Fashion: It's

all in how you hold your Slurpee

It was the very first day of spring,
and I was riding in a car with Jeff
Slosar to the Briarwood mall. I had
no idea who he was.
"Did you really close your eyes
and pick my name out of the direc-
tory?" he asked.
I nodded my head. I wasn't
sure he understood. As columnist for
Weekend Magazine, I had an obliga-

tion to write about fashion this
week. Problem was, I don't know the
first thing about it. Cosmopolitans
do not grace my coffee table, and
Mom still buys most of my clothes.
For the past five years, I have worn
virtually nothing but solid colored V-
neck sweaters, oxford shirts, slacks,
dress socks, and penny loafers.
I have not worn blue jeans since

the eighth grade.
I figured, nobody could be more
ignorant on the subject than myself.
Anyone would have to know more.
So I opened the student directory,

says 'keeping up with the styles of
the time.' It also says that fashion is
the way you cary yoursel"
"'The way you cawy yourself'?" I
said. "I don't think I've ever thought
of 'fashion' that way befhre."
"You ever had a Slurpee before?"
he asked.
"Maybe. I'm not sure."
"Tur into Sears" he ordered.
Apparently, accoding to Jeff, one
of the ways to"cay yourself" and be
fashionable is to drink Slurpees.
Now, the first thing I want to say
about Jeff isthat be is a very amiable
guy who bubbles with enthusiasm.
The second thing I want to say about
Jeff is that all he knows about fash-
ion can be neatly tucked into a
Swatch.

closed my eyes and...
"I've been thinking a lot about'
fashion since you called me the other
night," Jeff said. "I looked up
'fashion' in the dictionary, and it

CJefl how would you characterize
women's fa hion at Michigan?"
"Yon mean for the summer?"
"Sure."
"Oh,just shorts and everything."
"What did you say your major
was again?"
"gieering pyis.")
Make that a ladies Swatch.
No matter. He still knows more
than Ido. He explained to me what a
"banana clip" was when I called him
on the phone and after that I asked
him to came alng with me. I needed
someone to interpret all the fashion
lingo. I also needed his help because
I wanted to buy something. I've been
listening to the whispers from friends
and colleagues that I am not "the
hippest dresser in the world" and
shouldchangemyattreabit. Maybe
they are right.SoI was there to buy
one article of clothing. Something
"hip" and "with it."
But frst, the SIrpees.
"Al, ah! See this! This is fash-
ion!" Jeff said as the lady behind the
refreshment center at Sears gave us
two Slurpees. He pointed to the
clear, plastic round bubble which
serves as the top for the drink. "A
' xkie dome,'" he explained. "Never
get the 'rookie tarp' (flat-top plastic
covering) because it takes away from
the surface area. We're actually get-
ting more for our money with the
'dome.'
Ihadnoiea whatthis had to do
with fashion, but he knew more
about itthan I di,soIjustsucked
on my straw and looked down into
the bubble. Suddenly, it occurred to
me: he was right. You do get more
for your mney with the dome.

the whole.
With the return of 1960 styles and
fashions comes a prominence of eth-
nic accessories, which - while ex-
pensive, since the majority are im-
ports, are incredibly fun to pile on.
The possible combinations of beads,
bracelets, anklets, necklaces, earings,
scarves, and sarongs are limitless.
Straw hats, for both men and

women, are also a bundle of fun,
though short-lived fun. The average
wearing-life of a straw hat has got to
be under one month. At the most.
They're just so crushable.
So when the daily stresses and
pressures of life start to hit you
from every side, don't get down, just
get even.
"Just look stress straight in the eye
and say 'lookin' good, feelin' good,"'
laughed School of Art sophomore
Gail Shusterman.
