We're taking a little stroll through the past to talk about our favorite fashion moments. Here, we walk with guest bloggersSara Guice and Miranda Boyle, who own clothing and accessories boutiqueThread.Sara:
First time I remember being aware of style: The Lakeside teen dance going into 6th grade. Miranda styled me from head to toe.
First pair of shoes I remember loving: My Ralph Lauren peep toe alligator shoes. I loved them so much I bought two of the same pair!
Most memorable first-day-of-school outfit: My St. Michael's uniform
Must-have clothing item or style when I was in junior high: Zinc pink lip gloss and electric blue eyeliner and mascara.
What I wore in my senior pictures: My soccer uniform
First piece of clothing or shoes I remember splurging on: LV bag
Most memorable wedding look: Picture of my husband I and after walking down the aisle, hair pulled back tight and makeup was amazingly perfect by Tim Mauer [owner ofMukhaCustom Cosmetics].
Item in my closet I've had the longest: My Hugo Boss skirt suits-loved those
Items I've literally worn out: My shoes. When I find a pair I like, I wear them forever!
Items I've bought multiples of: Sweaters and knits. When they fit well, I always get multiple colors.
Biggest fashion miss (aka: the style moment I wish I could take back): I got braces and a short wedge haircut right before starting middle school. Awful and scarring!
Biggest fashion hit (aka: the style moment that made me feel most amazing): My wedding day. I felt like a princess.
All-time most memorable style moment: In Israel. I got the most amazing haircut and makeover from a stylist named Avi.Miranda:
First time I remember being aware of style: I loved it as long as I can remember. My grandma Mac, "mombo" as we call her, was and still is one of the most fashionable people I know. She always had great shoes and jewelry. Her outfits were always perfectly put together-every detail.
First pair of shoes I remember loving: I had a pair of Reebok high tops (the kind Demi Moore wore in St. Elmo's Fire) that I absolutely loved and had more than one pair.
The thing I wouldn't take off as a kid:Growing up for the first few years of my life in Hawaii meant we were in super casual clothing all the time. But I was a huge fan of matching my top with a patterned pair of shorts.
Most memorable first-day-of-school outfit: I went to St. Agatha for first and second grade. I remember two things: First, I did not want to wear a uniform, and second, I did not want to pull up my socks to my knees. But it was mandatory.
Must-have clothing item or style when I was in junior high: I loved the bandana as a headband. I was a huge fan of that look, you know, tied up at the top.
What I wore in my senior pictures: I wore what I thought was such a cute top from The Limited. It was grey and white and had a great drawstring at the waist. I also wore a gold herringbone bracelet I got from a high school boyfriend. It was my first piece of real gold jewelry.
First piece of clothing or shoes I remember splurging on:When I bought my very firstZelda overcoat from Henri Bendel. I worked there, and I won a gift certificate for a contest, and that is what I purchased. I was so excited, and I still have the jacket.
Most memorable wedding look: I loved my dress I changed into after my proper wedding dress. It was a gorgeous long, cream lace dress that my aunt purchased for me at Jacobsen's.
Item in my closet I've had the longest: My wedding band and engagement ring. I got married 15 years ago, and the ring is the exact same as it was when my husband proposed to me 16 years ago.
Items I've literally worn out:Any army jacket. I think it's the most flattering, versatile piece in a women's wardrobe. Everyone should have a great-fitting army jacket.
Items I've bought multiples of: Denim shorts. I literally have about 10 pairs, and I cannot get enough of them. It's the one item I cannot have too many of. I wear them dressy or casual and love coming up with new ways to wear them.
Biggest fashion miss (aka: the style moment I wish I could take back): BIG hair. So bad but seemed so cool back then.
All-time most memorable style moment/ biggest hit:New Year's Eve 2001. We celebrated in the Short North, and I wore a black v-neck sweater and the most amazing fully beaded floor-length Armani skirt. I topped it off with a vintage cream rabbit fur coat. I felt amazing.
