My name is Celeste Tallarico and this will be my third and final semester with CollegeFashionista since I will be graduating in May from Fairfield University in Connecticut. I’m a journalism major with a minor in marketing and recently I’ve discovered my true passion lies in advertising. I was born and raised on Long Island, New York and having lived so close to New York City all my life, I definitely feel as though the mixture of classic with eccentric has influenced my style.
My personal philosophy on life is people are a direct product of his or her environment. We are influenced by where we live and whom we surround ourselves with. Similarly, I like to think our styles are not only a direct product of our environment but also a reflection of who we are as a person. I feel that exploring different styles and trends, and adding your own personal twist to them is important in the development of an individual’s style.
In which case, I think my style is eclectic. I like to mix and match, steal from the boys and look backwards at style icons of the past particularly Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O, and forward to some of my style icons of today including Ashley Olsen and Jennifer Lawrence in particular.
I’m very excited to extend my stay once again with the CollegeFashionista family for a third time and I look forward to reporting from Fairfield’s campus.
