- Dress, Hong Kong boutique.
- Quilted Jacket, Zara (and yes you guessed it, the boys' section).
- Boots, Hunters.
This is what I wore on my first day of class. A lot of student bloggers are posting their "first day of school" outfits, which I have to say is so cute to see, just because preparing for the first day is such an important ritual when you were a little kid, except now of course there's no mommy or daddy around to help you. Also what is interesting to see is how much effort people put into their dress in at least the first few weeks of school. I believe we have it better here in liberal arts colleges as opposed to big state universities, in that most will avoid the eventual whole pajamas plus uggs combination, but here people too falter as they settle into a uniform. Now that I've finally finished this essay on Achilles in Homer's Iliad (so great a warrior yet so tragically doomed!), I can get back into replying comments and will duly follow up with some personal observations + thoughts on NYFW :)
