First off I must apologize that my scattered brain, procrastination, flaky disposition, and obsession with my bed got the best of me. The non-existent post from last week is totally my fault, but just forgive me. Everybody makes mistakes, everybody has those days (for real though).
But I promise I’m still livin’ and lovin’ as you should be too!
Please turn on Lily Allen’s sassy tirade against stereotypes and twerking immediately:
As can be expected at the end of a semester, my neurotic tendencies have reached a new peak. The only person who talks to herself more than I do, especially when writing paper after paper, is my personal hero Carrie Bradshaw. No, I won’t ever stop name-dropping good ‘ole SJP; she’s an idol to us mere mortals.
Yes I am blabbering, I admit it! So to derail that train, I’m ready to divulge some fashion blather. As one could’ve guessed from the gorgeous picture above, women’s fashion is on the menu. So once again, ladies, this one is for you.
After perusing the latest issue of Vogue, I’ve learned one thing: fashion is eclectic and open to interpretation. That might not be news to any of those familiar with the glossy publications that steal my attention, but I feel the need to state it.
In the cold months it’s about bundling up, but hiding the real goods beneath the layers. Even in these desperately chilly times, one can wear an amazing high-lo skirt, backless dress, or sky-high stilettos. The one rule is to hide it beneath a gorgeous jacket paired with a thick scarf and glove set.
Once again it’s all about the patterns and prints hidden beneath the red pea coat or charcoal trench. Aided by some thicker leggings and you have a casual outfit ready for shenanigans regardless of the temperature. That will serve as my quick advice to not allow the chill to keep the fun out of your get up.
In true eclectic fashion, our Woman of the Week always has some fun in her get-up. She has some clothing to rival the most extensive wardrobes.
I humbly present the enthralling Gretchen Greenlee, a senior majoring in Organizational Communication with a specialization in fashion retail.
Given the freedom to dress herself at a tender young age, this woman has grown into a sense of style that encompasses many arenas. Describing herself as walking flower vomit or a goth princess, I personally can attest to her dabbling with black lipstick and drawn on unibrows. Never afraid to try the less obvious choice, Gretchen has a personal style with influences to spare.
Leaving the “weird” behind in the days of algebra homework and teenage angst, she has rocketed into an atmosphere of grungy elegance. With a self-described “all over the place” fashion sense, Gretchen is the same wild child as the tot rocking her jean dress and an uber-trendy pair of red rubber boots. Isn’t it weird that I always choose grunge-inspired people? Do I like that? Rhetorical question, no answer necessary.
With a mother enabling her most bizarre outfit choices, no one icon or fashion genre quite fits Gretchen’s open attitude in reference to trends. Aliens, outer space, and quippy phrases are commonly seen on this woman who has switched her hair approximately 3 times in the past couple months. Style is evolution and transition, and I think Gretchen understands that.
A quirky comedienne, this Snapchat lover is detail-oriented, motivated, and sillier than you could imagine. I seriously can’t handle the Snapchats coming from this intuitive spirit. In charge of Thread Magazine‘s coven of stylists, this fierce leader is a force of knowledge and creativity.
Crushing hard on a pair of platform sneakers covered in aliens, Gretchen’s fearless style presents a deep confidence to envy. Thanks in part to Cara Delevingne’s thick caterpillars, one of this woman’s favorite trends is the thick brow. Not only does it guarantee the sass Gretchen utilizes daily, but it also adds character. The recent obsession with dark lips is another of her favorite trends of the season.
A go getter in every sense, Gretchen foresees herself in a creatively fulfilling place in the future. Vague as it may be, isn’t fulfillment the craving we all attempt to sate or satisfy? Frequently cruising Nastygal and Topshop, she is always on the prowl for some fun and unique pieces to blow the general public away with.
This down-to-earth goth princess recommends black for the questioning mind, but indulges in every color and design under the rainbow. Without a doubt one of the friendliest and most stylish ladies to walk the sidewalks of Athens, Gretchen is a gem that understands the importance of staying true to yourself despite the aliens on your top.
I guarantee that I didn’t do this fabulous creature justice with my spiel of style and stuff, but hopefully she forgives me ;)
For another radically intriguing post narrated by the sassy and dim-witted wording of yours truly, please keep coming back!
