Hey everyone! I hope you’ve been enjoying this awesome launch week! I know I have been. I’m Lauren, and I’m the writer for the fashion beat section of the Crescent Online. Being a huge advocate of personal style, you’ll see all sorts of things in the weeks to come–everything from men’s and women’s fashions to George Fox street style, from restyling tips to facing print-mixing fears, and even some fashion DIY projects and a ton of other fun things.
Even if you don’t consider yourself a fashionable person, everyone has a personal style, and this beat is all about celebrating that and our ability to manipulate clothing to portray a message about who we are. It’s fascinating to get a glimpse into a person just by looking at the kind of shoes he wears, the style of her dress, or the color combinations they come up with. And for those who want to express themselves better through their clothes, I hope this will be a place you can go to for inspiration and insight.
As for a little bit about the girl behind this beat, I am a freshman English and Studio Art double major from Alaska who loves cats and card games and potatoes. On top of being a writer, I also take pictures occasionally and keep up with a personal blog. You can usually see me running around campus with a camera, a tripod, and probably some insane prop in my hand, or hanging out with my friends watching too many episodes of “Community”, and having knitting parties.
I’m so excited for this new direction that the Crescent is taking and also for the Fashion beat! If there’s anything you guys would like to see, please don’t hesitate to let me know! You can leave a suggestion in the comments or on any of my other internet haunts. This is a community and together we’ll explore some awesome aspects of fashion and personal style.
Have an awesome day everyone!
