5th Grade

F21 silk blouse and shorts, Calvin Klein sheer hosiery, Steve Madden boots, F21 necklace

As I was assembling this outfit for a night on the town, it occurred to me that I used to wear something quite similar back in elementary school.  5th grade to be exact.  Black tights underneath denim shorts, shirt tucked in, with black boots.  Well the boots I wore in 1992 weren't over-the-knee with stilleto heels, but same concept.  

I know fashion tends to recycle, but it never really occurred to me that something I actually used to wear would arise again so soon.  Pretty amusing!

On a related note, I went out [clubbing] with 2 of my aunts that night - aged 39 and 41.  A week or so earlier, they had seen me in my "boyfriend jeans" and they pointed out that they used to wear the exact same thing in college.  I noted that they should wear them again, but this time, with 4in+ platforms.
