According to WikiHow:
Prep is someone who cares about their appearance enough to look good — but not so much that they are superficial. They are clean cut, conservative, classy and classical.
Conservative, I am not. Classy, maybe on Sundays (MAYBE). Classical… well, I like Canon in D.
But let’s face it: since these girls and boys invaded our television sets, prep has once again made its way in the scene (though I believe I am featuring it here far too late).
So once again, I’ve consulted the fashion minds of Chictopia and some from Pinterest. I swear these two sites are soooo counterproductive but aaaargh. It’s addicting. Who wouldn’t be inspired with these?! Really?!
I wonder when in the world will I ever be able to pull this off. I know school girl doesn’t really scream “take me seriously, I know my job very well” but it’s just so chic and simple. I have a number of meetings coming up and I guess in my head, I dress too appropriately for these things that sometimes, well, I just want to be against the rules.
It wouldn’t really hurt to dream right? :)
