Ps. I also want to express secular thanks to fate or whatever that I'm continuing to live at home this year so don't have to attempt to squeeze all my clothes into a tiny uni room - or, even worse, decide what to take and what to leave behind until Christmas!

Interlude - These clothes were made for talking
After the first day of my freshers week, I realised that my simple outfit (disco pants and denim jacket, which is basically my go-to, all-purpose, appropriate-for-anything outfit) wasn't portraying what I think of as my "style personality" as well as, for example, this outfit would have. Yes, plain and easy clothes are sometimes part of my style, but in social situations with lots of strangers where I'm not very confident, I find that wearing something more exuberant can give me more confidence. Think of it this way: it'd be pretty hard to be a wallflower wearing a Gaga-esque costume. "Fake it 'til you make it" and all that. Plus, wearing unusual clothing is a great conversation starter so: hit me up freshers, if you see me around, feel free to start a conversation by telling me exactly what you think of my odd is-it-a-dress-is-it-a-top-is-it-a-sheet. :)
