10 Things You Need to Know About DLSU Fashion
When you're walking in between classes, just one look around and you'll see the different styles and outfits that easily capture just how diverse the students in DLSU are. With thousands of students in the campus, there's also a ton of fashion personalities that can be seen. That's why we're here to give you the lowdown on all the things you need to know about DLSU fashion!
Our dress code policy basically eliminates shorts in our wardrobe.
All DLSU students know that to be able to wear shorts inside campus, it'd have to be at least three inches longer than the tip of your longest finger when your arms are resting on the side. So basically, it's better to just wear jeans that to be stopped by the guard before you could enter the campus.
Same goes for skirts!
Thinking of wearing that new short skirt that you bought? Nope. You wouldn't want to risk the chance of being sent to the DO right?
But somehow, others manage to get through.
You ask yourself, "How did they get in campus wearing that?" Maybe it's because the guards just stopped caring or maybe they pulled some sort of magic, but either way, you go, girl!
With the strict dress code policy in DLSU, basically anything that will show off your shoulders or any inch of skin is a huge no-no. How will we ever wear our cute off shoulders for the summer now?
Cardigans are life savers!
Want to rock that cute new cami you bought last Sunday? Then a cardigan is your one-way ticket to enter the campus while wearing your new tank.
Flips-flops are forbidden inside campus so no matter how lazy you are in picking a shoe that will match, flip-flops are definitely out of the question!
When you're a frosh, the world is your oyster.
Being a froshie in DLSU (or any university for that matter), you're ready to pull out all the stops and bring your A-game when it comes to dressing up. It's a totally different scene compared to high school where you had to wear your uniform every day.
Seniors have been there, done that.
If you're in your third, fourth, or even fifth year in DLSU, you've seen and done it all already! You're more relaxed now and you're done with planning your outfits the night before for the entire term!
There is no runway!
During your LPEP days, you're told that SJ walk is basically the runway of the campus. You'll realize later on that is not really true. Students won't really stop and stare at what you're wearing and you won't really feel like you're walking on a runway when you're running late for class!
You'll find some of the most fashionable people in campus.
If you just stop and take a good look at all the students passing by, you'll realize that Lasallians sure know how to dress up! You can even take fashion cues from some of the people passing by. You just need to look!
How about you? What's your school's fashion personality?

I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
