Campus Fashion Police

8 Dec

If you read our about us page, you know that we were inspired by the hit TV show Gossip Girl. We wanted this to be a sounding board for everything chic, a focus group for the fashion-minded, and of course, a police force for perpetrators of style crime.

We’ve been slowly building a network of interested and like-minded friends and fans, which has been great. {We encourage you to continue referring us to your interested friends.} Lately, we’ve been receiving the exact kind of reaction and traffic that we’ve been looking for. We appreciate comments and ideas on the blog here, and we REALLY appreciate the Twitter traffic. In the past few weeks we’ve gotten tweets reporting ridiculous style on campus, and our favorites are the picture evidences {just like Gossip Girl!!!!}. Here are the latest terrors.

[[Note: We do not know who these people are, and this is not intended as any personal attack on them. Please no identification of these individuals. Maybe just buy them a more stylish present for Christmas?]]

This one is from the ever stylish Tom Nance (follow him on Twitter), spotted in the HBLL. You know how I feel about knit headbands.

Our friend Jessica Farrell (follow her on Twitter) notified us of this fantastic number. I owe her. I now no longer have to explain why I hate knit headbands. I can just show them this.

Our latest photo incrimination is horrifying. Kristin Lybbert (Follow her on Twitter) saw someone wearing these. Croc slippers. I refused to believe they existed. Turns out. They do. And it’s literally called their “Fuzz Collection.”

Thank you all for your contributions! Keep the good and bad style coming! For those of you not using Twitter, this is reason enough to start.

In the Beginning…

14 Oct

Danica got this brilliant idea a few weeks ago to tweet about all of the fashion mishaps she sees on campus–from fanny packs to shape-ups. When she told me her idea, it reminded me of Gossip Girl and so I thought, “Hey, since my life goal is to be a character in Gossip Girl, why not just act like Gossip Girl and create a nice little blog to accompany all of these fashion tragedies?”

So, here we are. Two seniors on BYU’s campus who have created a blog about the style around us. And because we don’t want you to think we are horrible people, we will also reference great examples of style. Because, believe it or not, there’s plenty of that, too.

Now let’s get something straight. We are not claiming that we have great style or even know anything about style. In fact, you’re welcome to comment about our style whenever you’d please. We actually strongly encourage that you tell us what you are seeing, and if it happens to be our outfits, then come what may.

We can dish it out, AND take it.
