2009. 09. 10.
CALDWELL – College of Idaho junior Michelle Locke from Eugene, who has been reading, writing and blogging about fashion for several years, has been chosen from among 200 applicants as one of 10 writers for CollegeFashion.net, a fashion blog.
In announcing Locke's selection, CollegeFashion.net said Locke "loves writing, vintage shops, poetry readings, and scrapbooking, Michelle knows style on a budget and will show you how to navigate the thrift shops to get a fabulous vintage-inspired look without spending a lot."
Locke, a creative writing major, said she had just started following CollegeFashion.net when the ad for internship opportunities was posted.
"I immediately applied because it was exactly the kind of thing I was looking for," she said.
Locke said she is looking forward to providing information to thousands of other college students about good deals and expanding their personal style.
"I'm into the idea of sustainable fashion – that is, not necessarily buying everything new and not just throwing clothes away when they get 'old' or the trend passes," she said. "But I also just want to educate CF readers and make sure they feel great about themselves and their personal style."
