When I was in 5th and 6th grades, all the coolest girls in my class dressed preppy.  V-neck sweaters, tartan plaid, Gap jeans…  “Mom,” I said, “I think I want to start dressing preppy.”

A few hours later, we sat down to watch America’s Funniest People, the awful spinoff to America’s Funniest Home Videos, the awful spinoff to Full House.  “Ooh I LOVVVEE her dress,” I gushed about the skin tight, off the shoulder minidress that Dave Coulier’s co-host was wearing.  Did I mention it was printed with multi-colour dollar bills?

Why I was taking fashion cues from an obvious fashion victim, I’ll never know.  But my instincts were right on.  Cause still to this day, I have problems pulling off American sportswear.  This is my ode to Michael Kors’s Fall 2010 Ready-to-WearDanielle Meder’s is much, much more compelling.  Thanks anyway, Bazaar, but I think I’ll sit out this trend.
