No, Classy is NOT the word I would Use.

I have been asked by a dear friend to post on a subject close to her heart. Fashion. As she has a very tender heart, she has been feeling low about the way fashion around her has been changing. As she is open to many ideas, she would never worry about wearing white after labour day. An old wives tale. She believes all fur should be faux, unless you inherit it. It's not granny's fault that her husband showered her with dead animals. No, in fact, she believes in embracing your own style. Knowing this, it shouldn't come as a suprise that she feels the current University wardrobe screams Prostitot. Therefore, in an effort to keep as many girls as she can off the pole she gives this sage advice.

1. Racerback tank tops require strapless or convertible bras!!

2. Spandex gaucho pants are not meant for every body type!

3. Short shorts or cutoffs paired with high heels make you look like a hooker not a fashion plate!!

4. Finally, an academic institution is not a bar, therefore don't show up for class dressed like you are ready to hop on top of a pair of speakers and shake it.

Editors Note: Nor will dressing like a Prostitot make you more datable. It only proves you are a tool in hands of the marketers that want to sell you half a skirt for full skirt price.
