Back To School / Work Shopping: The Initial Purchases – Part One

September always reminds me of back to school shopping even though I’m no longer a student, I am a teacher.  Before my mom passed away she took me clothes shopping every year when I was a student (1972 – 2007 with a short break in there of 3 years) and when I became a teacher.

I looked forward to it every year and cried like a baby the first few years after she was gone.  I still get melancholy to date.  Maybe that’s why I use my credit cards as weapons, never able to get the safety back on.

Here are some things that made it into my Fall 2010 Collection:
