In 8th grade, my first year in speech, I wore the SAME DRESS/SHOES COMBO TO 7/11 TOURNAMENTS. INCLUDING REGIONALS AND STATE AND OUR HOME TOURNAMENT.
I really regret this. And now I have so much stuff that I can literally wear something different for every single Speech AND each debate tournament. That’s like 20 tournaments minimum.
Buy some clothes kids. Don’t be outfit repeaters.
Also in freshman year, a guy on my team ripped his pants TWICE on the bus to State speech so we had to sew the hole back up AT 6 AM ON A MOVING BUS IN THE DARK. We fixed them but he ripped them as he put them back on so we had to do it again. Ugh.
Reblog with your outfit horror stories!
I. Wore. Yoga pants.
It was horrendous.
If it makes you feel any better, I got lazy and almost wore *GASP* my nasty old sweatpants that said HOLLISTER across da booty.They were from like 7th grade.
I always had great taste in clothes. /hair flip/ (its an all girls team! We tear eachother apart)
I m the only girl on my team that wears real clothes (blazers, skirts, nice, formal dresses). The rest of them wear like… idk like pants with sweaters or really frilly dresses that you’d find like in Forever21 on the skank rack. No professionalism.
And then there was that one girl who wore a sequined leather jacket, stilettos, and a dress that covered nothing to a tournament. Everyone was uncomfortable.
Personally, though, I wore a blazer with a long, flowy skirt once. That was a mistake.
My first year in speech was sophomore year of high school. I wore a lot of leggings and sweaters, I had one pair of black pants from a choir class in the 7th grade. By that time, they were getting way too short for me - but I couldn’t just wear leggings the entire tournament year. I had one outfit that made me look like a business woman that was a highlighted blue button-up and a black, grey, and matching blue pencil skirt. I loved that outfit, but my tights got a huge run halfway through the tournament (my first one, mind you), and I didn’t have any clear nail polish to stop the run or an extra pair of tights. If all that humiliation wasnt enough, my partner and I broke to finals in Duos, so I had to move around more with a huge rip in my tights. I finally got black slacks and two different blazers my junior year. I did a lot of Lewis Carrol and Disney stuff for events like PPI and expos, so people constantly told me to wear blue since I had blonde hair and looked like Alice.
