    oh fashion...well im still not the best!

    I had one shellsuit (we could only afford one. thank god for having no money!!!) It was light blue and purple. Never wore it at bonfire night cos that was an accident waiting to happen.

    Jeans for some reason around the 90s that were black with a red or green kind of pockets???

    Cycling shorts that gave me camel toe....

    Them body tops that had press stud button things near your cotch. Always rubbed me and impossible to fasten when drunk.

    Always wearing trainers with no socks which made my feet stink.

    Kind of crunching your school socks so they werent up but not like ankle socks??? Cant explain it really!

    Only having the thin part of your school tie at the front.

    Wearing demin shirt, jeans and jacket all at once.

    And i had a thing were i wore sleeveless waistcoats when ever i went on the ale cos i thought i had a big bum and covered it up. I was a size 8! Ah bless!
    I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was. Now, what I'm with isn't it, and what's "it" seems weird and scary to me.

    Since 80s and 90s clothing is now back in vogue, so to speak, I am no longer ashamed of my atire back then, I had the original stuff not the Top shop copy which costs 5 times as much!

    Still got some dungarees from the 80s, they come in handy when decorating
    I soooooo wish I had not of dumped all my Mickey Mouse Sweatshirts, Nike basketball trainers and floral baggy blouses though.

    To the people who think the clothes they wore were really bad. Did you think the same at the time and only wore them just because they were fashionable?

    There were a lot of clothes back in the day that I genuinley thought looked good at the time, and since my taste has always been pretty much the same, I still think a lot of them look good.

    I always wanted to dress like Madonna when she first started. Trouble is, with a mop on top not disimilar to Leo Sayer a decade earlier, I never quite got the image right.
    I had all the plastic junk bracelets - hundreds of them right up to the elbows, with tatty bits of ribbon added for effect, and I even wore white lacey leggings under my tartan mini skirt (I know Madonna didn't wear tartan, but it's all I had at the time).... Then I would wrap half a rolled up net curtain in my hair and tie it in a big bow (with aforementioned barnet).... Add a Nik Kershaw snood and luminous fingerless gloves... et voila!
    Thank goodness by that time DeelyBoppers were out of fashion, else they would have been on my head instead of the old nets!

    Yes I was a bit embarressed at the time, but now I think they look good, especially as now all the teens and 20 somethings wear them and look cool, even though a lot of the 80s stylee is exagerated. (Think La Roux)

    I can remember shopping in Top shop late 80s and the clothes were cheap then, must of been as I was only 15 so wouldnt of had the sort of money kids get these days. Had a lot of 'Chelsea Girl' hand me downs from my sister

    OH YES I thought Madonna in 1984 was the bees knees and tried to copy her style...Kids from FAME were cool too, I loved to wear Miami Vice style pale pink cotton trouser suit with jelly shoes and toweling socks

    I was always about 6 - 12 months behind the fashion, by the time i'd persuaded my parents to buy me stuff it was past it
    The only thing to look forward to is the past

    Hey guys,

    Red Bull Cola are currently running an incentive on their facebook fan page where you could be rewarded with 50 ASOS vouchers for admitting to your most heinous fashion mistakes!

    All you have to do is post your fashion confession on their discussion thread (and even better - upload your photo evidence to the fan photos section) and include your name and city.

    Week 6: Fashion Confessions | Facebook

    They will then pick one they like and reward that person with 50 Asos.com vouchers

    Good Luck!

    Still.. I've been told that these days I dress like a cross between a terrorist paramilitary soldier and a birdwatcher! Must be an improvement...surely?
