INSPIRATION: PREP SCHOOL
My highschool had the ugliest school uniform ever, it was maroon and green and involved tartan. It made us look like Christmas trees and not Christmassy in good way, not in the way Brad Pitt says to Angelina Jolie in Mr. and Mrs. Smith where he’s reminiscing the first time he saw her and she reminded him of Christmas morning. Not like that.
Anyway, once we got to Year 12 though, we were allowed to wear casual dress which was like FREEDOMMMMM! Funnily enough, I ended up not straying too far from the schoolgirl look and still rocked the pleated skirt, prim buttoned up shirt look well until I graduated and it was all because of one little television show.
Gossip Girl. The show that had women of all ages scouring their wardrobes for the headbands they once wore as a girl! Who knew five years ago (Yes! It’s been that long!) that that a teen drama would spark such a fashion craze. Yup, thanks to Blair Waldorf the prim and proper look had a revival noone saw coming and is now here to stay!
For some ladylike inspiration, check out a couple of our favourite Melbournian bloggers KisforKani and LeBlogdeSushi, who pair cute flouncy skirts, bows and peter pan collared blouses like it ain’t no thang.
We have a couple sweet pieces in store this week to have you reminiscing about skipping class and writing names of crushes on your binders :P
- Baby blue ascot blouse
- Cream double breasted coat
- Pastel blue princess coat
