Campus Sartorialist: October

pumps

Autumnal fashion is great fashion. And Georgetown autumnal fashion is even greater. You guys seriously look flawless all of the time. I’m very jealous of your clothing, very often. So you’ve got that going for you. Which is nice.

The 4E staff was so inspired by your style that we decided to hit the pavement around the John Carroll statue, wait for you beautiful people to walk by and feature your impeccable class on our blog.

First up is Sindhu Darisi (MSB ’15) and her friend who is unfortunately not a Hoya. We had to get a picture of them together. Have you ever seen two people look so cool and coordinated? The sunglasses, the dark color-scheme, the Zara boots. ***Flawless.

Next we met another fabulous pair: Sarah Joseph (NHS ’18) and Rajiah Arbab (COL ’18). We loved Sarah’s boots and Rajiah’s mixed patterns!

On this lovely fall day we also ran into Connor Canning (COL ’16), who wouldn’t take credit for his killer jacket because his sister bought it for him. Gotta love a stylish sister but you were rocking it, Connor.

Recent graduate Tierra Evans (’14) and undergrad Shawnetta Stephens (’15) were just walking around enjoying homecoming weekend and looking super autumnal when we approached them to let them know how good they were looking. Their knit game was on point and we love Tierra’s earrings. Also the guest appearance by Jack on the left was cool. Hey Jack!

This photo of Will Stroup (COL ’17), Michael Hosbein (NHS ’17) and Carter Rise (COL ’17) is super candid (sorry Michael) but we think it’s part of their aesthetic; so casual cool. They’re looking very Georgetown in their polos, zip-up vests and Ray-Bans. Keep it up and keep sipping that Peace Tea.

Anthony Buonomo (COL ’16) and Peter Armstrong (SFS ’15) had just left the costume sale in the Davis Performing Arts Center but they still managed to look suave. We got a hipster Shakespeare vibe from Anthony and a badass Jack-O-Lantern look from Peter. Never stop posing fiercely and popping your puffy collar.

Finally we have Jordan Neman (’16), a Hoya, and all of his fashionable friends (Angie Kang, Steven Neman and Brigitte Neman) who unfortunately don’t even go here and won’t grace us with their style daily. They just look so good together, uk? Also Angie’s hair is purple, so that’s awesome.

Conclusion: You are all beautiful and you’re weirdly good at coordinating outfits with your friends. Can’t wait to feature more of you Hoyas looking lovely together next month.

Huge thanks to blogger Meg Lizza who helped me choose Hoya fashionistas and chase them down. Thanks for making it less aca-awkward.

The 4E Guide to Emojis

Guide to Emojis

Here at 4E, we just have one question for you:

tumblr_n6z1izqDbX1qk08n1o1_500

And, of course, we know that you do. Emojis (or what the older generation refers to as “those tiny picture thingies”) can enhance any text or Facebook message. But, a problem arises when these little wondrous characters are used improperly. So, to make sure that everyone is using them correctly, we put together a guide to some of our favorite Emojis.

1. The Alcohol Emojis

These little guys are perfect for any party invitation via text. Whether you’ve already had your fair share of Hot Cinny Burnett’s and don’t care to type out the word “beer” or you feel like making your pre-game invitation special, you just can’t go wrong with any of these.

2. The Chill Emoji

My personal favorite emoji is the emoji that looks like it’s just too suave for the rest of them. This can be used for so many different scenarios, but the best way to use it is when you’re trying to make moves.

3. The Poop Emoji

We had to include this little guy just because someone at some point thought, “Hey, you know what would make an awesome emoji? A SMILING PILE OF POO!” But hey, I’m glad they did. Now, when I’m in a horrible situation, all I have to do is type out this single character.

4. The Salsa Dancer and the Kissing Couple

Since the 4E bloggers are at the forefront of social and technological innovation, we know how to combine two emojis to convey the perfect message. Nothing goes together better than the Salsa Dancer and the Kissing Couple…

5. The Sad/Shocked Emoji

This emoji works perfectly in situations when you really can’t tell if you are going to scream your head off or bawl your eyes out. So when you’re in this time of confusion, feel free to throw this emoji out there; the person you’re messaging will understand your pain.

6. The Clapping Emoji

Sometimes, your friends deserve some congratulations. But when “congratulations” doesn’t suffice, give them a round of applause!

7. The Spot-On Emoji

This is a perfect emoji to use when someone does something that is on point. Whether it’s a relevant comment in class or a solidly filtered photo on Instagram, this emoji can be used to commemorate the momentous occasion.
