Winter Edition: Day 10 > Something that scares you

This one was suggested by Miss Nemesis toward the end of the last round and I filed it away in my brain box. I think most (if not all) of us have some trend or ensemble we'd love to try if only it didn't scare us silly. We've tried it in the safety of our bedrooms only to turn chicken at the last minute and change into one of our go-to backup outfits before walking out the door.

Miss Nem said her thing was red lipstick (which she then decided to go for with fantastic results)

I have a friend who is terrified of skinny jeans. She owns a great pair and they look fantastic on her BUT she can't bring herself to wear them in public.

My sister is scared of tucking in her shirts.

A friend from my old neighborhood would love to become a girl who wears hats but is worried that she looks ridiculous (she doesn't).

I used to be scared of wearing red. It was a long slow road but I finally got over that one. I've still got a few more fashion fears lurking in my closet though.

What are you scared of? Bright colors? Boyfriend jeans? Winged eyeliner? Well, tomorrow I want you to take a crack at that fear. Jump right in and give it a try.

Come back tomorrow to link up or go add your photo to the Flickr group!


  1. I am afraid of belted tops, sweaters and dresses.

  2. K, I am "afraid of hats" girl. :) I have several super cute ones that I love to look at (and even have another friend who can rock a hat like no other), but I feel like I look SO dumb in them. I get an outfit ready and fix my hair for the hat, put it on and take it off saying, "I can't! I just can't!" Arrrgggghhhh!!!

    K, today I AM going to wear my plum colored cloche hat...for you. :) I actually just bought a pair of skinny jeans from a friend. Also fear on a stick for me. She assured me I look "great" (was she just trying to get rid of them?), but I have my doubts...serious doubts. I don't think I could bring myself to wear the hat AND skinny jeans together just yet. Baby steps my steps. :)

  3. Black, or 'all black'. Other ladies make it look super chic but I'm always afraid I'll end up looking like a funeral director.

  4. I'm scared of looking trendy. El stupido I know but I'm always afraid I'll look like a mom that's just trying too hard. I'm also afraid I'm too old which is completely and utterly ridiculous, I'm only 29, that's not even halfway to dead bc I'm going to live to a hundred and twenty- seven or something like that.

  5. I'm often checking in - is this age appropriate - am I too old to wear this. Maybe I'll venture into my daughter's closet for something fun ... and a little scary!
