Amazing Lace


Today, it was a high of 23 degrees Farenheight and the campus was swarming with people all bundled up. I don't blame them- I was freeeezing, too. Miss Michelle, however, whom I know through my Fashion Industries class, was wearing this lovely ensemble. I loved her lace theme- the tights and the cardigan. "I got the lace tights from Urban Outfitters," she told me, "I actually got them on sale- 2/$5!" A good enough steal to say that she's the thief of my heart.

Cooling Trend

Sorry for the sparse updates. School, family time, and life in general has been time consuming. Also, the cold weather has not been conducive to looking very chic.

Anyway, enough excuses. I still managed to spot some stylish people.

I went home for Thanksgiving break and on one day (they all blur together), my mom and I went to the ARC. I wasn't expecting to find anyone who I'd like to take a picture of, but luckily I brought my camera because Jamie was there. My favorite part is her flats.

Erica was kind enough to let me take her picture in the middle of her lunch. What caught my eye was her little overcoat. Since I didn't want to take up her time, I opted against documenting more details. I especially wish that I had snapped her earrings- they looked like dream catchers.

Colorado State University

Meet Robert. What's that he's holding?


It's a coin purse! ...How cool is that? He told me that he likes it because his change doesn't make a whole bunch of noise every time he takes a step. I was hoping I could get my hands on one of those, because 1) I always have loose change jangling around my bags and 2) it's very dapper. It's really too bad for me because Robert said that the coin purse was once his grandfather's.

I didn't really get to talk with Elena for long because she had to get to her horticulture class. My favorite part of her outfit was how she paired that green tweed coat (impressive since I'm not a big fan of tweed usually) with the vintage dress. I asked her where she got it and she told me she borrowed it from her roommate- lucky gal.


When I asked Alexis to describe her style to me, she told me that she loves color. No lie: I love everything from the cheery Anthropologie coat to her cobalt shirt and paisley LeSportSac backpack.

Land, Ho!

Colorado isn't the first place you think of when you hear "fashion capital."

I've been living in this beautiful, landlocked state for about nine years, and while most of its inhabitants (I am shamefacedly admitting that I do this too) sloppily don sweatshirts, flip-flops, and the cliche designer handbag, I believe style isn't quarantined in places like NYC or Paris.

This blog is an experiment. I want to prove to you- yes you!- that humble Colorado does have style. How, you ask? I will be featuring Coloradans in style a la Facehunter, Broad&Market, and The Beehive State. I'll also be conducting mini-challenges for myself (ie. only allowing myself to wear shoes with height for a week- God knows I need to wear heels more).

Anyway, I hope you stick around to see the evidence for yourself. Thanks for coming!
