Every Week is Fashion Week at College

As a college freshman coming from a private high school where uniforms were required, I’ve never been more excited about clothes, ever. Dress code? Where? Getting written up for wearing sweatpants under your uniform skirt? What uniform skirt? It’s great. 

While I am enjoying my new freedom to express myself through my outfit choices, perhaps my favorite part is seeing what other people are wearing and complimenting them on their outfits (or silently judging them and i oop and i oop sksdkdkgsjfns). Since it’s fashion week and Pittsburgh doesn’t observe this holy week of art and expression, I decided to observe it myself and to document the outfits I see on campus as one should. After all, every week is fashion week at PPU.
