Trends, Tips, and Snippets

This Blog was created due to my obsession with list making and keeping all of the things I wanted to buy organized. Eventually there were just too many lists, so I decided to start this, a blog where I could keep all of my thoughts, ideas, and prospective shopping all in one place.

Style Spotter #25


Avaloi, both an English and Classical studies major, also seems to be minoring in style. This Umass Boston undergrad displays her interesting and offbeat taste wearing rolled J. Crew cargo pants, dark Jeffrey Campbell leather booties, and a dust orange chiffon blouse purchased from H&M.  Her accessories include the staple black ‘Le Pliage’ tote bag from Longchamp, a braided brown leather belt from gap, an array of colorful and classic bracelets from H&M and David Yurman, and her signature rings from stores such as Club Monaco, Anthropology, and Urban Outfitters. Pulling everything together nicely is a wrap headband from forever 21 with both a combined paisley and tribal print adding a quirky and totally cool appeal to her look.
            When it comes to shopping for her standout ensembles, Avaloi states she enjoys thrifting and going to resale shops like The Closet and Rescue on Newbury Street but also shopping at stores such as H&M, Banana Republic, French Connection, and American Apparel. She says “Basically if I see something I like I’ll buy it.”  When asked to describe her style Avaloi replies, “I never fit a mold. Everyday I’m something different. As a good friend once said to me, I’m a style chameleon.”  Looks like switching it up is the key to keeping her style both curious and intriguing.
