But it is important to remember that we have all had them - none of us in this world are perfect and if it takes a few catastrophes for you to find your own personal style then so be it. I have certainly had my fair share of fashion fumbles - I went through a period of sporting hair bunches (in my 20's) that made me look like a Cocker Spaniel (in the words of a friend); I once wore a bright pink nightie with a picture of a cat as a t-shirt; and lets not mention the thick black eyeliner, it looked like I was a drag queen who had got into a fight...Ah Gemma, what were you thinking.
Well anyway, I have been scrolling the depths of Facebook today, looking back on the changes to my personal style and thought why not share the retrospective in personal style with my blogger friends...I even remember where most of the stuff was from...how sad!

See you don't have to always get it right, as long as your comfortable in who you are, what does it matter what anyone else thinks anyway.
I would love to see some personal style retrospectives form my fellow bloggers...have you had the fashion police knocking at your door?
Have a great weekend!
