Adorn Your Head

So often forgotten, but so key in remembering. Next time you dash out the door in a rush consider shielding your face from harsh UV rays by adorning your head with the perfect summer hat. These two are just some ideas at different price points. If you've got the creative spark, consider picking up a basic straw hat or fedora from a craft store or even a large chain like a forever 21 and threading ribbon around the exterior. You could add flowers, pins or yarn and compliment it with your favorite summer dress. Women everywhere have the rare opportunity to snatch up designs from Eugenia Kim, a renowned milliner whose designs normally retail between 200 and 300 dollars, for rock bottom prices at Target. This particular style is $16.99 and the other colorful mixed print hat can be found at Anthropology.

Happy Hat Hunting from CovetedList!

CovetedList embraces the summer!!

Your CovetedList Connoisseurs want you to go out...get tan, travel, get some new fashion inspirations to share with us and utilize CovetedList for your personalized shopping needs and communication with fellow shoppers.

Our Fashion show went FANTASTIC and we want to send a big shout out to all of you who attended and gave us feedback for next year! Keep following us over summer as we will all be traveling or staying in Gainesville to gain new insights for you. Keep an eye out for more Coveted Gators and look forward to the events we have in store for you next year! We're thinking along the lines of a DIY workshop..letting you take home a brand new accessory at the end to add to your wardrobe. Other girls will be drooling! Possibly even a customized fashion show without models, more like a showcase of what store have to offer, but instead of seeing them on models, you can try them on yourself and get tons of girls feedback. It would function just the way CovetedList does online!

Let us know your feedback and suggestions!

Happy summer festivities!

Coveted Gator: Beccah Clark

Your new Coveted Gator has style that stands out in a crowd of monotony in everyday fashion. While Beccah admits that taking fashion risks can lead to utterly "ridiculous outfits," she also believes that you have to take risks if you don't want to mesh with the crowd around you.

Beccah embraces a punkish-feminine style and her favorite part of creating outfits is mixing harsh elements with softer ones to create that element of uniqueness. She looks for inspiration from cutting-edge designers like Alexander McQueen who turn fashion into an art form, yet she loves the classics that every girl adores by Marc Jacobs. Her everyday shopping stops include Zara, Urban Outfitters, and Topshop (online).

The Big Apple is where Beccah chose to spend her spring break away from UF - and she has had plenty of fashion exposure on her trip! "I'm here right now and you can walk down the street and never see the same outfit twice."

While she may not be sporting a bikini in NYC, Beccah describes her ideal spring break outfit as a classic solid bikini paired with a patterned coverup and gold strappy sandals. Tanning may not be in the picture, but shopping is. Beccah expressed her excitement in the new spring trends and is hunting for tiered florals, pastel colors and denim dresses as she searches the city.
