Hi everyone! My name is Allison Lau, and I am a sophomore at Stonehill College, majoring in marketing with a focus in international studies. Hopefully I’ll find a job someday that will take me out of the miniature town that I call home. I’m from Montpelier, Vermont, and for those of you who are already confused—yes, it’s an actual state. It’s just in the middle of nowhere. If you’re from the boonies like I am, you also understand that fashion isn’t very prominent in everyone’s day to day lives. Sometimes I still get confused about how my love for fashion evolved. I mean, Vermont isn’t really known for its well-dressed citizens. Then again, when you’re an extremely bored child living in the wilderness, playing dress up might be played a few times here and there.
Somehow this small town girl landed an internship at CollegeFashionista. Now, I’m excited to announce that this will be my second semester with CollegeFashionista. I couldn’t resist giving up another chance to capture photos of fashionable college students and writing about their style. Fashion is my life, and I honestly could not imagine a day without it. Surprisingly, my internship this past summer was actually more difficult than you would think. Considering where I live, most people usually stick to their dirt stained jeans, T-shirts and Birkenstocks or muck boots. This time around, I’ll be taking photos of students at my college. It’ll be much more exciting and maybe even difficult to choose who I take photos of. I’ll have such a great selection.
Today’s outfit was particularly hard to decide on. I’m used to taking photos of other stylish beings, but today the spotlight was on me. I absolutely love choosing outfits to wear every day, but when I’m asked to choose an outfit that especially represents me, it’s quite difficult. I don’t really like to stick to one style, but if there’s anything that will always stay the same, it’s the color black. Black is my favorite color and always will be. As you can see in this photo, I’m wearing nearly all-black. I’m wearing a black cocktail dress by J.Crew and some black strappy heels by Nine West. I always love to blast my outfits with accessories. For example, I’m wearing simple diamond studs, a chunky diamond necklace and a gold studded belt.
I can’t wait for this wonderful next chapter of CollegeFashionista to begin!
