Style Stop: Ellen Monroe

Last modified: Thursday, November 21, 2013

Ellen Monroe, a Smith College student, was about to grab pizza downtown when the Style Stop team spotted her. Monroe’s cool, casual clothes were befitting of a busy college student, but the personal touches she included created a look that was uniquely hers.


Style Philosophy: I have to be able to go on an impromptu adventure in my outfit.

Green Mountain fashion: I spent a lot of summers in Vermont, so I always have to make sure that (my outfit) would pass a Vermonter’s standards.

Shopping Spots: I shop online a lot .... at ASOS, H&M, even Old Navy has good basics, flea markets, thrift stores, my grandma’s closet.

Family T-shirt: I got this shirt as a gift from my aunt, and then I cut the sleeves off. I really like it.

Special Jacket: It’s pretty threadbare, but I keep getting new ones and none of them match up. I have all sorts of paint marks and memories on it.

Felt patch: This is actually a showing of solidarity because I work for Divest Smith College. We’re trying to get Smith to withdraw the part of their endowment that they have invested in the fossil fuel industry.

Necklace: My grandpa makes jewelry in his spare time ... so I kind of grew up around tools. I found this antler in his basement and was like, ‘Can I cut this off?’ He helped me out.
