A New Yorker's Guide to Gainesville

FASHION

New York City, one of the biggest fashion-forward cities in the world, is filled with all different kinds of large department stores and also small boutique shops. Although Gainesville has a very laidback atmosphere, there are plenty of places where you can keep up with the most popular trends.

Wolfgang is a small boutique store located on University Avenue that always has the latest trends and styles for all girls! The prices are very reasonable and they always have great sales going on. They often host cocktail parties and different kinds of social and shopping events. These events have such a strong New York vibe that you feel like you could be right in the heart of SoHo.

This semester, the Delta Phi Epsilon sorority hosted an amazing event for the fashion-forward. The popular store LF located in major cities all over the country had a trunk sale at the sorority house showing off the new fall collection. Ten percent of all sales made went to the sorority's philanthropy benefiting Cystic Fibrosis, which made it even more amazing!

"I couldn't have been happier that LF had their trunk sale at our house," said Brooke Schwartz, a Sophomore from New City, New York. "It definitely made me feel closer to the trends from home, and even better that it was helping our philanthropy!"
