One of the most popular sections of Stylaphile is my Flashback Friday series where I share somewhat embarrassing photos from my past.
As much as I’d like to think I’ve always been a fashionista, there were times that I just got it wrong. So very, very wrong. I think the reason that readers like this section so much is that it’s relatable. We all look back at photos of ourselves and have those “What the hell was I thinking” moments. Ten years from now, we’ll probably look at our current Instagram feed and think the same thing about what we’re wearing today.
Remember this. Even some of the most celebrated famous people have been known to get it very wrong on the red carpet from time to time. It’s okay (and even therapeutic) to be able to laugh at yourself. It’s the only way to learn from your (fashion) mistakes. And from life in general.
