I had a beautiful day today. This Comme des Garcons top arrived in the mail and I was overwhelmed by how simple the design is but how it still maintains some aspect of individuality. I bought it from a girl in Melbourne via a Facebook group of all things and had to wear it right away. It's my first piece designed by Rei Kawakubo- which seems surprising even to me since I have written many blog posts about her collections and meticulously cut out mini models from her runway shows for my journal.
It was a bit difficult to show off the main feature of this top, hence the very frumpy looking plaid skirt which was actually part of my school uniform in high school.
This time last year I was preparing to enter the second semester of my second year at university and was still taking fairly mediocre photographs for my blog. In the space of a year I felt I've really grown, my style is still is continuing to evolve but this may well be my last semester at university. In a month or two I will be applying for honors, the 'holy shit' moment of my life when I realise everything I've come to know will come to an end and a whole new chapter will begin. And I am equally terrified and excited to see what the future will bring. This is (hopefully) the last 'first day of school' outfit I will post.
