Hi there, fellow fashion lovers! My name is Greta Edgar and I am currently in my junior year at Saint Vincent College, studying public relations, advertising and marketing. I find that fashion can be a huge component of all of these professions, since the clothes you wear are a great way to market and brand yourself. Fashion offers all individuals a chance to show their personality in a unique way. I can’t wait to share my love of style with you all over the course of the semester.
I have always had a keen eye for subtle detail, which is why I am delighted to be writing the “ACCESSORIES REPORT” column this spring. When it comes to my own style, I am a lover of all classic fashion and I adore anything chic and feminine. If it involves ruffles, polka-dots, bows or stripes, you can probably find it in my closet. My wardrobe consists mostly of these adornments, along with simple patterns and bold colors. I tend to go for a more classic, polished look. However, I do appreciate and, sometimes, deviate to a more indie-style, consisting of florals and loose-fitting items. I love pieces and brands that can transcend time and seasons. Kate Spade is one of my favorite designers, as the style is preppy and bright. J.Crew is also a beloved brand of mine because of the simple design and timeless silhouettes. My wardrobe staples include leather riding boots, wristwatches and gold accessories. Oh, and don’t forget the sock bun! I think this stems from taking 13 years of ballet classes.
Recently I have begun an endeavor to change my wardrobe for quality over quantity. It is fun to buy more expensive investment pieces and to see how I can mix them in with my current wardrobe. I look forward to incorporating these pieces in my professional wardrobe once I graduate. I secretly wish I could wear pencil skirts every day, or at least every other day.
Two of my absolutely favorite blogs are trashness and Bridget’s Own Diary. Personally, I love looking to blogs, books and magazines for outfit inspiration and for different perspectives; I plan on providing this for the CollegeFashionista readers. When in doubt, I always follow advice from Lilly Pulitzer: “Life’s a party, dress like it.”
