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 #32

Wearing one of our favorite winter to spring transitional looks (and pulling it off), Luisa Guzman shows off her legs without showing off too much skin in this temperamental March weather. The senior business major pairs black tights from Target with a pair of jean shorts purchased at The United Colors of Benetton. Guzman adds more layers to her look by wearing a navy t-shirt from American Apparel, worn under a hooded sweatshirt from H&M, underneath a black leather jacket from Urban Outfitters. Her accessories include a fun and bright yellow tote from Besimon, subtle black bejeweled flats by Van Zeeland, and a solid red pashmina scarf. Guzman describes her style as “urban, comfortable, and a little bit edgy.” She adds that she is a self-proclaimed “sale hunter,” saying she typically likes to shop wherever there is a sale. She gathers inspiration for her looks from magazines like Elle, Marie Claire, and Vogue and is looking forward to wearing “a lot of colors, dresses, and showing off a little skin” this spring.   

Style Spotter #31

Yuki Hayibara, a biology major in her senior year, displays her cute and interesting style by pairing a long white tie sweater with black H&M leggings, a dark fur circle scarf, along with gray Tory Burch suede loafers, and the Heart Collection hobo by Burberry. “[My style is] casual and simple. I like clean colors and lines,” said Hayibara. Hayibara likes to shop at places around Back Bay including H&M and Club Monaco.  She explained, “I don’t read magazines. I simply just go to stores. I also observe what other people are wearing.” She likes “simple things and wearing what makes [her] feel confident.” She says about fashion, “It’s not fashionable if it doesn’t fit you or your personality.” Fashion advice to live by.

Limited Edition Vogue Beach Towel

Whilst flipping through pages of Vogue's March 2012 issue, I came across an advertisement for a limited edition Vogue beach towel sold at the Conde Nast (Vogue's publisher's) website. The towel is large and oversized (120x 180 cm) with a vibrant red border, bold white letters spelling out "Vogue" in the top center, and features Eduardo Garcia Benito's illustration of a flapper which graced the July 15, 1926 edition of the magazine. This art deco beach towel seems like it would be a must have item for Summer 2012- that is until you look at the price tag...
