Music Midtown

By Justine Schoenbart
September 17, 2014 - 11:04am

Remember when you came to Emory and promised yourself you’d leave campus and go into Atlanta? Yeah, so do I. Well, even if you haven’t made your trip into Atlanta for any other reason besides going to eat at your favorite brunch spot, this weekend you should Uber your way over to Piedmont Park (or take the Emory Experience Shuttle) because there’s a reason to check out the ATL…and it isn’t the World of Coca-Cola or the Georgia Aquarium. On September 19th and 20th, Music Midtown is celebrating its 15th music festival in Atlanta and featuring a pretty hot lineup. If you’re an Iggy Azalea and Lorde kind of person, you’re in luck—they’ll be there. READ MORE

Each year, fashion followers like myself eagerly anticipate the arrival of the bi-annual Fashion Weeks in New York, Milan, Paris, and London. While all followers of this fashion haven are excited for the runway shows themselves, street style is an equally, if not more engrossing component. Online publications track everyone from bloggers, to socialites, to the models themselves, allowing viewers around the globe to track the latest trends and see how daring fashionistas style the garments of the designers.

For­ most college students, freshmen year is their first time living away from home. With that being said, it is their first opportunity to decorate their room anyway they please.

  When trying to deal with the heat but still look trendy, try some scalloped shorts and a boxy t-shirt. Add a pair of strappy sandals to complete the look.  READ MORE

NYFW Spring '15 Roundup

By Jasmine Tang
September 12, 2014 - 1:42pm

The roundups of trends after Fall Fashion Week are able to exclusively predict what girls will be taking home in their shopping bags this coming spring. Last year, Céline’s take on an updated, clean slip-on shoe pretty much ensured that most ladies would be sporting those comfy kicks throughout the next season. Here are my top three trends from Fall 2015 NYFW that I hope will make it into my wardrobe ASAP. All-White Ensembles The old standby of no white after Labor Day is totally outdated at this point. Sure, people wear their white jeans and tees year round, but this year I’m going to wear full white ensembles in modern cuts to keep things fresh. I love the idea of contrasting a structured, moto jacket with loose pants (a la Lubov Azria)....

Rain or Shine (and Shine it Does)

By Emily van den Berg
September 11, 2014 - 1:42pm

I’m willing to go out on a limb here and bet that I’m not the only person who’s looked out the window this week and thought “what the hell, Atlanta???” Seriously. Between the crazy heat, the insane humidity and the downright terrifying thunderstorms, I’ve had a hard time getting dressed in the morning. Because how do you look adorable when you’re dripping in sweat, your hair is frizzing out of control and you’re either cowered under an umbrella or soaked to the bone like a wet dog? Admittedly there’s only so much you can do to combat these situations, but hopefully I can help (and then we can all look as fabulous as Cara).  READ MORE

How To Get Over The Sophomore Slump

By Emma Belfer
September 10, 2014 - 1:44pm

According to Wikipedia, a sophomore slump is defined as: An instance in which a second effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort According to Emory girls, a sophomore slump is: The feeling that your epic, life-changing freshman year was just too good to be topped by sophomore year   This notion is followed by a feeling of depression that you’ve died a little inside, you’ve peaked, and your crazy college life is over. Time to become a real person now! It’s that feeling you get when you find out a freshman gets into Maggie’s but you got turned away. (How do you not remember my face? Sorry guys, I’m still a little bitter.)   READ MORE
