Shopaholics Anonymous? Anyone?

Hi, my name is Bentley and I am a shopaholic. Please, hold your gasps. This may be a common problem among women, however, it becomes an issue when you are placed in a time of life where frugality is key. Regardless of your income level, shopping is something that should always be put last on the priority list. Should is the operative word in that sentence, by the way. One should allot their money wisely and save up as much as they can to plan for the future. Those...

If Tights Could Talk…

Thea Erwin is an Athens native and effortless fashionista in her first year at OU. The terms “typical” or “conventional” are two words that could not possibly fit into the fashion description of Thea. She possesses the perfect amount of unique fashion tendencies, combined with practicality and relevance. She has truly mastered not only “Athenian” fashion, but her personal style as well. I buy what I like and what flatters me, I don’t really follow trends. Dress: Urban Outfitters Shirt: Artifacts Tights: The Other Place Shoes: New-To-You (an Athens...

Forever Fashionized

Athens is fortunate enough to reside in a location that is a weather bubble of sorts in comparison to the rest of Ohio. It seems we have been able to avoid the insufferable conditions everyone else is having to experience. However, someone must have spoken too soon, for today was a different story with some inclement conditions. It is hard to justify complaining about rain when you know everyone else in this lovely middle state is battling ice and snow.However, it was easy for me to still find the...

Flexible Fashion

Photography by Rebecca Ciprus In the midst of the finals frenzy at Ohio University, Michael Maurer, a freshman majoring in Commercial Photography, remained at ease with his effortless ensemble. The day appeared comfortable on it’s exterior, but the blustery wind proved otherwise. Despite this, Michael managed to attain warmth and maintain his fashion with a perfectly styled city-outfit in Athens. Yes, I have always cared about my appearance, but not to be the center of attention. I do enjoy compliments on my outfits or fleeting glances of admiration.” -Michael...

Fashion Alley

Photography by Rebecca Ciprus The lack of classes for Ohio University students has the ability to bring about one of two appearance options: laziness or loveliness. Kylie Whittaker, a sophomore majoring in Public Relations who hopes to one day start her own PR firm in NYC, opted for the better choice. Her Ray-Ban sunglasses were able to shield the prominent Athens sun, which left plenty of room her personal style to shine through a seemingly typical Thursday afternoon. The thing I particularly loved about Kylie’s ensemble choice was that...

Chic and You-Nique

Photography by: Rebecca Ciprus I would love for people to look at me and think ‘That style is so Brooke!’ Not ‘That looks like someone else.’” -Brooke Bunce There is something comforting and ever so marvelous when you are standing in a roomful of fashionistas. No trashy ensembles or “sluttiness” (excuse the vulgarity of the word, but how can one say such a thing delicately?). The proper pieces for the occasion and season all in place. It is difficult to not people-watch as each person enters the Haute Mess...

A Little Something We Call Halloween

I apologize for my virtual negligence. Sometimes life is uncontrollable in that sense, as is the week of Halloween in Athens. The festivities seem to begin at least a week prior to the actual holiday and annual block party. Whether it is over half of the student population playing “humans v. zombies” throughout campus (I do not appreciate being held to nerf-gun point by the way), little children trick-or-treating up and down Court Street at local businesses, or the Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Union, anyone walking around...

Cherry Blossom Saturdays

A lazy and seemingly empty Saturday in Athens allows one to expect bleak wardrobes accompanied with the gray skies and dead leaves. However, Rebecca Ciprus, Ohio University’s modern day pinup girl who is majoring in Commercial Photography, proved my assumptions incorrect. I woke up in a good mood and wanted to show it through my outfit.” -Rebecca Ciprus “I woke up in a good mood and wanted to show it through my outfit,” said Rebecca. Well, it worked! Her outfit is a lovely display of unique fashion. She shows...

Clothing Kudos

Today is a day to be acknowledged. It is the kind of day when the weather is comfortable enough to wear the outfits you have been anticipating, without a jacket or some type of suffering. The sun is beaming through the fluffy white clouds and contrasting blue skies of Athens. While the wind is blustering at the perfect rate, I cannot help but simply smile. Yet all I really notice is fashion, fashion everywhere! Fashion truly is contingent upon the weather, which is why I always like to mention...

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....
