Imagine my reaction when I came across this week’s Fashionista. Actually, you don’t have to imagine it because I’ll tell you. So I’m getting out of my car like it’s no ones business when all of a sudden “Perfect Day” by Hoku starts blasting. Okay, not literally but it might as well have been. The second I saw this girl, I could tell she was a good time. The dress speaks for itself with its electric pattern and flowy shape. It’s the kind of dress that has its own personality, making it pretty difficult for just anyone to pull off. I wasted no time approaching her in fear she might jump in the back of a convertible and speed off into the horizon to some ’90s pop song. She was as fun to talk to as her dress implied and thankfully spilled the beans about where she purchased her entire get up.
Name: Jill Franco
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?
Jill Franco: I’m wearing a multi-colored dress from LF Stores, brown wedges from Steven Madden and a David Yurman ring.
CF: Where do you like to shop?
JF: Most of the time I shop at LF Stores, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21 and Tobi.
CF: Name one accessory or item of clothing you can’t live without.
JF: I’d have to say my light blue David Yurman ring. It goes with anything and it’s a classic so it’ll never go out of style.
CF: What’s your favorite season to dress for?
JF: I’d say summer because I love to wear colorful clothing. I also love floral patterns which are really “in” during that time of year.
How To: If you dare to be as bold as today’s Fashionista, aim for a colorful dress. You can find one almost anywhere this season but if you find you have some extra cash to spare, check out the NASTY GAL 2013 fall collection and splurge on the new Luminate Silk Dress. Pair the dress with some Steve Madded black wedges to dress up the look. Since the dress itself is very abstract, keep the jewelry to a minimum with a small stone ring from TOBI.
