Pictures of my outfit from yesterday. Special thanks to Kristin, my photographer.
Ok, I got no feedback on my last blog so I am just going to assume that everyone thinks my idea is so amazing that it causes speechlessness (or temporary paralysis of the hands). I’m actually really excited about it. I spent a little time browsing the internet for website and blogs claiming to be about college fashion and I didn’t like anything I came across. What I want to do is a more personal blog based on created content. As in, most blogs I looked at were consumed with “How To Dress Like A Celebrity” and where to get to clothes to create a certain look. Rowan is actually a really great resource for examples of fashion on campus. Just today I saw at least three people who stood out style-wise. This one girl had the most amazing furry hat with ears, I wish I had my camera/I hope she wears it again and I get a chance to photograph her. In essence, I’m attempting to create a blog that is interesting because it is mostly stuff that people have never seen before. I personally tend to brush off re-hashings of ”Five Ways to Wear a Black Dress” and “How to Get Beach Hair.” It’s so much more interesting to actually go out and see what people are doing to draw inspiration from. The being said, here are some pictures of me (lol):
I don’t typically find anything especially interesting about men’s fashion shows. There are only so many ways you can cut a suit. That being said, the photos from Junya Watanbe’s Paris show have shown me that designers can still create innovative and classic menswear.

My absolute favorite pieces are the sweater printed blazers, genius! With how much I love sweater prints, it amazing I didn’t think of it myself. We’ll I guess that is why some of us are professionals and others are simple admirers. Enjoy, hipikats!
I’m taking an online journalism class in school this semester. We have to choose a “beat” to blog about, which means a specific subject or location. I’m thinking about going with something like “Fashion on Campus.” My blog would be all about exploring the fashion choices of girls and guys on campus, asking people their opinions of appropriate dress for going to class, showing college kids how to look nice and also remain comfortable with spending too much money. What do you think?
I’m a big fan of multimedia so I will be including as many photos, audio interviews and on-camera interviews as possible. Take a look at this great video from the Washington Post ( I wish I could do something this good!).
You knew it had to happen one day, you just didn’t know when, right? …No, you have no idea what I’m talking about. Ok, I’m referencing my horrible excuse at a cheeky, remixed title. It’s so bad, it’s good.
First, I learned that Justin Beiber has a nail polish line and that it sold out in Walmart stores across the nation (also that his last name is NOT on spellcheck, go figure). No, I will not link to it, you have to suffer the humiliation of looking that up yourself.
More importantly, as was clearly demonstrated in the title, this post is about wedges. What can I say? I love them. (By the way, I know you’re all like “But Danielle what shoes DON’T you like? You’re like a total shoe nerd!” Well, there is a very simple answer to that question. I hate kitten heels, they make me want to barf…)
Admire these wonderful wedges:
(Sorry for the small pictures, I couldn’t copy anything larger.)
Something special about this wedge: It’s uncanny resemblance to the Snick Stud by Jeffery Campbell
Steve Madden might have done a rip off version as well:
On to more original shoes:
Not only do I love wedges for their alluring shape, but they’re typically very easy to walk in, which is important. That’s all for now, thanks for reading hipikats.
