it's a lie when people say school only educates them academically, or at least for me, because when you're in a secondary school with more than 400 people, there's more to look at than what's in your textbook.
take fashion for example. of the many years i've been in an international school, where people can actually afford to buy LV bags and jimmy choos as they please, it's taught me a lot; like, money can buy you friends (but won't guarantee to last) or people sacrifice their preferences to what's popular. or the most important thing i've learnt, is that you can have all the money in the world, and still not - blatantly - good / fashionable / "bananas" (i love rachel zoe, just to put it out there).
money is an entity, and style is a skill. similarly, someone may have a wide range of vocabulary but not know how to write, or someone might be really good at photoshop and not know how to edit, or someone might look model material, but can't actually model (quite like that girl from this antm season, i forgot her name)
"fashion fades, only style remains the same."
