Apparently I've Stopped Growing...

7.01.2011





Because these shorts fit me when I was just 15 years old. Granted, a few short years is not that long a time for your body to completely change. ...Right? Or am I the odd ball here? Either way, I'm glad I didn't have to throw out all my old clothes. I never knew how to dress back then, so I just wore whatever everyone else was wearing at shops like Hollister, Abercrombie, and American Eagle. I don't personally shop there anymore, but I was still able to keep a few items from back then that aren't totally atrocious. Like these shorts.. I bought them from Hollister ages ago, but I still wear them from time to time. Do they scream "I wore these as a teenager"? I hope not... I'm trying to keep it a secret.

  2. These shorts are adorable and definitely do not scream 'I came from Hollister.'
    I love the contrast between a giant top and a tiny bottom.

  3. Your shorts are great (and so are you!)! I don't think they scream "I'm a wanna-be teenager" at all. I'm the same as you and still have some pieces from those stores floating around in my closet. I actually really like Abercrombie shorts, and I have a few other pieces that I wore when I was 15 that I still adore. So yay, go us.

  4. The body changing thing depends....I'm with you with not changing so much because I've maintained a similar weight since my sophomore year of HS until now as a junior in undergrad. so muscle mass changed if anything. I think that if you watch what your doing, your body doesn't rapidly change as much as just eating out all the time and being inactive. Lol. It really depends haha xD some people CAN eat out all the time and still be thin! D:

    and the shorts are cute! I don't really catch an air of super popular teenage brand from it. So I think that's good! hahaha :D

  5. I think they're super cute!! I was totally the same way until I was a Sr. in High School. That's when I decided I didn't like those stores and started my own trends. haha!

  7. Ohh those shorts are sooo cute, I love the pattern on them, and when paired with the simple loose t and amazing necklace it's a great combination!
    I definitely can;t fit into my clothes from when I was 15, my bum has grown too much (thank god!) I had the hips of a 8 year old boy back then haha

  8. Man, Hollister has gone downhill since then I guess! These shorts are so adorable, but have you seen what's in the store these days? It's dreadful! :0

  9. They are adorable! I kept some hollister jeans that were a gift from years and years ago... although I've never been able shop much there due to choking on the fragrances that whap you in the face upon entering the store! F21 and thrift stores, please!

  18. I love it when I can keep something for what seems like forever and it fits me perfectly every time I try it on! ... hasn't happened lately though, because i'm pregnant now. . . BUT I hope I can revert to my old size come fall. . . close it it, at least. =) The shorts are VERY cute! They look perfect on you!
