My name is Ali Stagnitta, I’m a sophomore at George Washington University and I am so happy to be continuing my work with CollegeFashionista! I’m back and writing for WHAT TO WEAR and could not be more excited to bring you the best street style looks for every occasion.
I’m a Journalism/Mass Communications major at GWU, concentrated in broadcast fashion and entertainment news. My goals in life are to take Giuliana Rancic’s job and marry Ryan Gosling, but if that doesn’t happen then I’ll settle for just working at E! News. I’m inspired by everyday life, just walking through Georgetown, the National Mall and on campus. I try to find beauty in everything, which is why fashion, the most expressive, beautiful thing in the world, is my passion.
For every STYLE GURU BIO I try to write about a different piece of my fashion inspiration, but today, I’m going to write about you. You are my fashion inspiration. When I walk down the streets of D.C., NYC and Philly, I’m starstruck by your individual looks and the incredible fashion that occurs right on a college campus. It is you that makes my work at CollegeFashionista fun and educational. Without you, there wouldn’t be a weekly post or an influx of readers trying to catch the latest trends on their campus. You are my muse in your leather leggings, fur vests, wedge sneakers or Jeffrey Campbell boots.
Fashion guru and motivational speaker Gabrielle Bernstein wrote, “Fashion is a form of self-love.” To kick off this New Year, I have pledged to dress myself everyday in clothing that makes me feel good in my skin. So what if people stare? Fashion is about you and that is what matters. Challenge yourself to dress for you everyday, not for anyone else but your own happiness. That is a pure love of fashion.
Be sure to check back every Thursday to find the perfect looks for specific occasions. You’ll never have to worry about what to wear to your first date or sorority function again!
