STYLE GURU BIO: Allison Ramirez

Style Guru Bio

Exactly one year ago, I was completely nervous, yet utterly excited writing my first post for CollegeFashionista. With three semesters as a Style Guru under my belt, I’m proud to say that it has been a truly incredible experience thus far. Through my daily hunt for savvy Fashionistas/os on campus, I’ve been able to share the inspirational campus style that catches my eye each day, which is a constant reminder of why I truly adore fashion.

It’s hard to say exactly when the love affair began, but it’s safe to say that I been in love with all things fashion since my days as a toddler (this does involve the kidnapping of several pairs of heels and countless fashion magazines, of course). I am a junior studying English and Communications with a divine love for coffee, wearing too much jewelry and any Barbara Streisand film I can get my hands on. Words cannot describe how thrilled I am to be a part of the amazing CollegeFashionista team once again!

As mentioned by one of my favorite bloggers, “You’ve got to dig to find what you really dig.” I couldn’t possibly think of a simpler way to capture my ever changing style (quite possibly with a mind of its own), but you’ll usually find me battling the South Texas weather in a pair of my favorite sunglasses and a vintage leather jacket. Over the years I have gone from printed combat boots to high-rise bell bottoms to Jeffrey Campbell platforms and then some how found myself sporting vintage sundresses with those very same boots. Nevertheless, I feel as we grow and our perceptions change, our clothing choices follow suit, which is the driving force behind my love for fashion. It is a constant presence that evolves everyday, capturing our innermost feelings and allowing us to dictate the image we project upon the world. It gives us the power to make a strike instantly, declaring who we are with a single glance.

I find fashion inspiration in a variety of different outlets; whether it be my most prized consignment shop, a 1960s film or, my personal hero, The Man Repeller. I must admit that some of my best discoveries, and undoubtedly those that lie closest to my heart, are those found at home on the Texas-Mexico border. I can’t wait to capture the fresh spring looks and killer street-style on campus this season through my WHAT TO WEAR column!
