Closet Confessions: Fashion crimes in support of breast cancer awareness

Ashley's #ClosetConfession

Is it made from a disco ball? An aluminum can? Who knows! But I do know that I’ll never wear it again. It’s now pinned to one of my Pinterest boards in support of #ClosetConfessions and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Have you ever fallen prey to a bad fashion trend? A one-shouldered silver sequin top with a ruffled sleeve, perhaps? (Don’t judge me. I was in a hurry and it was on clearance.)

Whether your fashion faux pas is in hindsight (a pair of bell bottoms from your college days, for example) or was as recent as this summer, it can now be put to good use. You may never wear that heinous outfit again, but it can live on forever in support of breast cancer awareness!

Now through Sunday, Oct. 14, the Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Centeris looking for the best of the worst in
