October 2, 2014 - 10:06am

We’ve all walked up and down the sweater racks in thrift stores for our ugly Christmas sweaters or to find some high waisted jeans to cut up, but have we stopped to consider that there is actually some great steals hiding beneath the shoulder pads and oversized jean dresses? Thrift store racks can be intimidating and quite daunting with the amounts of clothes squeezed on them, but for every 20 awful garments there is that one great piece just waiting to be found. As a college woman, I can honestly say that I have a shopping problem, and the only way that I can afford my shopping problem has been with the help of some seriously awesome local thrift stores. I take pride in my finds and I’m especially pleased with the small price I’ve had to pay....

I remained skeptical for a long time, but when I started noticing all of the posts online about Tina Belcher and why bloggers believed she could be the next feminist icon, I couldn't resist. I had to see what all the fuss was about. And I was surprised. READ MORE

By Elena Cleaves
September 30, 2014 - 9:48am

Let’s face it: tuition is expensive. Too expensive. Like, “I’m going to be drowning in debt the rest of my life” expensive.

KU freshman Sophie Milstein (@sophandsuch) is known for a lot of things, such as her impeccable taste in music, her unique sense of humor, and her friendly extraversion that makes her incredibly easily to get along with. In addition to all of her charismatic traits, Sophie can be seen on campus flaunting a personal style that has us style-crushing hard.
