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.

Expecting Rain?

Don't let a little rain get you down on Spring Break 2010! Yes, you may have picked out the perfect swimsuit, but who says you can't rock it in a downpour? As long as you accessorize with cheerful rain-boots, your wardrobe will be complete. If sunshine and tanning were what you had in mind at least you can still keep your style in check with unique rain-boots. You can even find them at Target in bright colors and patterns for a steal! Unless that is, you prefer to make an investment for spring breaks to come with the flashy Coach boots.

So while a tan does seem to make clothes just instantly look better on you, if the option doesn't exist for you over break, just rock some rain-boots with edge instead!

CovetedGators: Addison Culler

Addison Culler is a second year PR major at UF. She was born and raised in North Palm Beach, FL. She began modeling at a fairly young age and would like to continue modeling after college. She can been seen walking Gainesville Fashion Week this spring!

She is heavily involved in SGP here on campus, supporting her love of music and entertainment, as well as a part of Ad Society and Zeta Tau Alpha.

Get to know this CovetedGator:

I always love shopping at the boutiques in Little Five Points in Atlanta, GA.

A couple of my favorite designers are Marc by Marc Jacobs, Emilio Pucci and Burberry Prorsum.

I absolutely love CovetedList. It is a great concept. Now I can have all of my friends join CovetedList and be able to show them what I'd love to buy without having to send links within an e-mail. Without a doubt I will be on the site daily.

My biggest shopping difficulty is deciding if I like something enough to buy it. I try to purchase things I am certain I will wear. Not getting it and waiting a day or two helps.

I online shop daily. But, I don't order much online but I like knowing what is new and it's great not being limited with the number of available stores.

My favorite trend:
I have always been obsessed with menswear. Throwing on a blazer or tie with an outfit will never be a mistake. I also love bright patterns on shorts or dresses.

What I'm looking forward to this season:
Dresses, skirts, shorts, swimwear! I adore spring fashion and cannot wait for Mother Nature to realize it's time for warmer weather.

My go-to piece:
A silk scarf or Juicy Couture knee high socks.

My style is most importantly original, but also confident, flirty, preppy and fun. I wear what I feel most comfortable wearing, based on my personality and obsessions. I never purchase something because it is in but whether or not I like feel comfortable in it. I like to give each outfit a little punch so I don't blend in. Wearing what feels right lets me shine, so I wear the clothes instead of the clothes wearing me.

My aspirations are to work for a fashion brand/company or a PR Firm. This is after I take a few years off to pursue modeling.

My Number one Wish List Item:
Diane von Furstenberg Harem Cover Up Pants in leopard print

Spring Break Attire

Spring Break is almost here Gator Girls! :)

Hopefully the weather will cooperate with us no matter where in the world we go, but I'm sure a lot of us are looking forward to flowy florals and cute bathing suits.

What are you looking forward to wearing most this Spring Break? We want to know! :)

Here are a few of our wish list items which can all be found at Victoria's Secret:
Aviators for those tanning days, great lacey coverups and cute floral sandals for walking around the pool, and swimsuits with fun details and great racerback styles.

Makes me want to pack my bags and head out the door right now!
