Walking to Class...


I'm a fan of the cleaner, more military styled jacket with the fun-coloured boots and hat. You can tell her personality shines through here.

Great way to make a bold statement in winter and fall. Great colour coat, and the gold buttons are a cute detail.


Chic Comfort...


Loving the tweed vest and plaid scarf over comfy baseball tee and yoga pants. The patent leather headband is a great way to dress up a pony tail when you're on-the-go.


Windy windy windy...


Over-sized sweaters look so comfortable and fun. I love the design on the collar of this one, and the shape of the sweater's neck really compliments her hairstyle.

Zach and Jacob

They really compliment one another style-wise. Loving the shoes and hats.




I know people usually shy away from ponchos, but we think she sports this adorably. Don't you?


Red Hot Jacket...


A lesson on how to wear warm colors in winter. Natalie sports a red coat with classic gilded buttons and a rich (dare i say) fur trim coller to keep her extra warm. The hints of green almost serve as a reminder of the upcoming holiday season. Also loving the mischevious cat-eye frames with rhinestone detailing.

I really like the accessories here. Arm warmers look really good with a lot of coats (as long as they're the right colour) and Dana pulls them off well here. Again, love that new high-waist coat silhouette.


All Black...


Love the way the sleeves fall here. And all black during the day is such a chic look. The empire waisted jacket is very popular right now.


High Collar...


I really love the look of a high-collared coat. Very classic but very edgy at the same time.

Belted Scarf...


I personally, am a really big fan of the belted scarf look. It looks so free and easy, doesn't it?


Back to Black


I loved the detailing on the dress along with the military inspired coat and vintage necklace.

At Night...

Sorry for the blurry picture, it was a lot darker out than it seems in the picture. I like the combination of the black and white skirt with the bright red boots. Really fun, right?

Things that Make me Giggle...

Fashion Tidbit!!!

Michael Kors real name is 'Karl Anderson Jr.'

Given Michael Kors style, I feel Karl Anderson Jr. sounds more All-American, no?

Think about that next time you watch Project Runway...

Fun with Accessories...


We love how she takes basic fall neutrals, and makes the outfit pop with colourful accessories. Great!

Loving the length, and the red really pops against the gray. Great fall look.

Fun, energetic, and bold! Awesome.

Great Colours...

I really love the neutrals here. Nothing is too much and that gives the look a great sense of sophistication. That belt adds so much too.
Love the pleats on the back of the jacket too!

In the Cemetery...


This outfit is killer. The soft layered earthtones work great in the fall. A very vintage and delicate look. Beautiful.


Fun Colour...

I really like how she put herself together. The scarf goes extremely well with her hair colour, complexion and eyes.


Windy Windy!...

Brook, Grad Student
Love the 2 coats! That scarf is awesome too.


Longer Proportions...

Love that top! It looks so delicate but fun. The shoes make it a really fun outfit.

Walking On the Street...


Great proportions here. Love the shape of that coat, its draped very elegantly.


Walking On the Street...

We LOVE fall coats! High-Collars are so trendy, and the herringbone fabric will look good with colours that pop, as well as neutrals.

On the Way to a Career Fair...

Really awesome outfit. The high-waisted skirt makes it so modern, the black and white makes it classic. Love the subtle colour in the accessories. And those heels!!!...


After Classes...


We really love that coat! The whole outfit is styled really well, but that coat just pops! The print screams fall.

100th Post!!!!

Woo!! Here it is!! The Stitch Society's 100th Post!!

Professor Jeffrey Mayer has been with the University's fashion design program for 15 years. Stitch interviewed him about the current “That Girl” exhibit displayed in the fashion design office.

Stitch: Can you explain the project?
Mayer: Well a few years ago the fashion program was in Slocum hall. We had a great
exhibit space which was the Genet Gallery. When they started to renovate Slocum, we had to move everything down to Skytop on south campus. We had to look to see where we could set up our next exhibition space and came across the 3rd floor in Lyman. We cleaned it out, painted the walls a nice ‘Dior Gray’ and we’ve been holding the exhibits in this room for a year now.

Stitch: How long is each exhibit shown for?
Mayer: Each exhibit lasts a semester, which gives students the chance to come and see
each one as they can.

Stitch: How do you come up with the themes for each of the exhibits?
Mayer: Well the last exhibit was Marie Antoinette themed. It was when the movie came
out, so inspiration came from that. We had Marie Antoinette expressed in 3 different eras. It was really cool to see a fashion rock star Marie. This exhibit was inspired by the show “That Girl”. It was about an aspiring actress in New York City named ‘Ann Marie’ played by Marlo Thomas. The mod fashion is still relevant to today and can be seen in modern trends and what people are wearing.

Stitch: So can you tell us what the concept for the next exhibit will be?
Mayer: We’re thinking Queen Victoria. The walls will be plaid, tons of pictures, the
room will be completely different. You’ll have to come back and see!

So everyone, check it out!

On the Brink of Winter...

NaHye, Grad Student

We love how she has mastered both seasons here. She combines the warmth necessary to survive in winter, without looking extremely bulky. Loving the beret too, it really adds a splash of colour. The pin is a great way to add some character to any outfit.

On the Phone...


I caught Allison on the phone. What I really like about this outfit is the combination of those leggings with those boots. Make sure you click on the picture to enlarge it and check out those leggings- they're awesome.

Fashion Tidbit!

Alright, first things first... Sorry for the lack of posts recently! All of our lives have been really hectic lately, illness has been flying around campus, and frankly, its been really cold. But now that work is subsiding a little bit (and also we got our flu shots) we'll be booting back up full force!

This is going to be a different kind of post, we're going to call it a 'Fashion Tidbit'. We'll bring you the coolest information about fashion happenings so you can slip them into conversation and be perceived as an instant diva. True story.

So here goes:

Fendi this season (Spring/Summer 08 show) was shown at quite an odd location, The Great Wall of China... The Runway spanned 120 meters and was mostly down-hill. Because of how thin the wall is on top, only 2 rows of guests were allowed to be on either side.

Also, check it out on youtube... the music is pretty cool.
