My Style Then and Now: Thirteen!

Alexander Wang sweater / Karl PVC shorts / Jil Sander shoes / Eddie Borgo necklace / Gucci bag
Here we have it. The outfit I wore to my 13th birthday party at Oaks Park Roller Rink. That was an important day for many reasons: Ryan gave me the Space Jam soundtrack, I had a couples skate with Max, and I wore some lipgloss which was a new and exciting thing.

I have really strong memories of this outfit and I was obsessed with that sweater. The beaded floral choker and yin yang necklace were obviously essential to the look. I've grown out of the hormone nose and the braces, and have learned the undeniable, incomparable power of mascara since this picture was taken, but I still know all the words to the Space Jam soundtrack and I still suck at smiling in pictures.

  1. I think this is my favorite one yet, possibly for the blurb alone. Hormone nose, ying yang necklace, aggressively parted below the ear haircut, these are all things that speak deeply to me. I remember BEGGING my mom to buy me a similar sweater from DeLiA*s and she said it was too expensive and Ande said the rainbow was "lez" and I cried and cried. You're really doing it. Peter, you're doing it.

  2. Is this the day you fell in love with R. Kelly. I never saw Space Jam, can you believe that? Always love these blasts from the past.
