TWO DAYS AGO,  I got word that I was accepted to University of Kentucky's Masters program for French! So, needless to say, I was and still am very happy.  Therefore, in a few months, I will be moving to Lexington, Kentucky to become a wildcat...
But for now, I am going to run with this collegiate theme and finally post vintage photos that have been sitting in my blogger-draft for 8 months now. Prep is in and a new fad is fascination with Ivy style and collegiate looks. Therefore, all of these photos have been circulating around the blogosphere. First here we have photos from TAKE IVY, a book by the Japanese photographer T.Hayashida that released in Japan in the 1960s (Japan was fascinated by American Ivy League style):
Then, I have photos from the Vasser College Flickr Achives that I found via Miss Moss. This is what I envision  when my grandma tells stories about her all-girl school college days at Steven's in Missouri.

Lastly, I have photos from the Poughkeepsie Regatta Intercollegiate Rowing Association which I found through a lovely blog by a French guy obssessed with American prep style, Green Sleeves to the Ground

So there you have it. Some collegiate news followed by collegiate vintage photos and style!
