Greetings from Greece! Hope the weather is just as brilliant over there as it is here. Finally have gotten settled in, and have found the time to squeeze in another post. Here’s another excellent find from the Senior Luau a couple weeks back: Senior (now graduated, I believe) Cedrick in a relaxed outfit. I love the cuffed white pants, paired with a button-up blouse and straw hat. Quite nautical. Looks like he could very well stepped out of the French Riviera. And my favorite part: the two-toned boat shoes.

Also, Books&Liquor has just been featured in an awesome BostInno article, written by Lauren Landry, about the Boston-area university fashion scene. If you’re interested in reading, click here.

Congratulations Harvard Class of 2012

Posted by Emily on Saturday, May 26th, 2012

Congrats to the Harvard class of 2012 on all of your hard work!  Those miserable sleepless nights cramming and writing last-minute papers have finally paid off! Of course, I’ve graduated along with the class as well——but have no fear, for those of you who avidly follow Books&Liquor, as I’ll be sticking around Cambridge. I’ll be working and living here, so I will still update the blog. I’m hopping on a plane to Greece for a vacation with all of my roommates (in a few hours, in fact) but I’ll certainly keep the blog updated in the meantime with some of the photographs that I’ve taken over the past few weeks that I’ve been a bit too busy to get around to. See you soon!

During Class Day: graduating senior Hanna. I often bump into Hanna in the Square or catch her walking around the River Houses dressed in interesting garb, and I always intend to photograph her, but in every instance I’ve not had my camera with me. I’m very glad to have spotted her today during the class day picnic event——probably one of my last chances to have featured her on this blog! Of course, donning an elegant vintage dress and bag. Anyway, congrats to Hanna on your four years of hard work here——hope to catch you during graduation tomorrow!

Danny and Danny

In the Quad during the Senior Luau: two Dannys, one studying neurobiology and the other pursuing molecular and cellular biology, both in awesome patterned shirts.

You might also remember that each have actually been featured on Books&Liquor  on separate occasions: here, and here. If I recall correctly, both were photographed during the fall semester. It’s interesting to see how personal style changes over seasons, isn’t it?

Along the Charles River: History of Art and Architecture concentrator, musician (voice in Collegium and a violinist in BachSoc), and now-senior Ariana in a blue flower print tea dress with matching earrings.
According to Ariana:  “My closet is a hodgepodge of items from various stores and the occasional great find from my mom’s closet or my grandma’s jewelry boxes. And the earrings——handmade by me. I’ve been making jewelry for years.”
“I’m from South Florida. My obsession is with sundresses. In fact one of my end-of-year banquet awards was for Best Sundresses.”

On Widener steps: Shaved hair, red lips, black dress. Simple and stunning.
Such a strange but brilliant choice of winged golden kicks. They remind me, in fact, of the Roman mythological character, Mecury, messenger of the gods who wore winged sandals.

Royal blue

An incredibly eye catching pairing of royal blue with a monotone pattern.

Outside of Cafe Pamplona: a modern-day Marilyn Monroe? Lexi was sipping a cup of coffee with a friend when I spotted her bleach-blond hair, which stood out from nearly a while away.
As an art history major at Amherst, she chose to tattoo her back with reference to a work of art she loves.
Bubblegum dress, pearl earrings, circle-frame shades, short blond hair: super fun and flirty!

Angela Squared

In Harvard Yard: a pair of Angelas who are roommates, best friends, and style bloggers. They live and go to school in Boston, though they are originally from Spain and Venezuela. When asked about their style, they said:

“We just really like mixing up delicate feminine things with edgy and sometimes masculine items. We sometimes shop in the boys section and wear our dad’s things. Other than that, we like mixing different colors and textures, and love wearing colors that don’t match.”

With interesting textures and darker colors, they definitely stood out from the typical Yard crowd. Neon rings, sheer blouses, torn fabric——pretty bold stuff!

On Widener steps: Harvard senior Shereen, who looked exquisite wearing her airy floor-length dress. She said she bought it in Pakistan.
Fun with fabric.
I’m also quite fond of the cuff.
