    That made me lol!

    I like the top part of it (above waist) I like the asymmetrical neckline.
    I *hate* “plaid” *cough* or Tartan to the rest of the civilised world!!!
    I hate the pelplum and I hate the fringe it reminds my of a song in Oklahoma.

    I really like how she is to afraid to try new stuff she doesn’t (have to) dress like Pat Nixon or anything and obviously enjoys clothes. If she wants to be pregnant, I hope she is. Must suck having everything dissected...

    It reminds me of the pants we wore with our Catholic school uniform in grammar school during the winter.

    Unpopular I guess, but I love plaid. Maybe not this particular plaid, but others...I guess I am just fascinated with the thought process she uses in picking her outfits because they make no sense at all. It's either Pat Nixon or goofy sixth grader with her.

    I remember those. For some reason I can't remember, at some point, we had to wear ours under our uniform skirts. Ugh, that was horrible.

    I'm a big fan of plaid actually. But more subtle plaids.

    This is the jumper we wore and you wore the pants with it. They were bell bottoms and this was already the 80s and early 90s.

    My daughter's school jumper and kilt are much the same today at a non religious independant private school in CT. They are required to wear either shorts, leggings, tights or the uniform pants underneath. I personally love the whole uniform thing. It has made life much easier. No wardrobe drama. The biggest thing was certain girls trying to shorten it up to groin length. They changed the dress code to stipulate no more than 2" above the knee.

    A very expensive ensemble I'm sure, but I surprisingly like it on her. However, I live near a college town in Oregon so I have zero clues as to what's fashionable or not!

    Same! But it was a bit earlier for me and my plaid was this one (and in the earlier years we even wore those peter pan collars):

    Hon, there is fashionable, and then there is good taste, I’m sure you have the latter.

    i don't have a problem with uniforms, and i understand why parents would love them, it makes it cheaper for kids to go to school and you avoid a lot of the crap with kids feeling pressure to buy expensive brand name stuff. what i don't agree with is forcing girls to wear skirts and boys pants. there should be a uniform but everyone is free to choose skirts or pants

    We wore a jumper like in K-3 than 4-6 you went to to the one I posted. 7&8 was the skirt with a polyester vest. We always had Peter Pan collars, right thru HS.

    Both my grammar school and hs (all girls$ now allow the girls to wear navy slacks but only on winter months.

    I don't know how it is now, but in my experience, uniforms didn't really do anything to alleviate kids being pressured for expensive stuff, but my school was in a stuffy town to start with. It was the 80s so it was all about coats, shoes, and watches and even the name brand of the white shirts, the sweaters, etc. It was easy to pick out at a glance who had money and who didn't and it wasn't just that you had one expensive pair of shoes, you had one pair of expensive shoes for every day of the week. But I think they're probably stricter about shoe styles now? I'm not sure.

    If I remember correctly, we wore the jumper from 1-5 and switched to pleated skirts with oxford button downs from 6-8. For the first few years, we wore forest green sweaters and knee socks and then switched to navy and that's the actual reason why I own almost no navy to this day because it reminds me of junior high. I love it on other people, though.

    The Catholic school I was supposed to go to for high school didn't have bus service for my area at the time so I ended up going to public school for that, but I think that plaid would have been red. Actually, I found a newish pic of their basketball team...they're dressed like it's 1888. I remember girls used to be allowed to show skin back in the day, but maybe it was just super cold out. And there's even another pic of my old school uniform.
