Do As The Professors Do

It has been far too cold to think about stealing people off the street let alone make the necessary steps to actually do so. However this doesn't mean that I haven't been looking for superb sub-zero fashion. One of my favorites so far is being worn by an unlikely bunch, the great male professors of Ohio University. A casual suit worn contrastingly and harmoniously tucked into a pair of well-constructed rain boots. Already today I have spotted one of these well-fashioned men in Perks, as well as right outside of Baker sporting this interesting and scholarly combination. I hope to get a sample of one soon but for now I have to let a mental image suffice while I chatter my teeth.

So do as your fashionable elder professors do and go the classic rain boot way. Frankly I'm sick of the day-glo patterns and would like to see some old-school equestrian styles roaming these ice laden streets.

Thoughts on Court

I've been sitting in a *Nameless* tanning salon on Court waiting for my friend to finish toasting her skin for approximately 20 minutes. Within these 1,200 seconds I have seen about 15-20 collegiate girls walk in and out. Every single one of them (and when I say every single one, I mean excluding not one girl) was happily sporting her own "unique" pair of Uggs. Eight to ten were wearing a lovely chestnut color, five-ish were sporting the dark brown, and the rest were devoted to black. O wait! Lets re-tally the count and add two more to the chestnut category. Some slipped passed me while I was writing the past four to five sentences.

Lets guesstimate that an average pair of Uggs costs between $130- $160. Now lets take the lump some of money and apply it to something stylish.

Here we have a beautiful pair of Militia Booties found on Modcloth.com with both Chestnut and Mocha worked into the boot. Now you don't have to choose!

Militia Booties $127.99

And here for those few of you devoted to black, a soft leather pair of Buckle Boots from Urban Outfitters.
Buckle Boot $98

Each under $160. Each making a difference in my daily near-drownings in a sea of Uggs.

I just found this website. It made me laugh.

Mixed Patterns on South Court

Robin White
Senior Political Science Major

I did a double take and immediately grabbed Robin after seeing her gorgeous coat whisk past me on South Court. After my eyes were able to move from her coat and digest the rest of her look, I was able to see the other intricate patterns that she had incorporated effortlessly into her ensemble. These completely different patterns are quirky yet unexpectedly pleasing to the eye. Robin was a refreshing winter look in a sea full of down and sweats.

Toshiko Kobayashi
Sophomore Journalism Major

I may or may not have cornered Toshiko in the bathroom when I saw what she was wearing along with her new stylishly choppy cut. However I decided to keep her and Court Cloth's dignity intact and photograph her just in front of the large windows towards the back of the building. Toshiko's outfit perfectly described her laid back spunk with an eclectic grouping of muted colors. I was hoping her backpack was purchased in a store native to Japan (where she spent her excessively long six week break) but she just happened to pick it up at one of my all time favorite stops. Urban Outfitters of course.... I knew we connected immediately for a reason.
