3. You will want to return things you bought at Forever 21 but you CAN’T.
Because they only give store credit. Assholes.
4. Ditto American Apparel.
Because those jerks also don’t allow returns.
5. Your jeans will fit awesomely when you first put them on in the morning and then get baggy at the end of the day.
6. You will convince yourself that maybe-too-short dress you have is OK for work — and then regret wearing it all day.
Without thinking about how it’s dry-clean only.
Of course you will never actually dry-clean it.
10. You’ll get your hair did.
12. You will fail to knot your bikini straps tightly enough and they will come loose while you’re swimming.
13. You will find something to buy in a vintage store and feel like a badass…
14. You will pair a tunic top that is ALMOST A DRESS with leggings and hate how your outfit looks by the end of the day.
15. You will cut off your own jorts and the legs will be uneven, which will drive you crazy.
16. You will try pull off irreverently pairing sneakers with a dress, like Rihanna does…
19. Your light-colored scarf will get lint all over your black coat.
And just end up wearing your plain Calvin Klein T-shirt bra all the time because it’s easier.
22. No pair of heels is actually comfortable.
And they all make you feel pretty much like, well, crap.
23. You will never go out of your way to buy a slip for that white thing you have that needs one.
25. You will swear to yourself that you’ll get things tailored so they fit perfectly…
But you’ll never actually bother.
28. You will never lose five pounds to fit into something you haven’t worn yet.
29. Your crop tops will never be work-appropriate.
No matter what magical thinking convinces you that they can be so.
30. Your sequined stuff will catch on everything.
Do not even TRY to get it near knitwear.
31. You will never find a way to seamlessly wear a bra with that clingy backless dress you love.
32. Basically, fashion can be incredibly fun and totally wonderful.
And freeing and expressive of who you are, and all of that.
