionably, to downplay my giant glasses and even giant-er buck teeth (braces would come shortly after). I begged my thrifty mom to buy me name brand clothes, even though they weren’t cheap.
When I was in 7th grade, I had to interview someone for a project in the gifted and talented program, and I picked Patrick Kennedy, son of Ted Kennedy (further dork evidence). My preparation for the interview including picking out what I considered to be the perfect outfit. I put all of my “cool” clothes together. I thought I looked awesome:
– blue Skidz short overalls (one strap down)
– black BUM Equipment tee-shirt
– brown boat shoes with the laces unties but ties into that curlicue thing
– black Chicago Bulls hat
