I did it. I watched "Clannad". Now, that probably doesn't sound particularly interesting or difficult to most people, so I'll explain why it took me as long as it did. I had heard that Clannad (especially "After Story") was a great, wonderful, sad, heartwrenching, uplifting show. All. Over. The internet. Still, I resisted any (i.e. all) urges to watch it because I was put off by the artwork. "Don't judge a book by its cover", they say. Well, they don't understand how distracting artwork can be when you're watching an animated series. The artwork in Clannad isn't bad, but I generally prefer less stylized anime. Secondly, I tend to watch one-shots. These shows generally last around 12 episodes, and the plot moves very quickly. For me, Clannad and After Story made for a very, very, very slow show. But hey, if I didn't like it, I wouldn't be posting about it, right? Clannad was as good as they say. So, as a result, here's a quick and easy "Fashion Friday", Clannad style.
This outfit has only four parts, and each of the elements are under $30. Jumper skirts aren't very popular in America, so I went with a skater skirt instead. The accented collar on the shirt helps mimic the sailor fuku style. Brown oxfords and a yellow blazer finish it off.
