'Keep on Shining' This Fall with Miss Me

7/20/2014

This post is brought to you by Miss Me, however opinions are my own.

It’s nice to know when you share similar beliefs with a brand you love and that’s how I felt when I read the Miss Me manifesto.

I am unique. Strong. Always looking forward, never back. Not willing to sit back and watch things pass, but motivated to go out and make it better. I am not a follower, a mere resident of the world; I am a girl who will go out and change it. I know I can do anything. I’ll keep on shining, no matter what.

This is the kind of thing you want to your clothing to help you communicate with the world, isn’t it? As collegiettes, we are these things: unique, motivated, leaders, and makers of change. We are modern women who deserve a brand and a wardrobe that speaks to this. I feel like Miss Me’s unique embellishments and intricate designs (you can get a look at some of their clothes from this post) really embody this.

The brand is launching their Fall line (and who doesn’t love shopping for fall clothes? It’s my favorite fashion season) and reminding shoppers to “Keep on Shining." You’ll see in the video sneak peak below, but some of those jackets — we’re already salivating. Now we just need the temperature to drop a bit to justify them!

Her Campus’s Father’s Day Gift Guide 2014

6/2/2014

Newsflash: Daddy’s little girls are still expected to spoil their fathers on June 15. Seriously though, this is your day to thank your dad for always cheering you on, helping you with anything from putting together your dorm furniture to getting to your internship on time, and for being there for him when you need him most. So write him a card, get him one of the great gifts suggested below, and then spend the day with your dad (and we’d venture to guess he’d be through the roof if you didn’t text through the whole thing).  

Cards Against Humanity

If your dad is borderline (or just completely) inappropriate at times, you’ll be able to one-up him with this party game. Warning: you will be uncomfortable playing it with him at times, so make sure you both can handle it! $25

Sunglasses

Is Dad a gimmick guy? A beer guy? Here is your perfect gift: sunglasses with beer opening arms. Yes, seriously. He’ll be rocking these all summer long and impressing with everyone with your creative gift from Brewsees. $30
