Meet Sarah Knowles

Posted By on Wed, Mar 31, 2010 at 8:30 AM

Rhodes College sophomore Sarah Knowles began college as a business major, because she wanted to go into fashion. She quickly realized, however, that the practical business major wasn't for her.

Now she's majoring in English Literature and minoring in Studio Art.

But that doesn't mean she's lost her interest in fashion or style or her dream of being in the fashion business.


In this outfit, she combines black leather Michael Kors boots — a present from her mom — jeans, a tank from Urban Outfitters, a black long-sleeve button down, and a faux fur coat.

But let's talk about the jeans, which Sarah says are very comfortable.

"I would probably wear them everyday if the fabric wasn't so thin. They're starting to wear out," she says.

I know what you're thinking: Of course they're starting to wear out, they have holes in the knees.

"The holes are intentional," Sarah says. "I did like them as they were, but I didn't really wear them very much until I made the holes, strangely enough. Now I basically wear them all year round!

"I must say, though, I do get tired of people asking if I fell down or if I was attacked by an animal or something. The best is when my grandma says, 'Oh, you poor thing, tell your mother to get you some new pants.'"

I get it: Sometimes your knees just have to be free. Frankly, that was basically my motto in high school.

On another note, just between you and me, I think we're going to be learning a lot about layering this week. Stay tuned.
