New year, new me, new cultural appropriation?
Zach Sweedler always loved art, but for a long time he wasn't sure how to apply the passion.
New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is wrapping up, and now it's crucial to take a step back and consider the fashion industry with a critical eye. Many of us, myself included, anticipate the new seasonal trends — even if we wouldn’t wear them on a daily basis. Fashion is art and the designers are artists. It’s fascinating to watch how their creations influence the average American.
On a cool fall night, senior Fabiana Ayala sat cross-legged on her navy University Forest Apartment couch in a pair of red-and-white striped pajamas while catching up on emails. Ayala typically finished up her schoolwork by 10 p.m. during the week so she could get to bed at a decent hour. She dragged herself out of bed around 6 each morning to run her business, TodoSuma.
Allison Toner, a junior, spent the past week behind the scenes of the runways of Fashion Week in New York City. From Sept. 4-10 Toner interned for D+V Management, a talent agency that works with fashion photographers, hairstylists and makeup artists.
Happy almost Pig Roast! It seems as if every conversation we've had this week revolves around the "percentage of rain" that the iPhone weather app is reporting. Either way, everyone is planning on dressing up, rain or shine, and celebrating all day long.

Charl Schwartzel looked pretty fashionable at the Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday when he wore a bright green blazer.
I decided to go home last weekend with the intention of getting some sleep, saving myself an estimated 3,000 extra calories and making significantly better life decisions so that when I woke up on Saturday and Sunday I could look in the mirror and be OK with the person looking back. None of these things would've been accomplished had I stayed at school.
You'd think that working out is working out, plain and simple ‐ whether it be running on the treadmill at home, trying to drop your recently acquired college pounds or fooling yourself into thinking that you can keep them off at the lovely Richmond gym ‐ and you'd think that all workouts are created equal. Wrong.
When entering a University Forest Apartment on campus, a visitor would expect to see band posters, gaming systems, photographs and sports paraphernalia. But this is not the case in the apartment where Elizabeth Timmis lives.
A girl was walking down Amsterdam Avenue with an old-school Adidas duffel bag and a big hankering for a soft pretzel. She was wearing a skirt that looked more like a T-shirt. Her glasses were big, clear and plastic; similar to something you'd see a nut-job scientist wear in a movie. The oversized gray hoodie she wore to cover her matted hair had a Yiddish saying scribbled on the back. As it turns out, that girl was me.
The Young Graduate Council of the Greater Richmond Alumni Chapter hosted "Dress For Success: Building Your Professional Wardrobe" at the Banana Republic in Stony Point Fashion Park. Attendees learned about trends in interview attire, networked with alumni and were given coupons to shop.
First, let me preface what I'm going to say (or I guess write) by stating that I love "the tight black pants" and all the accentuating features they provide to an attractive female body, in addition to the comfort and flexibility they provide for all. (Yes, I've worn a pair.)
