Transferring to Public School

Posted by on March 3, 2015 | No Comments »

Word on the street is Public School 214 is the new hot spot in West Village, so the SMUStyle team stopped by on Sunday to see what all the hype is about. Easy to say, we approve and will be back for “Recess” soon.

 We always appreciate cute table papers.

The mezze plate is perfect for sharing between friends over a (first) round of drinks – crispy chickpeas are a must.

The Crushed Velvet is a sure to be favorite drink of the girls’ night out – think of it as a Moscow mule with a sweet twist. Adorable presentation complimentary with all drink purchases.

Daniela had fun getting ready for spring break with her festive Jungle Juice.

Chorizo Mac and Cheese with potato chips was a crowd favorite – leave the calorie counter and regrets at home on this one.

The salads were a popular choice that evening, with plenty of options for the health inclined – something about our weekends made us strive for skinny on Sunday night.

Taylor loooved his brown bag fries – sriracha ketchup for the win.

Public School is an incredibly versatile location, perfect for a girls’ night on the town or throwing back a few brews with the bros. I’d even propose this spot as a sweet first date solution. The menu offers tons of variety to please a crowd, and the craft beer enthusiasts will rejoice at the lengthy list of lager options. Be sure to make a reservation, PS is always full, even early on a Sunday night.

There’s no better way to celebrate the cold with some school days off. Between the snow days and the hot chocolate, don’t forget to bundle up to be warm and cozy for this oh-so-cold weather. BRR.

For the girls on the go, here’s some ways to transform your favorite LBD… d2nLBDClass: jacket/bra/bag/shoes/sunglasses          Dress          Club: jacket/bra/bag/shoes/necklace

Emporium: Is that your Grandma’s pie?

Posted by on February 17, 2015 | No Comments »

Scene: your sweet as sugar, southern as molasses grandma’s porch on a hot summer day with an ice cold lemonade in hand and a plate full of made-from-scrath-homemade pie in front of you. Enter Stage Left: Emporium Pies.

Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 12.31.40 PM Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 12.32.55 PM

Emporium is currently doing business in McKinney and Bishop Arts, with plans to expand soon. They’re set up in a sweet little cottage that gives instant summer afternoon at Grandma’s vibes, if Grandma had an eye for interior design and a culinary degree.

Their menu changes seasonally to accommodate the most appropriate flavors of the moment, with a few mainstays that are year round.

Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 12.32.19 PM

The Standards: In the Limelight is a tart take on a traditional key lime, and will not disappoint the long time lime lovers. Dr. Love will get you through that post V-day depression, because who doesn’t like a good pie more than a good kiss. Blue Steel is the model (HA) of traditional blueberry bliss, and why fix what isn’t broken?

Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 12.32.39 PM

The Standouts: Smooth Operator. Wow. Personal favorite medal placed here. The salty pretzel crust counters the sweet, creamy chocolate in such a way that you’ll hear angels singing in your ear fighting over who gets to steal a bite. Cloud Nine is LITERALLY like eating a cloud, a fluffy, gooey, butterscotchy cloud. I could dive into a bathtub of this stuff and die a happy girl.

The Drunken Nut and Lord of the Pies were sweetly satisfactory as well, not straying from traditional tastes (unadventurous eaters, look here for safe and sweet).

Yeezy Taught Me [Kanye x Adidas Recap]

Posted by on February 13, 2015 | No Comments »

After his familiar stunt at the Grammys, Kanye West again proved his ability to consume the mouths of his fellow Americans. Whether you agree with his shameless opinions or not, you’ve got to admit the guy knows how to steal the spotlight. I’m going to purge any memory of his tragic attempt to make a fashion statement Sunday night, and say he has a unique and intriguing style, which I’m kind of really into. After keeping us waiting for almost two years, it was announced that the Kanye and Adidas collab would be dropping on the first day of NYFW. He began hyping the release through social media, and with help of his recent re-entry into the public eye, the attention and anticipation exponentially grew.

The event took place at Skylight Clarkson Square in Manhattan, and was simultaneously shown in 50 theatres across the nation. The runway featured minimalist models with a post-apocalyptic vibe  (plus Kylie Jenner?) and introduced a new  song called “Wolves” featuring Sia and Vic Mensa, setting a darker tone for the show. The collection was composed of oversized sillohuettes and a military inspired style. Definitely a future orientated sense of fashion and reminds of norm core with an angsty and dark twist. The guest list apparently received an invitation in the form of a custom anorak, and boasted A-listers such as Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Beyoncé & Jay Z, P. Diddy, Justin Bieber, Big Sean, and of course, the Kardashians.

The focal point of the show was the premiere of the Yeezy 750 Boost, a grey and white suede high top, retailing at $350. Of course to accrue even more hype, there will only be 9,000 pairs available until the wide-release set for February 28. Adidas even created an app where you can reserve your pair before they hit stores on Saturday.

We Dem Boys

Posted by on February 12, 2015 | No Comments »


If I were a boy…….


Well I don’t exactly want that (here’s looking at you Bruce Jenner), but I do love to borrow from our male counterparts every once in a while. Although I have my fair share of sky-high heels and flirty skirts, I’m a big sucker for androgynous dressing. Not only does it make me feel like a bad-ass, but it’s comfy too… and fashion doesn’t have to be pain all the time, right? Plus, if you’ve been blessed with the midget genes like me and Nati, you too can be lucky enough to score some great finds in the little boys department, since we’re all just ballin’ on a college budget over here.


From collared shirts and blazers, to sweatpants and sneakers, and everything in between, if he’s wearing it, so are we.
