I have a number of friends whose kids started school for the first time this year. It's been impossible not to get caught up in the excitement and emotion of the time.
And it got me thinking.
All uniforms are not equal. Are they?
I saw the above picture of Elle MacPherson with her adorable son recently and it occurred to me that I could totally see myself choosing a school based on the uber-cuteness of the uniform.
I know, I know, that's shallow in the extreme. But hello? Look at this kid! Look at that little cap angled just so, sitting all jaunty as hell atop his little noggin! The blazer haphazardly draped over an arm. And the socks. Oh my goodness, those stripey socks! Little red tie? I die.
This is a uniform to be admired.
Whether I can pony up the fees required to send my kids to a school of this uniform-wearing calibre remains to be seen.
But I am now officially on the hunt for a school that offers similar uniform awesomeness.
