Every week, The Pioneer searches out Whitties who bring an extra splash of fashion consciousness and sartorial daring to campus. This week’s Style Spotlight: first-year biology major Anuradha Lingappa.

Style Soundbites

“My sweater––I got it from my grandmother’s basement, ’cause she was moving out of her old house and she’s kind of a shopaholic. My necklace I also got from my grandmother. We were in India last December and she bought it for me; it’s one of the Hindu gods, with a diamond in it. It’s Ganapati, who brings good luck––he’s the elephant-headed god.”

“My shoes are cowboy boots, and they’re technically my sister’s, but somehow I ended up with them. My earrings are giant plastic strawberries––they’re my sister’s again; I take a lot of my clothes from her. She made them and they’re very realistic; when she first made them, I was in sixth grade and I thought they were real. My glasses are Harry Potter glasses, but they’re prescription––because I’m just a dork.”

“I think I have a very eclectic fashion, because I just wear whatever I feel like wearing . . . for the most part, my interesting-nesses are usually my tights, because I really like brightly-colored tights. And then, I have a lot of strange earrings. Sometimes when I have more time, I try and think of a theme––like on Pottermore, I just got put in Gryffindor. I wasn’t expecting that, so I was kind of grumpy, but then I was like, ‘Well, maybe I should just embrace it!’ So a few days ago, I wore a bunch of yellow and red, because those are Gryffindor colors. And after ‘The Hunger Games’ came out, I was like, ‘Oh, I want to dress like people from that!’ So I tried to dress like Katniss one day, but I don’t think I really pulled it off.”

“I like sewing and I have like four dresses here that I’ve made . . . so that’s a thing.”
