Fashionista Spotlight

People at the University of Alabama know Destiny Farrow. If not personally, people know her as the girl with blue hair that longboards to class. I know her as the Fashionista I've been dying to talk to. She was spotted this week rocking an all black and white ensemble, complete with full-length pea coat and faux leather leggings. Her outfit perfectly highlighted her bold hair color by keeping her outfit sleek and modern.

Name: Destiny Farrow

Year: Freshman

Major: Music

CollegeFashionista: Where do you get your style inspiration?

Destiny Farrow: The inspiration for my style solely comes from my Tumblr account and whatever I find on sale or at decent prices.

CF:  You seem very fashion forward. What is your take on personal style?

DF: To me, fashion is your sense of creativity and expression through clothing with different layering combinations. I believe that you should always feel unique. Standing out is so much more fun than blending in!

CF:  What inspired your blue hair? Are you a risk-taker when it comes to clothes too?

DF: To be honest, I changed my hair color because I like to make drastic changes that effect everything. When I first dyed my hair, people couldn't help but give me strange looks, some people were even afraid to look too hard because they felt like it would be rude. I knew what I was getting into by making such a drastic change. Yes it was a huge style risk, but I was more than up for the challenge.

CF: Where did you get your coat?

DF: I purchased my coat from Rue 21.

CF:What stores best reflect your personal style?

DF: My favorite stores are definitely Urban Outfitters, Earth Bound Trading Company and PacSun. I also love anything I can salvage from thrift stores to add a little flare to my outfit and to recycle things that have potential!

How To: Although this Fashionista's hair is her best accessory, it is her and simple black and white accoutrements that make her outfit just perfect. Faux leather leggings are a great way to get on the fall trend bandwagon without putting a major dent in your wallet. Neiman Marcus and BCBGMAXAZRIA both have versions of the trendy pant. Her winter white peacoat is one timeless piece every girl should own. It adds a touch of Jackie O to her edgy look. Vince Camuto and Miss Sixty have two different styles of a winter-white coat perfect for any Fashionista's fall/winter wardrobe.
