Embarrassing Outfits

For the Gallery this week the creative Ms Cain gave us the somewhat scary title of Embarrassing Outfits. I have had a look through the plethora of photo's (I am currently entrenched in Project Scan) so I have seen some pretty gruesome sights.

The combo of outfits + hairstyles, I think, are what makes a truly embarrassing outfit.

I am on the right.

Haircut: Thanks to a friend (not the one in the picture) whose only hairdressing qualification was sweeping up hair in the local hairdressers.
Outfit: This was at a time in my life when no one had told me, I really didn't have the legs for shorts.
Excuse: It was 1984?

I am on the right.

Haircut: And styling, my Mum...thanks Mum.
Outfit: Various hand me downs, knitted by various Aunty's. This is a standard outfit, it was imperative I wore several layers of wool, making me appear..em cuddly...in most photos of me as a child.
Excuse: I actually have two for this one; 1. I didn't dress myself  2. My Mum is many great things, fashion forward, sadly, is not one of them.

Haircut: Long, usually with a badly cut fringe and cow licks making fringe jump up. Here, worn with a black hair band that matches practically nothing else in the outfit,
Outfit: I am going to leave the baggy jumper, as I am still a fan of baggy woolen cardies and jumpers (see above for underlying reasons for this). The leggings though, I have no excuse, I am ashamed...and at the time I loved them so.
Excuse: I was going on holiday, dressing for comfort, what you wear on holiday doesn't count...

Now go and check out some more crushingly embarrassing outfits over at Sticky Fingers (link at the top of this post)
