Glory Days

Everyone's been raving over Alexander Wang's S/S 10 Americana & high school football inspired collection (the leather, shoulder pads, and those amazing braids)! If it's been a while since you've graduated from high school and you have no quarterback boyfriend to borrow clothes from, no worries.. you can customize your own varsity jacket! They kind of remind me of Happy Days but I think it could be an updated look with skinny jeans and black ankle boots!

I'm heading back to my old high school next weekend to escort my little sis in the homecoming court parade and football game (wearing my '07 homecoming queen sash no less). I'm definitely glad I've moved on and graduated, but it's fun to look back on all the traditions of high school as an alumni.. and sport your school colors at the homecoming football game.

Would you ever wear a varsity jacket?

xoxo, lauren

P.S. Congrats to Jacqueline @ Fashion Snag for winning the nuNAAT giveaway! Stay posted for a giveaway from chickdowntown coming SOON!

Didn't have that kind of stuff where I grew up... I would probably have been a bad cheerleader, so I think that was for the best! :)

I love it....if I could get my hands on my husband's, I would wear it all the time!

Jacqueline said...

We had it, but I never got any of it. I didn't have a lot of school pride. haha. Would definitely wear a vintage looking one for fun though!

I love Wang, but I am not sure I would ever wear the jacket!! I just can't go back to that! :)

Damn! I wish I'd seen this post a few weeks earlier b/c there was this super cute pink satin varsity jacket at H&M for $15 I was pondering!

I have a "letter jacket" from my University - it's part of the tradition here, you don't have to be varsity to have one! I have to admit I don't wear it much (our school colours are just disgusting!) but I do enjoy having it for homecoming and other spirit events!

Also, love the new design!

I'm so glad you highlighted this theme because it's kind of different. I was so interested to see American Football, of all things, as a large theme in collections this year.

J'adore your new header, Lauren; and your new layout. La Petite Fashionista looks great!

Congratulations Fashion Snag!

Oh, the Varsity Jacket. I've never been a fan of jocks, but I've always harbored fantasies of a cute boy giving me his Varsity Jacket to wear. So high school, I know; but alexander Wang has completely reawakened those dreams. I want one! :)

Well in high school I was more into soccer, meaning I went and watched the soccer games, the captain was my boyfriend, so he borrowed me the jacket and also some t shirts, they were very cool.
