Do you remember any fads from your youth? Popular hairstyles? Clothes?
Oh this could be a long one, I am a girl!!
Lets see, when I was young I remember having your bangs flipped back was just AWESOME! So I remember doing my hair like that for a rodeo. I also remember when I was older that BIG bangs were in and the bigger the better. That was about it with the hair. When I was 12ish though, it was popular to have a layered hair style. I do remember hating my hair color because I would be made fun of for it. I was called albino a lot. (But I am happy to say now that I love my hair color)
Clothes...when I was in elementary it was cool to roll up your jeans up. Kinda a fold thing. And then I LOVED wearing the knitt pants that had the straps at the bottom. We would also wear those with socks on the outside and scrunch those up.
When I was in the pre-teens I would wear Rockies...they were and still are a western pants. Also Wranglers when I was in High School. I made sure I looked nice and fit in, but I had my own style, modest dressing and that I guess would stand out. I was also more of a casual person, so I would wear more casual clothes, jeans and a t-shirt. I would only dress up for school when I had a game that day, and the whole team would dress up.
One thing that I think made me more self conscious of my wardrobe, and still even now, is being a "larger" person and not a stick I am always trying to wear things that aren't tight and flatter my body how it is and still wear the "in style" clothing. But as long as I could remember I was always very self conscious of my clothing and hair.
