It's honestly a shopper's paradise-- thank God I didn't go to Georgetown University. M Street had mostly every store my outdoor shopping mall at home has, but when I first laid eyes on the Ralph Lauren Rugby store, I think I had a minor heart attack.
My over-exaggerated, dramatic reaction went a little like this:
"WHAT? THIS PLACE EXISTS SOMEWHERE ELSE BESIDES THE INTERNET??! YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME, WE MUST GO INSIDE."
I don't think my friends were as excited as me. Needless to say, I was hooked on how unique the clothes were, and how different from normal Ralph Lauren clothing most of the items were. Sadly, I think I fell in love more with the men's line than the women's, which isn't too surprising. I've had this odd attraction to men's clothes since I started college-- not wearing it of course, but rather putting outfits together.
I guess I can blame it on the guys I hung around...sometimes they can be as fashion-conscious as women when trying to figure what to wear when we go out. And I'm not joking when I say they all suit-up in Polo button-downs and say it's "Ralph on Ralph on Ralph."
All three looks are great for the late summer months going into the fall.
Look 1: Navy & white striped sweater with white pants, the latter of the two should be worn on every occasion possible in the summer. :)
Look 2: Crewneck sweatshirt paired with chino shorts and a red, lightweight jacket.
Look 3: Forget about the sleeveless sweater vest (those went out of style after Jim Tressel left OSU), but you can never go wrong with nantucket reds!
