Sometimes all it takes to catch someone’s eye is a unique item of clothing. A long time ago, it was a known fact that you went to class dressed up because it was a privilege to go to school. That’s just how it was. Now, however, our generation has a predetermined misconception that in order to be comfortable we have to dress sloppily. This Fashionista thinks otherwise.
