A reader recently remarked that since her mama dressed her in plaid so often during her childhood, she couldn’t bring herself to wear plaid as an adult.
This made me laugh.
My own mother used to dress us in red, white and blue frequently. It was actually very cute, especially since she tied red YARN ribbons on the end of our pigtails. YARN. We are talking a serious level of cute, here.
But to this day I cannot STAND navy and will not under any circumstances purchase a navy garment.
And I wear lots of white, but no red.
So let me ask: is there a color, a style or a garment that you wore in former years that you just can’t bear to wear now? What and why?
This may be part of why I recoil with such horror at the “boyfriend blazer” look that’s so fashionable right now; it reminds me of my college years, which were NOT. PRETTY.
