I had a pair of gold... Yes GOLD Dr Marten boots
when I was about 4 or 5. I never wanted to take them
off, even when it came to going on holiday, I convinced
my mum to let me put them in the suitcase! The harder
part was getting her to let me wear them to the beach!
(Good times).

“...Fluorescent lime green Kappa Raincoat
which folded into a little bum bag! I used to
take it everywhere with me and felt so cool
whenever I wore it.”
My worst piece of clothing has got to be my fluorescent
lime green Kappa Raincoat which folded into a little
bum bag! I used to take it everywhere with me and felt
so cool whenever I wore it. I think I loved it so much
because my god sister bought it for me and I always
looked up to her so I treasured it. We always wore them
everywhere together. We accessorised with blue hair
mascara, glitter and pink lipstick! Oh dear.
Love me not...

Sarah Harmen's illustrations for love me love me not..

The worst item I've owned was a pair of huge, blue, fluffy hello kitty ear warmers. I thought they looked awesome but I cringe now when I look back at photos with me wearing them as not only do they look ridiculous but they were obviously were meant for people with larger heads.

The best fashion item I've ever had is a ginger bread man badge I got from my best friend at Christmas. I wear it on my coat and constantly get compliments for it.

"My mom bought me this beautiful floral cardigan last year, but its just too beautiful to wear, and it never leaves the house".

"When I was about nine I went to alton towers, and bought myself a 'nemesis' baseball cap with my hard earnt pennies as a souvenir. It's still agonising to look back at the hundreds of photos with me in that cap".

Jennifer Costello

"My worst item of clothing is a piece that has haunted me for years! I used to wear this massive blue puffer jacket everywhere. Looking back on the pictures of it make me cringe, I used to think it was so cool, when really I just looked like some sort of oversized beehive!

My favourite item of clothing is most definately my Vivienne Westwood bag. I remember the first time I saw her bags, I fell in love instantly, I knew that my god I had to own one some day. On my 21st birthday my dream, that had been 8 years in the making, came true."
