Cicada It-Girl: Eliza Mulherin

Growing up, I was never the loudest girl in the crowd. I started leaning towards fashion, and my own personal style to express myself, whether it be the hue of my dress to tell what mood I was in, or the funkiness of my shoes to let the world know I was feeling fun! I even asked for a sewing machine for Christmas in 7th grade, and attempted to make my own clothes (I failed miserably).  Fashion has allowed me come out of my shell and embrace my very own individuality.

I know there may be a detailed chart of what color to wear to the grove and when to wear it, but rules are made to be broken! The best way to allow your own fashion sense to stand out is to be different. You can absolutely never go wrong with a chic black ensemble and some thigh highs, and this outfit is the key to success. I’m not saying I make it my mission in life to never wear blue or red to a game, but if you cannot find a blue or red outfit, do not stress. If you have a killer outfit in the grove, no one is going to notice the color, they are going to notice YOU! I make sure to remind myself of this not only when I’m getting ready for a game day, but when I’m getting ready for anything!

My recent obsession is lip color. You used to have to pull teeth with me to try and convince me to wear lip gloss, or lipstick of any kind, until now. It can instantly add a fun pop of color and tie your entire outfit together. I am very big on the polished look, and with a crisp red lip you can’t go wrong!

My time at Ole Miss has flown by, how can I already be a senior?! In preparation for my first big girl job, I am trying to get all the experience that I can in speech pathology, my major. Over the summer I worked as an assistant reading specialist for Horizons, a summer enrichment program designed for underprivileged children and it changed my life! I also observe a local speech pathologist at Oxford Elementary, and that means I need a stylish yet professional outfit for my work days, which is exactly what I have on in this photo below!

What they don’t tell you about senior year is how difficult it is. The J.D Williams Library is constantly crowded, and finding a spot there rivals the struggles of commuter parking. So, my perfect getaway is The Shelter right off the square. I love to bundle up in a cozy sweater, grab a cup of coffee and get right to work!

One of Oxford’s many wonders is without a doubt, The Secret Grilled Cheese Bar (which may not be so secret after this post—oops!!). Secret Grilled Cheese is truly one of my favorite go-to spots after a night out. It sits tucked away on Faulkner’s Alley and has the charm of a 1920s speak easy but a menu you’d think was created by a five year old, but the sandwiches are delectable!!
