i have been told by several people my own age that i dress like a teacher. because the people who said this are my friends and not my enemies, i take that as a compliment. just for the record i do not own any themed plastic earings or holiday sweaters.
a student of mine walked in this morning wearing a blue scarf that looks as though it's made completely of glitter and sequins and says,
"i bought this scarf to look like you. you have style."
