As adults, we find that the holiday season involves traffic, shopping, and weight gain. But when we were younger, we never thought about the chaos behind the season. We just cared about eating lots of ham (and ice cream) and opening our gifts! Also, you looked forward to wearing new threads on Christmas and New Year's Eve. Here, we share our festive #OOTDs from our childhood as a way for us to greet you a Happy New Year!
1. Mixi Ignacio, Graphic Designer
"One thing that I love about this photo is I could sport this haircut and not look like too tita. Now, I just can't do that."
2. Charlene Owen, Staff Writer
"This mint-green dress used to be my favorite because I loved the color, it had cute hearts in front, and a bow at the back. Also, I had awesome bangs back then. Haha."
3. Ana Pascual, Staff Writer
"This was the one Christmas that we adopted someone from the center for the holiday. Her name was Tara and we bought her a dress to wear on that special day."
4. Ira Nopuente, Associate Fashion & Beauty Editor
"I remember my fail-safe New Year's outfit would be anything red—this would then be worn with tights and ballet flats. My mom said this photo was taken after a long crying session. I think it was because I was scared of the firecracker noises."
5. Ysabel Yuzon, Managing Editor
"Twinning with my fave baby cousin from head to toe on Christmas because that’s how it’s done. Nothing says rockstar like floral orange pants."
