Checked prints, oversized topcoats and wool trousers are all evocative of this season's reimagination of menswear-inspired fashion.

Classic trousers styled with a chic, feminine feel.
In elementary school, before I discovered my love for fashion, art, and sports, I was a complete bookworm. I would read my Baby-sitters Club novels during the day, and hide under my covers to read the R.L. Stine Goosebumps series after my bedtime.

Since my first pair of glasses in the second grade, I've only had four different frames: a Harry Potteresque version, a slightly cooler one, and two basic black frames. Why? Designer and even relatively stylish frames are outrageously expensive, even before the additional cost of lens prescriptions.
