faith represent homie and wear dem sweats you'll be surprised especially at a place like UVA....i know i will if i go and i'm going to a school just as preppy but a third of the size which makes it worse.....i'll just wear some perals to even even it out  ;)

come on lex, you know i'm with you on being somewhat of a bum. i love jeans and t-shirts. i think that wearing sweat pants to class would be the norm if I wasn't going to such a preppy school. but we'll see, they might just get to see my sweatpants. :D

people like to show off... we focus a lot on the material things these days... let me get my JD so i can get that mercedes or that bmw... let me have the hottest condo in manhattan or dc...

we're known to live beyond our means and when we don't have the money we dream about the days that we do...

same hood rich mentality that cash money clique has  :D

---

there's nothing wrong with dressing well or dressing comfortable.. if you like it i love it either way... but the universal problem is that we label people based on their physical appearance, hair styles, choice of clothing..

we're all guilty of it.. (including me ;) )

yeah i can't do the juicy stuff, i'm already prepping for my "soccer mom" status I can't stay away from ann taylor, j. crew, banana, or talbots (yeah i know)....and i'm a sucker for any ralph lauren oxford out....i dream about new shiney loafers to wear to the club....hehehe

edit: i can't believe i just wrote that, yeah i'm a dork, but a classy one none the less

especially today, it's crazy...

i usually get my ralph lauren stuff at outlets/filene's basement/loehmans b/c i'm not going to pay 80 bucks for an oxford or 60-75 for a polo and ever since this "preppy craze" came in style the bargain places have jacked up their prices, i almost fell out the last time i was at woodbury commons

yeahhhhh blk, talbot's outlet is the bomb i got a great toggle coat a couple of years ago from there

yeah blk--i think that is the biggest problem. how can we look at someone and have something to say about how they dress. I am definitely guilty of it. there was a girl that had on a shirt that said single and fabulous this weekend and I was like, wow. I know I judged her the moment I saw her just on the basis of her shirt.
