When we see you on the street and think you put some thought into your style, we may take your picture and ask you things. We call it Street Style. See previous renditions here.
Earlier this week, in honor College Week, we wandered over to SMU to check out what the college students are sporting during their first week back to school. While most students were donning T-shirts and flip-flops, a few flashier folks caught our eye, so we snapped their pics and asked them a few questions.
