Final Words from the Editors

*Cue Vitamin C’s Graduation Song*

It’s here. The day we have all dreaded… Schuyler and Shannon are spreading their wings and flying away. You may think we’re joking, but in all seriousness, we will all mourn the blog’s loss of the two people who have shaped it over the past four years.

With the help of our friends at Elements Boutique, it only seems fitting if we profile our editors, their time with SMUstyle, and hear their final thoughts one last time.


Do you remember your first posts?

Sky: A DevouringDallas post DUH! HG supply when it first opened.

Shannon: A Christmas gift guide.

What was your favorite post? 

Sky: I love working with Elements. Their store is nothing short of amazing. Pulling the clothes and borrowing them for a day….highlight!

Shannon: I loved doing all of the different photoshoots, it’s so fun to dress up. Also, just doing posts on our blogger meetings. It’s something to look forward to every weekend, going to brunch and talking about things and goofing off.


Where do you think the blog is going?

Sky: SMUstyle has a bright future. I could see it becoming a franchise and making it out of the SMU niche. There is so much passion, handwork and drive from the bloggers. It’s going viral kids.


Where do you see yourself within the next five years?

Sky: In London…. peace out America

Shannon: Schuyler and I are definitely leaving SMUstyle in good hands. I see it only growing from here, especially with further expanding readership from the SMU community to the Dallas community. Also, we’ve already heard of students at other schools reading the blog and I hope that we can influence these students to bring fashion blogs to other schools and universities.


Where do you see yourself within the next five years?

Shannon: Hopefully in NYC working in the business side of fashion, whether that be in buying or PR. I’ve wanted to live in the city for as long as I can remember, so I know I’ll regret it if I don’t make the big move from the west (best) coast to the east coast.


What soundtrack will you be playing while walking to get your diploma?

Sky’s Final Words: SMUstyle has shaped my college experience. I am truly humbled and honored to have seen the blog succeed so much in just 4 years. It has given me a creative platform and the ability to establish myself. The bloggers are like family and we created our own little community. This is just the beginning #RushSMUstyle


Shannon’s Final Words: I’m so grateful to have been apart of SMUstyle. Not only has it given me an outlet to share my love for fashion, but I have met some pretty awesome people along the way. It has also given me several opportunities to do things that I wouldn’t have been able to do without the blog and has driven me to further explore Dallas. As excited and ready as I am to graduate (aka I’ve been counting down the days since September), I really am sad to leave our SMUstyle family behind. I can honestly say this blog is one of the top, if not the very best, experiences I’ve gained from SMU.
