You have got to be kidding me

This charming website has provided me with the best quote ever about what is wrong with those darn kids these days.

On up-and-coming Style Stars:

Jane is one of the few high schoolers we know who isn't afraid to mix the super high (as in Balenciaga) with independent labels like Wood Wood, Quail, and Catherine Holstein. We're loving her recent foray into jumpsuits, floppy brimmed hats, and Annie Hall-worthy sunglasses.

What a f-ing rebel we've got here. I must have been such a milquetoast with no style in high school because I WASN'T CLEVERLY MIXING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF COUTURE IN WITH MY EVERYDAY STYLE. I was wearing stuff I wasn't scared to get peanut butter on.

These people are aliens.

WTF? I hate how whoever wrote that writes as if it's normal. As if every high schooler has these items of clothes and she's special because of how she wears them.

"isn't afraid to mix the super high (as in Balenciaga) with independent labels"...

Yeah, the bravery is palpable.

I know, it's like some sort of sick joke.

I'm with you there. Though I was a bit different in school in that my mother made me Vogue Designer patterns to wear, but it was mostly because I couldn't afford the store brand name stuff everyone else was wearing. So I rocked names they didn't know or care about like Issey Miyake.
