Today’s Fashionista had students doing a double-take as she walked around campus with this amazing vintage-inspired ensemble. Rocking the bright pink lips and golden blonde curls, I just had to get the scoop on her style inspiration and advice.
Name: Jasmine Tolbert
Major: Gender and Women’s Studies
CollegeFashionista: Tell me about what you are wearing.
Jasmine Tolbert: Today is a special day because I’m actually doing a presentation on The Golden Girls. That is why I decided to wear this floral top that I bought from a thrift store and these navy high-waisted pants. I got my wedge pumps from Payless ShoeSource and my jewelry from Forever 21.
CF: Where do you get your style inspiration from?
JT: I follow a lot of Style Gurus on YouTube who shop at consignment shops. I am inspired by what they buy and how they style themselves that I just take what I see and reinvent my own vintage look.
CF: What is one item in your closet that you can’t live without?
JT: I cannot live without my high-waisted shorts. I buy a lot of jeans from thrift stores and I cut them up and craft them to fit my style.
CF: What do you look forward to wearing this summer?
JT: I definitely want to play with some neon colors. I follow this girl on Instagram and she has inspired me to flare up my wardrobe for summer with some floral patterns, neon and gray color schemes.
CF: If you had an unlimited amount of money what would you buy and why?
JT: I would buy an island for my mom. She means the world to me and she deserves it.
CF: Do you have any advice you would like to share for our Fashionista/os out there?
JT: Be bold and go for it! A lot of times, we get scared to try new looks because we feel that it’s too much or we look funny. I say if you can rock it then go for it no matter your shape or size.
How To: To look spectacularly golden like today’s Fashionista hit your closest thrift store for some high-waisted pants. Next, you need a floral top and you must tuck it in into your high-waisted pants for the perfect golden girl effect. Add the finishing touches with some statement jewelry like a chunky chain necklace and a pair of wedge pumps. Remember to “be bold and go for it!”
