Because school is yes slowly creeping itself around the corner, who wouldn't say no to a little "back-to-school shopping"? So that's what I did. Though I'd have to congratulate myself for not going ham at the mall. For me, back-to-school shopping is popping down to the border to visit the states and hit up the buffalo malls. However this time around I didn't find much that intrigued me except for when I got to H&M. For some reason, although H&M's regular priced items can get pretty steep pretty darn fast, theirs sales are incredibly affordable! The geometric print shorts I'm wearing costed me a good $7. Now that's a bang for you bucks. It also makes we wonder the actual manufacturing cost of clothing compared to retail. Company's must be earning and generous profit.
Usually I'd tell people that I'm a hardcore Forever21 fan (do not get me wrong I still love their pieces) but now a days I feel as if Forever21 prices are going up, up and away. H&M on the other hand, although they have very expensive prices, their sales are still the best in my opinion and the quality is better. I mean if you could really see these shorts in person you'd have thought I paid $50 for these, which I would have had to if not for the sale ;)
I seriously cannot wait to wear these to school in the fall/winter seasons. Paring these with solid black tights and a cozy sweater...mmmm. Now that's what I'm taking about.
I guess the one good thing about going back to school is the sudden rush of fashion inspiration I always seem to get. I'll be going into grade 10 this school year and hope that it'll be a good one. Good teachers, good classes, good people, good grades, good times.
I start September 8th but I know others may start earlier. When's your first day of school?
