Rules Are Meant To Be Broken

Alright, this is a one time thing. I am about to not only break a rule in general (oh the perks of being a goody-two-shoes), but one of my very own rules. Wearing sweats to class is something that happens to everyone at some point. It occurs on the days that we roll out of bed a little too late, or when the sun is not quite alive and awake yet, and even when we are feeling a bit under the weather or chilly. However, it is something that...

Indie Inspiration

As I stepped onto the rain-covered sidewalk of East Green, I tried my best to avoid the clusters of puddles embedded in the sidewalk grooves. I finally felt and saw my beloved Fall around me. I know what you are thinking, why does she keep talking about this silly season in every one of her posts? But I love Fall. There really is no rhyme or reason behind it, simply perfection. This brisk day consisted of complete gray skies, frequent winds, and a significant drop in the overall temperature....

Mary Jane Madness!

I think it is beyond safe to say that though it is officially the anticipated season of Fall, there is nothing about our ninety-two degree weather that illustrates such a thing. It is hot! Plain and simple. However, I braved the Athenian heat waves to search for a steal and deal of the week for any and all who care to read. Luckily, my efforts were rewarded with a pleasant surprise. Our item of the week for this supposed first week of Fall is located at a local shop...

Perfectly Prepared

Impressive. I can feel your fashion freakout from here in Athens. Maybe because I was experiencing the same thing myself a few hours ago? Another wardrobe crisis has arisen from the “lack” of clothing in your closet, drawers, and under your bed in some cases (no pointing fingers at those of us who brought too many things to college, please). You feel as if you have absolutely nothing to wear right at a time when it matters most. There is a speech or presentation that you must give in...

No Pants? Not A Chance

**DISCLAIMER** Alright you loyal followers, brace yourselves. This is an uncensored and completely genuine rant by yours truly. It is not meant to be entirely vicious or critical, though it may come across differently. It is not that I am here to judge, but if I said I never judged, I would also be a liar, along with having judgmental issues. At least this way I am not ignorant and I can focus on one flaw at a time. This is the first installment of my venting sessions and...

Gone With the Wind

The city of Athens was able to survive the tornado touches and managed to come out with little more than rain puddles and earthly remains. Leaves have fallen and taken their place on the ground all around us. In between the brief, yet brisk breezes of Fall, I was able to uncover lovely fashion that was not “gone with the wind.” Taylor Von Doersten, an Ohio University Freshman, struck me in the midst of my English class. Her personal style is revealed through a fabulous combination of multifaceted clothing...

Eco-Chic is Cheap!

The gray skies and frequent breezes indicate one thing to us collegiate students constantly walking about our campus: Fall is coming. The trends have been proclaimed and the shopping begins! Oh wait. We are in college. This can only mean one thing – a likely lack of financial freedom, and in my case a lack of shopping in our college town. However, there are some saving graces in the world of Athens. The Other Place is a quaint shop located on Court Street with a wide variety of fashion...

Don’t Forget the Basics

It is Monday morning. I know it is college and our schedules are far more flexible than the rigid routines of our beloved high school days, but there will never be a time when Monday is not terrible. Your alarm goes off at whatever time before your first class. We can go ahead and assume that you will hit the snooze button one time, at least that is what I often do when I hear that dreadful noise signaling the day is beginning. But I ask of you, friends...

It’s Friday Night, Yet Nothing to Wear

As the heat begins to fade away, and the autumnal air starts to rear its cruel head into the nights of Athens, that does not mean your outfits have to lose their summer sizzle! Let’s be blunt: when the sun goes down, the weather takes a complete turn for the worse at certain times of the year. It becomes absolutely freezing to us girls who are still trying to squeeze in our final summer outfits before it is too late. However, I am here to tell you to take...
