This was essentially what I wore on one of the ~first days~ of school. Now I'm an upperclassman, so in a "Dazed and Confused" fashion I proceeded to haze a bunch of freshman by dressing them up as babies and putting them in the back of my pick-up truck that I apparently own now. In reality I set up an Alt Squad booth and crushed the dreams of many an angsty 14 year-old because I AM A COLD HEARTLESS BITCH. Also kidding.
Basically, I went to school and it was pretty boring because now I'm incredibly wise and therefore jaded by back to school hype. I decided to wear this dress for a couple of reasons. Mainly to sort of make fun of how fetishized teenagers are.It's like the media constantly tries to create this idea that High School is supposed to be the best years of our lives. I can't help but think this is total meshuggah. Not to sound angsty but I can't really relate to this interpretation. I'm overally realistic about a lot of things. I am fully aware that if I peak before my 20's there is something seriously wrong with me. To quote John Greene: I'm still searching for the "Great Perhaps" so for the time being I need to suck it up and go on with my MOODY AND ANGSTY LIFE.
Anyways, I picked this dress because it reminded me a lot of Velma from Scooby Doo and also because on the sides are incredibly revealing slits. This dress pretty much combines youth (the prints and the overall color scheme) and a more risky cut (very defined slits and the figure it creates). To add to it I added my "classy loafers" because they're classy and remind me of school girls (adding to the youth vibe).
High School is really a funny little beast. I can't really say "this is going to be my year" because it really isn't. I can say however, I don't think it will be bad at all
