I sensed a bit of ambivalence when I began shoving my clothes into bags as I prepared packing for university. While I was a little sad as I saw myself leaving home, I am incredibly excited for shopping Virginia. Let's face it: while I am going to be study most of the time, the small minuscule time I have for down time will be spent shopping, laughing, hanging out, and seeing people.
I am a pre-emptive shopper. I bring lists with me so I can look for exactly I want without distracting fabrics claiming my attention. While I am excited for acquire the college look, here a few items on my list that I must have to obtain the superlative Best Dressed.
1. a French-y cardigan
2. Nautical pieces of clothing (such as a sweater, pullovers, or cardigans)
3. a small satchel
5. polka dot dresses reminiscent of the '50s
6. a Rebecca Taylor jacket
7. Cat-eye sunglasses (a la Jackie O)
8. pair(s) of Miu Miu shoes
