Recently there has been a large increase in mocumentaries about the so-called “yahs” (or “rah” if you’re from South England). And then I chundered everywhere now has a massive following in St. Andrews. My flatmate and I decided we would embrace the trend and dress up for breakfast the morning. As we were leaving, we were told to “have fun on our gap yahs!”

Along those same lines, High Renaissance Man, as I’m told, might as well be a true story. For those who haven’t seen it, here you go:

Still interested? Here’s part 3:

Now to the point of this post: that Tetris remix is SICKKKK.
Here it is for all your listening pleasure:


No Mercy For The Warm by Dan

barbour+fur=canada goose

There are certain trends that manage to make their way into every St. Andrews student’s life. Barbours can be pretty stereotypical when it comes to St. Andrews (not to mention Hunters). More recently, fur has come into town like a wave of rabbits from New Hall’s front lawn. Even more recently, St. Andrews has seen a rise in what I consider to be a convergence of the two styles with a little goose down shoved in the middle. The Canada Goose jacket has become a staple in these winter months. I know there is rarely a day that I don’t consider wearing it just because it is so warm. Given, there are a few drawbacks of this style – namely its size – backpacks don’t work too well with these – but its plusses greatly outweigh its minuses on a bitter winter morning. There is no better feeling than being able to wake up in the morning, I’ll be honest, sometimes without a shirt, and be able to only need ONE layer when making the walk of shame (or glory) to North Point or Starbucks.

Red Boots by Elise

My mother once told me that when a woman needs to feel powerful she should wear boots. But I think every St. Andrews girl knows that boots are not just something you wear on a special occasion. They are a non negotiable necessity here. Everyone has their favorites. I like sturdy cowboy boots by Frye made in New Mexico, and our fellow writer, Sara, loves designer combat boots that roughen up her signature deconstructed silhouettes.

And this season, an apparently powerful accessory has met the traditional power color. Red boots are popping up all over the place. You might not think they’d go with the rest of your wardrobe, but check again. They give a playful kick to basically any outfit you’d choose. The bright, cherry red most designers have been putting out this season is very sweet girl sexy (after all, wasn’t that why the minister’s daughter from Footloose’s daddy didn’t want her to wear them?) Frye actually did a line of short, ankle elongating cowboy boots in a whole range of colors, but we’re still smitten with red. ¬†

We took a few pictures of girls around town in their red and rose pairs by Frye, vintage, and Ugg (top to bottom) paired with black tights. If true red is a bit much for you, maybe think about a mahogany or cherry-wood shade? Or you could always go with the Hunters.
