A celebration of the fashion missteps of otherwise stylish individuals--from celebrities and fashion and media insiders to regular humans.
In everyone's closet, there is one article of clothing that truly demonstrates a momentary lapse in fashion judgment. I Actually Wore This is the first book to celebrate these fashion blunders and lets us in on how and why they happened: the purple velour jumpsuit that was supposed to make you look dangerous, the Baron von Trapp-ish Tyrolean jacket that seemed like a good idea after six beers in Munich, and the cocktail napkin-sized swimsuit. Each of these cringe-inducing items somehow managed to find its way into the wardrobe of a typically fashionable person, and the authors are here to tell you how that happened.
In I Actually Wore This, otherwise stylish individuals, from Bergdorf Goodman's fashion director to actress and SNL alum Molly Shannon, choose the one item from their closet that best illustrates when taste took a holiday, allow themselves to be photographed in it, and tell the story of how, where, and why they bought this article of clothing that makes them mutter "what was I thinking?" each time they see it.
