About Me

My photo
College Student. Sometimes dancer. Aspiring fashion journalist and everyday style enthusiast. I started my blog back in 2010 on a whim, and now it has grown into the visual representation of the power that I believe fashion can have. It's not about having clothes it's about what you do with them, what you wear says who you are. Fashion is transformative, and a chic bag or outfit puts a smile on my face as much as a good book on a rainy day. My blog is about dressing the undergrad and young professional, because so little markets cater to our style. You've officially been accepted into The Undergrad Style File.

Something a Little Nautical

Out and about, it was a little hot on this day. I needed an outfit that was breezy but still a little dressy for my brother's birthday dinner. So in the spirit of summer and the nautical trend that has been around for the past few seasons. Here's the rundown: blue and black, hi-low striped dress with cutouts along the neckline. I added a wide silver and black waist belt for visual interest.  I kept the rest of the outfit classically simple with pearl studs, and finished it off with silver bow flat sandals. The weather's getting hotter, so of course style has to elevate as well. Stay tuned.

You Want A "Peace" of Me

Four words. Really. Big. Peace. Sign. I think I became mesmerized with this architectural gem, located on University of Pennsylvania's campus, just outside of Center City. I enjoyed a warm Spring day, and tried this amazing authentic (they're hard to find), Chinese cuisine restaurant, called Beijing. I had the shrimp spring roll and the sesame chicken, and it made me glow as you can see, in the pic below. Outfit of the day? Here's the breakdown: I wanted something that could be adjusted to the warm weather, comfortable but still expressed my personal style. I paired a turquoise blazer with a sleeveless cream-colored, polka-dot print top. On the bottom were my tried-and-true skinny jeans, and black flats that feature a black satin, flat ribbon, and a kind of metal mesh exterior. I kept my accessories simple, classic pearls and a translucent white, beaded layered necklace. My statement piece of the day, was my color-blocked vintage purse, that features various shades of brown and caramel leathers, and at only 4$ it was a fierce deal and style steal.

Stay fierce ;),

It Don't Mean A Thing if it Ain't Got That Spring!

Three words. The Great Gatsby. First, the movie was a sight to behold with stunning visuals and a soundtrack that mixed modern music with 1920's jazz. Simply put it made me feel like a participant in a revamped Roaring 20's. So I donned a outfit that had an ease inspired by 1920's shift dresses and was perfect for an 80-degree Spring Day...and introducing Ashley Weekes, my fellow fashion-lover and film aficionado friend. Here's the rundown: my coral-striped confection of a dress, paired with the nude flats I pretty much have worn out because they look good with just about everything, my layered charm necklace and my coral and gold owl earrings. Topped off by my baby-blue nails, because if you're going to do color you might as well commit to it ;). Here's a breakdown of Ashley's outfit: a sheer purple, heart-printed sleeveless chiffon blouse, paired with simple denim jeans and black thong sandals. Simple enough for comfort but still captures the spirit of the season.  I'll end with this awesome quote from a Hipster Handbook at Urban Outfitter's..."If you aren't part of the now, then you're part of the not now-and that doesn't mean the future, as the future starts now, not yesterday, and you can't be there tomorrow if you're not here now."
