Summer is coming to an end... and that means SHOPPING.
Shopping, if done and spent well, can get very tiring, but in the end, one is happy with their productivity. If the consumer is happy, then the economy is happy (At least, that's what I tell my mum when trying to convince her to let me buy something expensive...). Hello! this is 2010, if shopping is the only thing keeping the economy booming, then I say... why the hell not? Not only is this time of year the second to Christmas in terms of spending $$, but it's one of the busiest. From last minute purchases, to the swipe of the card that you know you'll eventually have to pay, it's all in good fun... and debt.
The one thing that leaves me disappointed every year, is the lack of range and fashion sense that some teens have today. Watching shows like Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars really gets me excited about school fashion, but in the end, its all the same Abercrombie & Fitch tee-ripped jeans-converse kind of style. It's so hard to find someone who's not the perfect teenage stereotype. Seriously, if I could add anything to the walking billboard ways of highschool, it would be REAL FASHION.
|The skirts a little short for school rules... but who follows those anyway?|
|Although this is from a season one episode... I still think about Jenny Humphreys (Taylor Momsen) outfit. LOOK AT THAT JACKET.|
|Dream Highschool Sweetheart. Goodness, why do guys have to wear over sized t-shirts and fake Ed Hardy shirts.... "to look cool".|
|Would kill for the jacket Blair(Leighton Meester) is wearing.|
|ith the fashion that goes around in typical highschools... this would even be an improvement. I actually quite like the cardigan.|
|Spencer Hastings and Emily Fields... it would be rare to see anyone dressed like that at my high school. Sigh, I wish I went somewhere where people didn't over wear Uggs and Sweatpants like it was underwear.|
What do you wish you could wear/ or would've worn while you were in school? And what was popular when you were a teenager? Lets us know below!
P.S: You probably think I go to someschool with no fashion at all... Its rare to find, but there are a few people who actually dress out-of-the-box. Maybe we'll feature them sometime in a post.
