About Me

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.

These Are A Few of My Favorite Things: Dorm Room Re-do

As promised, here is the long awaited dorm room reveal, I don't have any before pictures. But think white cinderblock and brown tiled floors. Enough said. For some reason I leaned towards, black, white, and pink as my color scheme. Mostly because my comforter features these colors in a bold graphic, floral print. I wanted my room to have a boutique feel and serve as a visual homage to all things fashion and classic Hollywood.

Just A Little Charleston







The age of excess or the jazz age, however you refer to the 1920s, it was a time of bootleg liquor, gangsters and crooks, and wild girls who dared to have hemlines above the knee. Flappers were distinct for their bobbed hair, heavy makeup, wild dancing, and devil-may-care attitude. 

As an homage to the daring personas, I dressed as a flapper for a costume party, and the look was the bee's knees (insert 1920s slang here). It featured a black fringe dress for maximum movement as I did the Charleston of course. I had long black gloves, my quintessential strand of pearls, and a feather in my hair. The look was finished off my patterned fishnet tights, patent leather pumps, and my cigarette holder, it was fabulous darling.

Feeling A Little Grunge-y

 Hey undergrads and the stylish at heart. Today's look was my outfit for a dinner date with my mom. I chose this red and black plaid ( or tartan, if you're feeling fancy),fleece lined vest. In light of the 90s revival in fashion and pieces inspired by the grunge area, I had to snatch up this vest when I saw it at Burlington Coat Factory for $16.99. Take it in for a moment... As a self-admitted vintage/eclectic/preppy/girly/casual chic/ posh style lover I do have a slight fascination with the grunge era. For those of you who are unfamiliar the grunge era, this period of fashion during the 1990s, was the brainchild of those who followed the grunge style of music, think Nirvana. It was a style of necessity and stylish "carelessness"; it was all Doc Martens, and plaid flannels. The look screamed "I don't care about fashion" which of course made it a haphazard fashion trend.

Underneath, I'm wearing a black, pleated chiffon blouse, that is at least two sizes too big, so I cinched it with a big black and silver waist belt. I paired it with dark rinse skinnies and my favorite cognac colored ankle booties. I felt like the look screamed fall. How do you feel about grunge? Mad for plaid? Tell me all about it in the comments section.

Fall Fever

Fall Fever



Hey undergrads and fashionable people! I've been gone from the blog for awhile but I
promise it's because I have fierce, fashionable projects in the works. In the mean time...
 here's my top three picks of what I'm craving for fall. Leather, leather, leather!
 In boots, jackets, cuffs, and on bags, I love anything leather ( or a good faux),
 it's such a tough accent and can make you instantly feel more sleek.
I've been wary of cheetah/leopard print for years but now I'm ready to
 face my wild side, so to speak. I'm taking it in small doses, with accessories,
 a great leopard print shoe or infinity scarf is perfect for fall.
 I love ankle booties, fringe is a fresh update on a classic silhouette, and
 adds a bit of boho to any look.
 What are your top picks for fall?
