I Know What You Wore Last Summer

As a girl whose favorite color is black, this recent Los Angeles heat wave has made my sartorial life a little difficult. I feel most comfortable in my winter clothes, which typically consist of fitted trousers, faux fur coats, and turtlenecks. Summer, especially when the temperatures reach 106 degrees Fahrenheit, is not my favorite season. And yes, I am a native Angeleno who happens to be cursing the sun lately. It’s interfering with my aesthetic. However, there are certain trends that I saw and tried my hardest to follow this summer that I will miss dearly. Here’s my list, in no particular order:   READ MORE

A Royal Visit

By Karen Oliva

September 19, 2014 Last week, Occidental was visited by one of England’s best British boy bands. Before you think One Direction secretly held a concert on campus while you were asleep, I’m referring to the amazing a cappella group, All the Kings Men. Equally as charming and good looking as 1D, All the Kings Men stopped by the Bird Studio on Thursday as part of their US tour. The a cappella group came to us all the way from King’s College London where the group was originally founded in 2009. Just like the Barden Bellas from Pitch Perfect, this year AtKM made it to the International Championships of Collegiate A cappella (ICCA); an impressive accomplishment unprecedented by any other UK a cappella group.

Do you have a crop top in your closet that you never really know how to wear? Sometimes it can be a little tricky to pair the top because of its length, but it can be worn not only when it's hot out, but also when it's a little cold out as well so you don't have to look like you just came back from the beach when it's freezing out. The picture above shows a crop top from Free People that is in basic white and has cute lace detailing in the back. The color is neutral and can be paired with many things.  READ MORE
