At the UGL pt. III

Unable to resist the allure of his tailored vest and sleek Clarks, I badgered Kevin in the midst of his authoritative voicemail.

Salad Bar Boyz

Scott's baby blue Vans are too new and clean to have any street cred, but I kind of want them to stay that way forever.

Sunshine style

Nothing makes our hearts swoon like a sharply dressed couple (even moreso if they are by the Eternal Flame.)

Mouse flats, 20s hair, flower buttons - it's all about the (adorable) details.

At the UGL, squared.

University of Illinois' answer to Kid Sister and A-Trak.

girls gone styled

Earlier the other night, making my weekend trip to rentertainment, I saw tons of the usual Green Street girls, flashing butt cheeks, sobbing into their cell phones about how their boyfriends cheated on them while their inadvertently exposed breasts flapped in the evening breeze. Obviously it was refreshing (and creepy on my part, I suppose) to catch these ladies in the stairwell at 3am, still looking classy after a long night of swing dancing. dreamy.

Tara's corseted dress made our bosoms heave with delight. She said she couldn't breath in it but always remember- it's not about how you feel, its about how you look.

So many elements of this outfit are fusing together like alchemy where the final product is GOLD, ben, GOLD. Boys, wear pennyloafers, short sleeved button ups, skinny ties, and cropped pants allday errday.

LOOK AT ME/dont look at me.

The other day, Paulina and I were scampering about in our Lanvin blouses (Paulina was also wearing high-waisted Escada slacks) and we happened to run into our good friend- DJ/postermaker/blogger/marketing major/musician- Justin. And then he interviewed us for his 217 blog, Live Transmission...

JUST KIDDING GUYS. Paulina has like 4 classes with Justin and we eat dinner with him every night. We planned a photoshoot involving his DSLR and about 600 different poses on our part. And then Justin emailed us interview questions and we each spent 40 minutes carefully constructing witty quips to make ourselves look like the most charming girls in all the land.

However, I used the phrase "fashion forward" twice and I am squinting in all my pics because I had previously stabbed myself in the eye with a mascara wand, so it failed anyway.

here's Paulina's take on it: I was almost unable to type this because my praying mantis hands are so enormous and beef-like.

anyway here's the link- check it out!!!

I feel the earth! Move! Under my feet!

She should model for cell phone ads.

And, a snippet from Religious Studies discussion:

TA: Oh, are you in a play?
Me [dressed like a hybrid of Sailor Moon and Talbots '02]: Wha?
TA: Your outfit. It is so... special today.

Paulina and I aggressively chased Min on the quad but she was too busy lookin like a rock star to notice us. Until we wrestled her to the ground. Happy Friday.

At the UGL

The second after I snapped this, the sun disappeared. Fact*: the earth revolves around street style.
