That looks like a girl I dated in college, who also had a penchant for dressing like a Slavic carnival ride.

Why is there a prostitute on campus? Doesn't she know that ass is basically free there?

The Fashionista pictured is a great example of someone you might see walking around campus. What I love about her look is that it's not uniform; there are a variety of aspects that make it up.

Bunch of shiat thrown together.  What prevents you from saying the words bunch of shiat thrown together.  Is it psychosomatic?  Just say bunch of shiat thrown together.  And what's a fashionista?  Is that something close to a barista?

Looks like she drunkenly woke up in Cyndi Lauper's closet and had to get dressed in the dark.

My ex use to go there and was smart as fark , but outside of books she was a dipshiat. She wouldn't be able to park right in a empty Walmart parking lot. Her mother is a big wig in the East Coast TSA and her father was just her whipping boy.

Nothing she has on is remotely hipsterish.

Or is that the joke?

Although to be fair, Northwestern is in Evanston, which is populated by old, rich people so there's probably lots of high-waisted pants, horn-rimmed glasses and checked button-down shirts to be found at its resale shops, along with maybe a fixie or two.

She looks like she dressed up as 1990 madonna and thought "not enough" so she made a pair of shorts out of some curtains.  Seriously, someone get her some fingerless lace gloves.

That biatch looks like a goddamned train wreck.  If that tried to engage me in public I would immediately get away from her.  That chick brings drugs, violence, and mayhem everywhere she goes.  $5 said that one of those zippers in her purse had drugs behind it.  And not pot, actualy hardened chemically refined drugs.

How to get your article published about fashion?

How to justify any combination of clothing and call it 'hipster'?

be pretty

Seriously, she could write about anything and no one would care about the subject matter if she includes a picture of herself.  She's pretty.  I need to start skipping to the bottom of the article to see who is writing these things.  I just endured a college sophomore's article on hipster fashion.  Geez, what was I thinking?

Not hipster, just another form of stupid and AW.

I've been out of college for 6 years now and I still live close by. I notice the people, especially the girls, dress very nice when they go to bars. They all look hot as fark and made up to the 9s. I remember 8-10 years ago wearing a t shirt and flip flops to the bars and avoiding stepping in pee and puke, but now the kids are all in nice polos and dresses. Is this normal or does UCF just have very good looking students ?

The skirt is all that I find objectionable.

And it looks like a valance, not a curtain.

But hey, if she's confident and secure, she can rock whatever look she wants.  She doesn't need some random internet guy's validation.

On the flip side, she did blog about this, so she's possibly seeking some sort of validation.

Wearing whatever you want makes you a mostly-unemployed college student.

Expecting some sort of standing ovation and writing stupid blog posts about wearing whatever you want is the part that makes you a hipster, because you're spending the effort mostly in a futile effort to seem all hip and shiat.

I admit... I used to think the hipster fad was mostly an American thing. But one of the last days of school I was walking my daughters home and we passed two young guys (I'd say 14 or 15 years old each). They had Buddy Holly style glasses, the old style smoking jackets with patches on the elbows and they were playing Tiger watch games. (One was playing Batman Returns I can't remember what the other was playing). *shakes head*

Pretty much this.  I was thinking, it doesn't really matter what she's wearing because I'm imaging myself taking it off.

Wrong Huffington Post, the clothes don't make the Hipster (though it is part of it, but she looks like a girl who instead had an 80s flashback), the personality does.

When you have a person who brags to you about the "cooperative farm" he/she volunteered at last weekend in "the country", while telling you how much you have to try this "organic farm fresh small batch artisan" potato chips at the vegan burger restaurant "Vurger" because it's "alternative" (or some other euphemism), then scoffs at you when declining their request; which later in the week you see the same person coming out of a 5 Guys with a cheeseburger and some greasy fries, they claim to you when you confront that person "I'm only doing it 'ironically'." *THAT'S A HIPSTER*!

She looks trendy, not "hipster". I didn't read the article but looked at the photos. Her jewelry style is trendy right now and her handbag is a $200 Rebecca Minkoff that 50% of girls her age have.
Basically she looks like ever other girl who is trying to be cute.

This baffles me.  That seems to me to be a lot of money to spend if the primary goal is to attract guys.

She must also be as cute as or cuter than other girls.

Being openly vegan / vegetarian in Texas is against State law.  In some counties it can be considered as being anti-American.  It's worse than being being caught having sex with a dead, black, underage, prostitute (NO racism intended, nor implied).  Or vice versa depending upon who you are.

Pfft, if that was the primary goal she'd walk around in a bikini or novelty costumes.

The PRIMARY goal is to look more attractive than the other girls without looking like you are trying to be attractive, looking like you have access to more expensive and exclusive clothing and in no indicating that you are sexually active, politically aligned, or have any defining personality traits.

That IS one goal.
