Growing up going to the Macy’s department store, I always tried on the highest heels and all of the jewelry the department store had to offer. You can imagine a toddler walking around sporting high heels six sizes too big. I can honestly say that is where my obsession with accessories, clothes and anything having to do with fashion came to be.
My name is Delaney Spetnagel and I am an incoming freshman at the University of Cincinnati. Growing up in a small town in southern Ohio most people didn’t quite understand the term “fashion,” let alone who or what is Michael Kors. I am ready for a taste of the fast lifestyle a big city has to offer. Since I was young I have been itching to be in a big city with the first opportunity I received. Being in a city will give me so many chances to branch out and give me more freedom to express my style.
Even though I have always had a very unique style and such a passion for clothing, I also have a wide variety of style. One day I could rock a pair of gym leggings and a Nike workout tank and the next day be wearing a Ralph Lauren polished oxford button-up and my favorite Abercrombie & Fitch jeans. Neutrals are my thing, anything that is black, white or gray I fall in love with. You can mix and match neutrals so easily with anything and are very handy to have in your closet and you can never have enough.
Accessories are my favorite things about fashion. I love dressing up a casual outfit with that right piece of jewelry (hence why I love neutrals). You will never catch me without my favorite Fossil watch on my wrist and a pair of earrings in my ears. Without jewelry I feel like an outfit is nothing. An outfit without jewelry is like a car without wheels, and you can’t go anywhere like that.
This is my first semester with CollegeFashionista and I am ecstatic to be writing and taking photographs for the ACCESSORIES REPORT every Friday! I’m excited for you all to experience this journey with me into a “new world” as my style expands from what I know to what I will learn in Cincinnati. See you on campus!
