1) My pixie cut. I modeled it after Gwyneth Paltrow's cut in Sliding Doors (one of my favorite movies to this day). Once I chopped my hair off, I never looked back. Although growing it out sure was a pain in the you know what. But I really did love this haircut, especially since I looked so young at the time that I felt it at least helped me look like I was in my upper teens. I was 21 and pretty sick of being carded all the time. Imagine that. Now if I don't get carded I think there's something wrong with my moisturizer.
2) The blow up furniture. Yes, I had a silver blow up armchair. Yes, I bought it at Spencer Gifts. Yes, I loved it. Yes, it was impossible to get comfortable while sitting on it. No, I didn't care. Does that answer all your questions?
3) The tight elbow-length shirt. I HAD SO MANY OF THESE. This was one of my favorites, though. It was soft and shiny, and I wore it with EVERYTHING. Plus, I just thought the elbow-length sleeves were SO much cooler than either short, three-quarter or long. They were DIFFERENT.
4) The patterned bell bottoms. OH MY GOD. Why on earth did I ever think these were a good idea? I think I bought them from Delia*s (R.I.P.) and I seriously was so excited when they arrived. Then I think I wore them a grand total of three times, because I could never figure out a) how to wear them or b) what to wear them with. I think I always wore this shirt with them, because it was the only item I had that actually matched the colors in the pattern. Plus, someone as short as I am should never wear bell bottoms. Period.
So there you have it. The height of 00's fashion and beauty, all in one picture. Pretty incredible.
Did you try out any of these trends? Or did you have others from the 00's that you loved? Let me know in the comments!
