I know, I know hankering after all the hallmarks of September and that back to school feeling is a cliche. But it's a cliche for a reason and that synthetic smell of just-photocopied pages, the feeling of a chunky pen on a fresh page and new pencils can't be beaten. This novelty of newness goes hand in hand with new-season excitement in the wardrobe department which lives on long after school days. Even though I am no longer confined to a school uniform, I still see September as an opportunity to add some pieces to my very own personalised uniform. And of course, the perfect homage to That September Feeling has to be the school walk-through scene from Donnie Darko, one of my very favourite film scenes for the synchronised playground dancing, goodboy vs badboy, folders clutched to chests and Tears For Fears soundtrack.
