Wednesday afternoons are more exciting when spent with the team from Curtsy UGA. Curtsy’s Instagram Manager, Kelly, and I had a rad time hanging out in downtown Athens and shooting at Wuxtry Records on Clayton Avenue.
In case you aren’t familiar with Curtsy, it’s an app that lets you rent dresses, rompers, and tops from women in your neighborhood. According to Kelly, this is Cursty’s second year on the University of Georgia’s campus and the app has expanded to over sixty college campuses! Be sure to download the app here.
The streets of downtown Athens, Georgia are filled with life and whimsy. From speciality boutiques, one-of-a-kind restaurants, numerous bars, and other random retailers—such as record stores, vintage shops and even a retro pharmacy—Athens provides such a fun atmosphere. As a UGA student, it is quite easy to fall in love with this little Georgia town. My past two years here have been incredible and part of me is starting to grow sad that I only have two years left in this unique place.
With the shift from August to September and the quickly dropping temperatures, I found it appropriate to fish out my brown suede skirt from the back of my closet. Paired with a simple black v-neck, black Steve Madden slip-on sneakers and, of course, some layered jewels, I am ready for any fall weekend.
No matter where you are spending your weekend, be sure to get out and explore. Discover some new music in record shop (like I recently did), go apple picking, get tickets to a local concert or relax in an eclectic coffee shop— the possibilities are endless!
