My name is Gloria Vazquez and I’m a spring 2013 Style Guru for San Diego State University.
My style is that of a beachy-chic Fashionista. My taste is unique and glam, with a color preference that includes the red and blue spectrums; from pastel pink to deep red, to turquoise and peacock blue, to violet and deep purple. I like to accessorize with contrasting colors such as white, gold and silver. I am also a fan of big dangly earrings in a variety of textures and materials; from precious metals, to beads, to feathers — in a variety of shapes. The more imaginative and creative the better! I also find that cute shoes and purses round-out my outfits from casual and fun, to more flashy and glamorous — depending on whether I’m catching some sweet rays at the beach or hanging out with friends at a night out on the town. I am currently enrolled as a Marketing major with a Public Relations minor, and I foresee myself pursuing careers in fashion merchandizing, fashion public relations, or promotion of the American fashion industry.
My current fashion crush for this season has been the high-low top which has been very popular in many beachside boutiques around southern California. They come in a variety of fabrics; with or without sleeves, in tie dye, parti-block and other imaginative patterns. This fashion trend is perfect for any occasion and you can enhance your look by rocking some Ray-Bans and Vans, or a bright accessory to add a splash of color to your ultra beachy and vacation looks. I always keep an eye out to find unique pieces that I can creatively use to illustrate a style of my own.
I’m so excited to be writing for the Fashionista Spotlight this spring for CollegeFashionista and I’ll be keeping an eye out to spot all the fall trends and challenges that await us.
