Fashion Confessions…

Top_secret So, we all have them, don’t we? Those dirty, dark little fashion-related secrets that we hope no one will ever find out about because if they do, we’re in a helluva lot of trouble with The Fashion Police.

Well, relax. We have those secrets too. And because it’s almost Easter and we’re feeling in an "I’ll show you mine if you show me yours" kinda mood, we’re going to tell you about them. The deal is that you have to tell us some in return, OK?

I confess that I…

* Don’t own a single pair of black trousers
* Or a white shirt
*I have never understood the appeal of Tory Burch’s famous flats
*And I look ridiculous in a DVF wrap dress – no, they really don’t "suit all shapes!"
*I wear Uggs to walk the dog
*But only to walk the dog
*I’ve only just managed to break the habit of buying clothes without trying them on
*So I end up sending a lot of unworn clothes to the charity shop…
*Up until about two years ago, I had never owned a pair of flats
*Now I wear them every day
*But never for anything even vaguely “dressy”
*I more or less live in skinny jeans during the week
*And I can’t seem to stop buying white vest tops – even although I have more of them than I care to count…

Got a fashion confession?
Either tell us about it in the comments section, or email it to us as a guest post. It’ll make you feel better to get it off your chest…

    When I get a new item in my wardrobe, I want to wear it everyday, so I try to get away with doing so whenever I can.

    I wear flats everyday during the week… I have a white skirt which I don´t wear NOW ´cause it´s see through… and I used to buy everything in black, but now I am working on that 🙂

    When I get up in the morning, I have to resist the urge to wear my sweats or pajama pants to class. Sometimes I don’t resist hard enough…

    Let’s see.
    I wear racerback tops with a regular bra, and I don’t give a damn that my bra straps are visible.
    About 95% of my clothes are black. I’ll wear black (and nothing but black) also during summer months.
    I am always overdressed. Cannot help it, I love a bit of drama and flair daily.
    I haven’t in my entire life found one hat that looks good on me.
    I’m not sure if it’s a fashion offense, but most people think I’m strange for not tanning at all (and not even trying). So by the end of summer I’m still showing off my blindingly white skin.
    I don’t own a single pair of blue jeans.
    Wrap dresses make me look like a cleaning lady.

    I don’t own a single pair of skinny jeans, and I can’t imagine the day that I’ll move away from my trusty boot-cut Levi 518s. Ever.
    I have about 4 handbags in my regular rotation and I’ll generally carry one of the four for weeks at a time, with no regard to season, weather, or occasion.
    I’ve been known to do denim on denim, but only if they’re very different shades and it’s dark outside.
    I repent! I repent!

    I have maybe three t-shirts that are long enough to cover my midriff. I can’t bring myself to buy new t-shirts because the old ones are “still good” – except I never wear them because they’re too short.

    I wear trainers during the work-week because I usually carry around one of my huge handbags and my laptop so I’d be afraid I might fall over in heels.
    I have a serious handbag and shoe/heel addiction and have way to many of both. I get very impulsive during my shopping sometimes and buy handbags/shoes I then never wear because I have nothing that goes with them.
    I walk my dog in the most awful clothes ever, because it’s that time of day when you just wake up and think it’s not likely you’ll meet anyone you know, but then you do and it’s totally embaressing. Because you have no make-up on, haven’t done your hair, are wearing white adidas sneakers and old black skinnies (very VERY old ones) and a big coat = nightmare scenerio!
    I totally love to overdress (except while walkin the dog, as mentioned above..)
    I daydream about marrying someone who will afford my handbag/shoe budget but then no, I just go into minus on my account..gulp.
    I have one pair of PJ-pants that look like harrem pants.
    and I better stop now.. 😀

    I wear Crocs! But that may not count, since I don’t consider them a fashion item. I work in a hospital, and have a pair with no holes that match my scrubs. When you’re on your feet 8 hours straight and in shapeless scrubs anyway, you may as well wear comfy ugly shoes.

    I don’t own a white shirt (and never wear white t-shirts either).
    I buy lots of dresses and end up wearing them once and then looking longingly at them forever after.
    I always wear a top that I’ve just bought the day after.
    I live in skinny jeans and slim cut jeans.
    I can’t let go of clothes – even the REALLY bad outfits…

    I don’t own any plain t-shirts.
    I own far too many retro or whimsical t-shirts.
    I can’t walk in heels, but every once in a while I will buy a pair just so I can look at them and sigh.
    I don’t own a single handbag.
    Moreover, I don’t understand how people can love handbags so much.
    I buy plenty of beautiful but flimsy sundresses even though we don’t get sun in the UK, and I freeze to death even in the middle of summer.
    I overdress. I can’t help it.
    I own far too many black items of clothing – but my best friends are goths, so I hardly ever get to wear my black clothes (they have the monopoly on black).
    I won’t wear leggings, skinny jeans or anything ‘on trend’.
    I buy party dresses but never have anywhere to wear them too.
    I frequently wear a new piece of clothing as often as I can get away with it.
    I don’t own belts, so I’m forever yanking my trousers up.
    I have lots of pairs of striped long socks. I wear them. No-one can stop me.

    During the winter I always wear my REALLY old n ugly sneakers. Im way to afraid to wear shoes I like during winter cos I think I’ll destroy them.
    If there’s a trend everyone loves I’m likely to hate it cos I dont wanna be like everyone else.
    I got lots of damn expensive clothes that I never wear cos I dont like em or am afraid to destroy them.
    I wear some of my jeans even if theres holes in them.
    I don’t have no belts, so my jeans always slide down a bit.

    i don’t own a single pair of ballet flats and think they’re ugly as hell.
    i will sometimes break the cleavege/mini skirt rule.
    i love wearing a million different colours at the same time.
    i never dress completely in black. it might be superstition.
    i can’t remember that i have ever owned a white shirt.
    i don’t always match my handbag and shoes and will sometimes carry the same handbag for days on end just because i’m too lazy to change it.
    i wear jeans almost every day (not the same pair, though)
    although i do buy sexy lingerie, i always end up wearing only white cotton stuff. and my bra and panties don’t always match.
    i’m not too bothered about visible bra straps.

    I have three pairs of Irregular Choice Heels (not the ugly ones) and I can’t walk in any of them.

    Have an insane amount of handbags/shoes.
    Keep buying high heels, but ended up just wearing flats.
    I have way too many long necklaces with statement pendants.
    All my tops are too long…

    I don’t own a white shirt and hate it when magazines list them as a “classic wardrobe staple”
    I wear my Ugg boots around the house in winter, but would NEVER leave the house in them.
    I don’t own any trousers, it’s skinny jeans or dresses all the way.
    I secretly hate the wide leg jean look, why would you want to dress like a man?
    Sometimes I sleep in socks if it’s really cold.
    I only own one pair of trainers for exercise only.
    I hate visible bra straps in summer so am always wearinbg my flesh tone strapless bra even though I have about 10 sets of Agent Provocs!

    I don’t own a white shirt ( looks like most of us don’t!!)
    My bra straps are visible when I wear vest tops.. and I don’t really care
    I own too many pairs of black heels, and still crave more
    I have loads of brightly coloured t shirts but 9 times out of ten go straight for the black ones
    I own too many black t shirts
    I’m a sucker for anything with a bow 🙂
    .. or anything with cherry print!

    I keep buying jeans and lovely patterned tops even though I work in a suit-and-white-shirt-environment. I regularly stand in front of my wardrobe in the morning cursing my stupid shopping behaviour. I do own two white shirts, though.

    I go to a cosmetology school with a very strict all-black, no-denim policy, so I wear leggings every day. The same leggings. Every. Day. With the same t-shirt. And I don’t care.
    I also don’t care if my bra is showing. I’m pretty flat so in the summertime I feel like I’ve really gone all out if I’m wearing a bra at all. Also: I don’t own a single pair of panties that matches any of my bras.
    I LOVE high-waisted jeans BECAUSE they make your butt look bigger. In fact, when I’m trying on clothes, I ask myself “Does this make my ass look fat?” and if the answer is no, I keep looking.
    I don’t own a single purse. I mean, I do, but they both have broken straps. Also, except when I’m at school, I just don’t have that much stuff to carry around. I’ve never been able to figure out what girls carry in those big huge purses they all have, and why they need so much more stuff than I do.

    This is just too good…
    * I own over 50 bras and 75 Gstring… I don’t own a pair of normal panties.
    * I don’t own a pair of flats – I wear heels to Uni, which brings me to my next crime:
    * I always overdress. Better to overdress than underdress, I say.
    * All of my clothes fall into one of these categories: satin, lace, black, or transparent. Sometimes all four.

    I own not one but two pairs of Naot clogs, which are the Israeli version of Birkenstocks. I haven’t worn either pair in over a year but they are still hanging out in my closet.
