Fashionista Spotlight

Somethings are just meant to be lowered. No, I’m not talking about your grade. I am talking about your waist. Drop-waist dresses are perfect for when you want to look sophisticated and fun at the sametime. A great example of this is the flapper dress. This Fashionista’s drop-waist dress is a great take on the '20s with a modern floral print twist.

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where did you get it from?

Lacie Himes: It’s a dress from Gap. The socks are from Gap too and my shoes are from Urban Outfitters. The watch is from Retshop. It’s a shop on Etsy. The guy handcrafts everything. He is so cool!

CF: Which celebrity style do you love the most?

LH: I don’t really pay enough attention to it! There are some people that I see and I like their stuff, but no one particular.

CF: Is there a trend that you want to try, but afraid of committing to?

LH: No, but the one thing that I haven’t done yet is shaving my head.

CF: How does this outfit make you feel?

LH: It’s my favorite outfit! I feel fun, comfortable and my boots make me feel like I can do anything!
