Locke & Blue. Mills College. Oakland, California. September 2015.
I was looking for the bathroom on this college campus in Oakland when visions of street style strolled on by – one by one…in the form of College students. My first thought, I’ll finally start my site, “haute drop-off, the collegiate years” or “haute co-eds”. My second thought , why can’t I be in college!! Third thought, the 90’s rule fashion wise..and I wish I could pull off a choker.
These cute women, slowly walked away from me, after I continued to ask “so where’s the kegger later?”. Meanwhile, I was never a keg party person. I remember going to a keg party, and being mortified because I didn’t know how to use the keg.. you had to negotiate some pump thing and a spout. It was so intimidating, and I felt ashamed for wasting my college years never learning how to use a KEG.
Most importantly, these young women seem so confident in their skin.. and that’s style.
