I’ve been eagerly anticipating the launch of my redesigned website for months. Today, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, impatient to tear off the paper and show off my favorite new outfit to everyone.

Did you have a favorite outfit or article of clothing as a child? Were you known for this look?

Amanda shared a story with me about what her then three-year-old son Henry became known for wearing. He was obsessed with Superman, so every day he put on his blue Superman t-shirt, red nylon shorts, and a red Superman cape. The crowning glory was his favorite red fireman rain boots that he wore even in ninety-eight-degree weather. 

The year Henry wore his Superman attire went by quickly, but the persona he crafted during that time still sticks. He is a tough kid who works hard, plays hard, and never wants to be seen as weak, just like his favorite character. Today, the neighbor across the street still calls out to Henry, “Hey, Superman!”

Write about a favorite outfit, article of clothing, or another fashion statement you made when you were younger. Maybe, it was something unconventional you did with your hair, a tattoo, a notorious hat, or wild shoes.

  • Was it something you wore often enough that people connected that look with you? 
  • What message did your appearance communicate to the world?
  • What reaction did you receive from others?
  • How long did you wear or use that look?

Post your writing in the comments section below. I cannot wait to hear about the things you used to wear or the fashion statements you made! Send pictures if you have them.

All posts in response to our writing prompts in March will be entered into our drawing to win a free online coaching video—that’s a $20 value! Responding to this prompt is your last chance since we did not run a newsletter at the end of March. We will draw the name of our winner next week and announce it in the newsletter. Go for it!

The “Super Henry” look went everywhere in 2009: birthday celebrations, a ballet recital, the pumpkin patch, trick-or-treating, theme parks, and even school.
