The First Day of School; What Did You Wear?

It was, and probably is, still a big deal.

Come the end of August, the air gets crisper. Students find out which teachers they're going to have. Vacations come to end, and reading lists must be completed.

For those long distant from those days, the "back to school" feeling still can come back to the mind as quickly as the leaves fall from the trees. It only takes a smell, a breeze or the sight of a bus.

One of the sharpest memories of heading back to school is certainly the memory of waiting for the bus in your first day of school outfit.

After school shopping was done, how long did you debate on what to wear? Was it fashionable enough? What were your friends going to wear? Did you pick it out? Or did your mother choose your outfits?

And most importantly, where are your pics of the first day of school?

Patch editors are loading theirs (some begrudgingly), and we want to see yours.

I'll have to dig up some old photos, but my favorite back to school item was this blue pair of Reeboks when I was in middle-school in the mid-80's (here's a pic: http://retrobok.wordpress.com/2011/07/27/bb-series-originals-detailed-at-sole-collector-forum/). I loved those shoes - I called them my "cool Reeboks." I remember my cousin paid $60 for his at the Reebok store and I got mine for $30 at Marshall's. I know - it's a goofy thing to be proud of :)
