Fast Fashion vs. Luxury Brands

Disclaimer: I am an average college student with an average college student budget and is aware of possibly sounding like a snobby, elitist fashion blogger. This post is a reflection of my own opinions and not the rest of the 6100 Main team.
Whenever I give brand suggestions and pick out clothes for other people, I usually try to stay in the lower end of the market: Forever 21, Target, H&M, Aldo, and occasionally Urban Outfitters, Zara, Topshop, etc. Other affordable brands include Charlotte Russe, Papaya, A'gaci... you get the idea. All of these brands share the same concept: mass produced fashion that quickly rotates in and out, inspired by high fashion houses like Givenchy or Chanel, made possible by cheap labor in sweatshop factories and a compromise in material quality and craftsmanship. The term for this is fast fashion; these are all fast fashion brands. 
On the other hand, there are those brands that cost a month's worth rent or maybe a kidney or two, and go by F/W o…

DIY: Workout Tank

Wondering what to do with your old Beer Bike shirts? Stuck with leftover College Night tees? Why not turn them into workout tanks---perfect to wear to the gym while you're working toward that swimsuit body.



Start with an old t-shirt (the bigger the shirt, the baggier the fit of the tank.

1) Cut from under the arm holes to the shoulder. Make sure the actual "straps" are cut straight (although you can customize their placement and width). Now, make a u-shape from one side of the collar to the other. The deepness of the U can depend on how much of the print on the front that you want to preserve. Lastly, cut the bottom seam off; the cut can be wider in the middle of the shirt (especially if you want a cropped fit in front).

2) Turn the shirt over and make the racerback shape skinnier by cutting out more of the sides.

3) Take the extra cut-off from the bottom of the shirt and slice it into one long strand.

4) Using this strand, tie a knot at the top of the racerback, where you wa…

Most Loved Pieces This Fall

HI everyone!

Now that we're starting our second round of midterms and well into the Fall Semester, Thu and I thought we would share some of our most loved trends this fall. Except Houston's weather is so warm it's still basically summer... Hope you enjoy!
Julia I've gotten really into structured and oversized fits this season, so this is pretty much the epitome of that. I love to pair oversized pieces with even more oversized ones, just so I can get that lewk without trying much at all. These pieces are all pretty minimal, so if you see me around campus I'll probably be in at least one of these pieces here. Coincidentally, the whole outfit is from Aritzia - I highly recommend checking their website out!  - but culottes and oversized tops are so on trend now, I'm pretty sure you can find similar pieces at H&M, Zara and even Forever21.
