2. Why did we wear ballet pumps on rainy days?

I mean they were basically the only girls' shoe available in the '00s except trainers and stripper heels, but still. We definitely should've got into brogues sooner.

3. What was the precise date in the '00s when the very last girl wore a tie over a T-shirt for fashion reasons? And who was that girl?

There's a first time for everything and there's a last time for everything.

5. Did we wear dresses over jeans to make our jeans seem more glam, or our dresses seem more casual?

The shoes were so glam, look at the shoes. But the bootcut jeans were super casual. We just wanted it all, I guess.

8. Why were our bodies so long?

Our bodies were really long in the '00s.

11. Did the glitter seem like a subtle highlight at the time, or was the idea always to have glitter everywhere?

Honestly can't remember. Do remember that getting glitter in your eye hurt like fuck though.

22. Why did we only have two style settings, either full-on party girl or tracksuit?

I mean they were both great, but they were just so extreme.

23. When our parents said, "You're not going out dressed like that," were they maybe...right?
