"Flash Back Friday" (FBF) "When I Was 15"

Who I was at 15, around this time is when I started to get into my appearance. I remember going to take pictures pretty much every other weekend. It was the thing to do - spend the night at a friends house and pack a bunch of clothes to make various outfit combinations for the pictures. My friends and I would make up color combinations so that our looks would all coordinate. We would do one group picture and then individual looks, but with something that tied us together for the group look. We would borrow each other’s pieces to get the look just right, though I remember that borrowing obvious pieces that others could identify was a no-no (at least for me). I never wanted anyone to pull my card that I was wearing so and so’s shirt or dress. Oh! Black boots like the ones I’m wearing were a must in our group!

I remember pairing this shirt with this dress. The dress was primarily worn without a top and I remember borrowing this top from a friend after the light bulb moment of “oh this would look cute under this” lol.

As you can see, I also started wearing make up around this time. This is when wearing lip liner was the in thing to do… Dark, rich line with a spot of color in the middle with a slight fade…. There was a science to it. I had to have eyeliner because the wing tip was my thing!

Looking back, I didn’t realize that though I was having fun, I should have been having more and not over thinking it! I was so afraid to make mistakes or what I deemed to be mistakes. I was taller than most of my friends and always looked a little more mature than a lot of girls my age, even when I didn’t try. I thought that was a bad thing. I was a giraffe in comparison to some, not knowing that people wanted to have my height. If I could go back, I would tell the 15 year old me that I was doing a good job and to not be so self conscious about things that really don’t matter, and who cares about what others think!
