Lately, I’ve been dedicating some of my time to reading a good novel and playing chess with a couple of close friends at the café. This month I finally decided to read Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. We have all heard the fantasy story of Alice, a young girl who falls in a rabbit’s hole where she later finds herself in Wonderland. Each character in the novel has unique characteristics that the reader can often relate to reality. The White Rabbit, one of my all time favorites, becomes an unforgettable character to readers because he is the one that sparked Alice’s curiosity in the beginning. As the White Rabbit passed by Alice in the beginning of the story, he doesn’t help to look at his pocket watch and check his time.
Like the White Rabbit, today’s Fashionista is always in a hurry to go to her classes and meetings. Thanks to time management, she is able to keep everything under control.
Name: Gaby Gomez
Major: Special Education
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing today?
GG: Well, today I am wearing something comfy. I decided to wear a Valerie Bertinelli blouse, with leggings and Cole Haan flats. My black watch is Peugeot. Since today was a nice, cool day, I wore my hair down.
CF: Do you like spring fashion?
GG: Yes. During this time I get to wear different types of dresses and skirts. Plus the colors are very sweet.
CF: How would you describe your personal style?
GG: I am not sure how to describe my personal style, but I think it is very comfy. I don’t like to use bright colors. I consider it to be basic, since I have lots of jeans and T-shirts. Recently I have become obsessed with leggings because they are so comfortable! Since I am walking everywhere on campus, I like to wear relaxing and fresh clothing.
CF: What influences your style?
GG: My mood and the hot south Texas weather are the major influences. Since I do have to walk back and forth from my apartment to the university, I prefer to wear sporty clothing or simply a pair of jeans and a cotton T-shirt to keep myself fresh. When I am in the right mood like today, I do make exceptions in wearing something nice like a pretty blouse. Also, if the weather allows it, I let my hair down and add a bit of makeup.
CF: What is one accessory you can’t leave without?
GG: My watch. I depend a lot on it because I need to keep track of time in order to be on time for my classes, jobs and school meetings. But to be honest, sometimes I have left it at home because it is stressful to constantly be checking the time. I want to enjoy my day relieved from stress.
CF: If you could have any celebrity’s wardrobe, whose would you want?
GG: I am not obsessed with Hollywood or celebrities, but I love my cousin Carolina’s wardrobe and fashions senses. I love her shoes! So, I would like to have her wardrobe and all her shoes!
How To: Get Gaby’s look by wearing a simple pair of flats with black leggings. Find a sleeveless button-up shirt from Tobi to go with the sunny mood. Match it with a hip lacquered Swatch to keep track of time.
