Fashion Fail: Throwback Thursday Edition

We've all done it. That one outfit (or two, or three, or four) that we look back on and go "WTH was I thinking?!" Whether it's trying to follow that trend or forgetting the less is more rule, let's face it, it's inevitable. Even celebs, who have highly paid wardrobe stylist with access to exclusive garments, fall victim. 

For me, it was my college graduation dress. Now, this wasn't my only fashion fail. I've had multiple. The reason this one stands out is because it was a special day in my life. One that I have pictures to look back on forever. And I'll always think of how I should've worn something else! 

Ok, at the time I thought it was cute! My dress matched my tassel and my shoes were to die for and you really couldn't tell me much more than that! Looking back, I wish I would've worn something waaaay less form fitting and classic. The dress was too fitted and I kept having to pull it down (I have more curves than the model). It would've been perfect for the club, but not for graduating from college with honors. The overall look didn't represent me and my accomplishments. If I could do it all over again, I would wear something more like this:

Simple and chic!

Moral of the story: When searching for something to wear to a prominent life event, wear something simple and timeless. The last thing you want to do is be haunted by those pictures that you'll have forever. This is especially true in today's digital age where fashion fails never die!
