The early 2000s were a…questionable…time for fashion, but that didn’t stop you from wanting to wear whatever the fuck Mandy Moore was wearing. However, you were probably in like sixth grade, so whatever you wore had to be approved (aka paid for) by your mom. She probably didn’t love that Carrie Bradshaw (a sex columnist) was your 12-year-old idol, so she used her power of veto wisely. Here’s a tribute to all the fallen trends that you never got to rock.
Even if you were only in like, fourth grade, it was an absolute tragedy that you weren’t allowed to wear basically a napkin with some strings on the back. Looking back, it is painfully clear that these were not shirts!! Classic example is when Keira Knightley goes clubbing in Bend It Like Beckham. Goals.
