My name is Allie Waller, and I’m currently a sophomore at James Madison University in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to be writing the ACCESSORIES REPORT for College Fashionista this semester. I’m currently studying Media Arts & Design, Communications and Theatre, and I hope to one day have a career in advertising or public relations. I’m a leader and dedicated sister of Delta Delta Delta. I also have a huge love for theatre–I’ve been performing ever since I can remember.
I’ve always been a busy gal. In high school, I learned how to balance being on the cheerleading squad and being in the school musicals. After coming to JMU, not much has changed–I’m always on the go. Every morning I make sure that I’m comfortable, while still making a statement. I like to consider my outfits power outfits or outfits that keep me confident and trendy during the day, while also keeping me comfortable during those long nights at the library.
Growing up near Richmond, Virginia, I’ve gotten a lot of my fashion sense from people walking the city streets. I love bold, colorful statement pieces. I’d also consider myself a minimalist. When I go shopping, I look for simple pieces that could be paired nicely with statement accessories and my favorite pair of boots. I’m also a sucker for lace, glitter, bows and studs. I’d define my style as a mixture of preppy, girly, comfy and a little edgy. In my closet you’ll mostly find pieces from Express, Forever 21 and H&M.
I’m beyond excited to begin my journey as a Style Guru. I’ve always loved keeping up with the latest fashion trends, especially on campus. I’m so excited to bring you the latest trends from James Madison University!
