The Ultimate Guide to Wearing a Chambray Shirt

Chambray and denim shirts have been popular for quite a few seasons now, and for good reason. They are, hands down, one of the easiest trends to wear. They’re also the glue that ties many other spring trends together (as you’ll see in this guide).

Personally, I’m a huge fan of the chambray. Some of my favorites are from J Crew (I have this one), Lauren by RL and Urban Outfitters.

More options…

However, I’m sad to see that many women have avoided purchasing a chambray because they’re just not sure how to wear them. That’s where I come in. Because one of the questions I get asked most often is how to pull off the chambray (or I get asked how to wear other things and the answer is always “with a chambray!”), I decided it was time to put together a guide. So here are my tips for wearing a chambray or denim shirt. Enjoy!

So if you add one thing to your wardrobe this spring, make it a chambray or denim shirt. In fact, make it two – because if you follow these tips for wearing yours, you’ll get so much use out of it that you’ll want to own both.

SLCC 2007 Education Track

September 9, 2007 1 comment

Last week the Buffalo News Link published an article “ Second Life Attendees Gather in Real World,” (9/3/07) about The recent Second Life Community Convention (SLCC2007)  August 24-26th, 2007 that was recently held in Chicago. I was disappointed to see that the primary focus of the article was on the “work hard – play hard,”  “large attendance,” and the “masquerade ball.” It was obvious to me that the article (and many articles articles on Second Life) are written by writers that appear only to have a narrowly focused real life (RL) perspective of what Second Life (SL) is about. There was no real mention of involvement of the SLCC2007 Business Track, the Machinima track or the Education tracks in the article.

As representatives from Buffalo State College, I went to the convention with the Associate VP of Library and Instructional Technology. I am the coordinator of the Fashion Textile Technology Program.  The presentation room was overflowing with interested educators; it was standing room only for the presentations. The atmosphere was open, sharing, and collaborative from educators working in a variety of disciplines from around the world. As an educator it inspired hope for the future of education on a global level. There was no sign of educational quagmire anywhere in the room! All educational disciplines were eager to explore linking possibilities or share information.We both presented there and links to the Proceedings to the entire Educational Workshop as well as individual links to our presentations are posted below. The preface as well as the varied educational projects in the proceedings puts the rapid growth and potential for building international educational communities Second Life in perspective.

  

One last note about the SLCC convention, the Sunday morning general meeting included a preview of Douglas Gayeton’s new documentary, “My Second Life: The Video Diaries of Molotov Alva.” The Machinima clip was really good and they announced that HBO picked up several episodes.
