Fashionista Spotlight

If you have been reading CollegeFashionista for a while now, this Fashionista might seem familiar. Christine Nguyen was approached last year by a previous Style Guru and the one thing that I thought of was how one’s style can change within a year. Style is always evolving. I don’t know about you, but I am influenced by multiple things when it comes to fashion. Fashion bloggers, art, movies and fashion designers. Oh, and of course Fashionistas that I find on CollegeFashionista.


Name: Christine Nguyen

Major: Advertising and Public Relations

Year: Sophomore


CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where did you get it from?

Christine Nguyen: The dress I got from Forever 21. I think I got it from a clearance rack. I am wearing a denim vest. I bought it from a thrift store, but I believe it was originally from the Gap. I am wearing black tights. I really like tights for the fall. Right now I am on a pants protest and I am seeing how far I can go into the fall without wearing pants. I am wearing ankle rain boots that I actually got from Target.

CF: When you go shopping in a store, do you normally go straight to the clearance rack to find the best deals?

CN: Yeah, when I shop I generally go to the back of the store first. You can find all the goodies there for really cheap. Next, I move up to the front because if I start in the front, that is where I would blow all of my money!

CF: Are most of your outfits budget friendly?

CN: Kind of. I kinda feel like I am always a season behind, but then I work it into what I will be wearing now.

CF: Is there a movie that you like that may influence your style?

CN: Movie wise do not normally influence my style. I usually follow fashion bloggers like Karla’s Closet.  She is my favorite. She has a blogspot. Then there is Pinterest!
