A New Bag for a New Year

My blogging has been rudely interrupted by the reappearance of school into my schedule. Sigh. How annoying. Fortunately, it's looking like I may have more success as a sophomore than as a freshman- cuter boys, higher level French, no more Great Expectations, fewer apprehensions about wearing knee socks, etcetera. However, despite these minor perks, school is still school, and I will therefore be spending most of my time amidst the unwashed miscreants (if I may borrow a phrase from Julia Stiles) who walk those hallowed halls in Uggs and Abercrombie than all of my lovely fellow bloggers. Expect more as the school year progresses- I think that this might be an interesting one.

Here is the school bag. Seems to be holding up pretty well so far, knock on wood (it's much fatter when stuffed full of books).



Here is my beloved new hat. I am dying for an opportunity to wear it. I'm thinking I'll wear it with sparkly tights, an accordian pleat skirt, and an all-encompassing navy blue pea coat for a delightfully dramatic ensemble. Of course, the aforementioned unwashed miscreants at my school would never appreciate the ensemble, but they can suck it because they wouldn't know fly if it bit them on the nose.


So yeah. I'm off for the weekend to see my cousin's adorable baby Charlotte get babtised. And by the way, isn't Charlotte the prettiest name? I think it is one of my very favorite girl names, right up there with Adelaide and Piper and Emma. Well bye!

p.s.- I feel as though I look very silly in both of these pictures. Sorry about my lack of camera wielding skills.

I love your hat...and your school bag...and believe me, if i see another pair of uggs with a "ripped" abrecrombie jean mini i might actually strangle myself with it...

I love the bag and the hat. Very chic yet comfortable.

Cloches are love. Marc Jacobs is god for putting them in his fall collection. The unwashed miscreants at my school traipse around Juicy Couture. They're all the same...

Take it from someone who knows: School will be a part of your past before you know it and the unwashed miscreants will be long, long ago, and far far away.

Of course, if you go the 9-to-5 route, you might be surrounded by a whole new breed of unwashed miscreants, but there are other routes to take if you're not interested in that one.

-- Says the professional artist, who graduated high school in 90s, and swears it feels like it was yesterday, but knows it wasn't. ;)

(And if it makes you feel better, wear whta you want to wear, because what your classmates think of your clothes really and truly won't matter in the long run -- I still cringe at some of the things I wore back then, BUT I'm proof that even people that dressed really bad when they were teenagers can go on to live full, semi-successful lives and survive just fine in the real world, despite their past fashion faux pas.)
