Reacting to My Old Clothing

As I mentioned in my last post, I cleaned out my closet recently after I realized that I don't like a lot of the items in it. After coming across several interesting items, I thought it would be funny to react to some of my past purchases and compare them to where my style is now. Needless to say, I definitely plan on continuing my closet clean out during the rest of my spring break and this coming summer.
Northface Fleeces

When I was in middle school and early high school, I had an obsession with Northface Denali jackets. I thought they were the most stylish items out there (lol) and I always purchased a matching pair of UGGs to go with them. For some reason, I always had to have peculiar colors, such as this purple/black combination. Throughout the years, I have had a green one and a neon pink one too. Obviously, I could not imagine wearing something like this today.

Floral Print Everything

This is one of the better items I came across in my closet that I am getting rid of. I used to love floral print to the point where I'd go into Forever 21 and buy 10 tank tops at a time in a variety of floral prints because I thought it was stylish. While some floral print is okay in doses, it does not appeal to me much these days. While I do love patterns, I prefer Lilly Pulitzer or plaids and stripes over floral print now. 

Juicy Couture

Juicy Couture was huge when I was a freshman and a sophomore in high school. Since I went to a private school that required a uniform, girls used to wear the track suits on dress down days. As usual, I took this trend way too far and collected my fair share of Juicy Couture items, including this iPad case. Why was it necessary for my iPad to be decked out in Juicy Couture? No idea. 

Animal Hats
I'm not sure if this was a fad anywhere else, but when I was a freshman in highschool, my friend and I bought these sock monkey hats. The mall had several stands selling animal themed winter hats and my friend and I used to wear them to track practice during the winter because we thought they were cool. Once again, no idea why. 

Vera Bradley
Vera Bradley was another huge trend in my high school. I am not exaggerating when I say that I owned basically everything in this exact print. Although I got rid of most of it, I came across this laptop case and I still have a few travel bags that I'll probably keep just to store things. 

Coach was one of my favorite luxury brands when I was in middle and early high school. I owned everything from flats to phone cases in a variety of styles and colors. Coach sneakers were also popular in my high school to wear with my uniform, although I could not imagine such a thing today. Today, the brand does not appeal to me. I am not a huge fan of the logo and I find most of the collectiont to be tired. 

Leopard Print 
Leopard print is still in style today depending on how it is worn. However, when I was younger, I did not wear it correctly. I would often wear several leopard print items together, which is complete overkill. I remember begging my parents to buy me a pair of Sperry's with leopard print on the side because I found them to be incredibly stylish. While I do like some leopard print today, it doesn't appeal to me often because I exhausted it back in the day. 

Party Dresses
Back in the day when I had to attend sweet 16's, I bought a new party dress for every occasion. Somehow, I still have most of them even though I haven't worn them in years. This was one of the better ones that I owned compared to the green one that I pulled out of my closet today. Let's just say that my taste in dresses has immensely improved! 

Thanks for reading! I hope I gave you a good laugh looking through some of my old clothing.
