My name is Donna Castelblanco and I’m so excited to be with CollegeFashionista for my fourth semester. As Misericordia Head Style Guru, I will write pieces for the FASHIONISTO/A SPOTLIGHT column. Get ready to read about the awesome styles from northeastern Pennsylvania college students.
Although the sun is still shining bright, fall is just around the corner. I’m so ready to bring out my scarves, boots and chunky sweaters. The sunglasses, scarf and chunky sweater combination is my go-to fall outfit. Add a pair of combat boots and you are ready for Pennsylvania’s cool weather. Besides sweaters and scarves, I am continually experimenting with faux leather jackets and blazers. I truly believe every Fashionista should own at least one leather jacket and a blazer! I can’t wait to see how my weekly Fashionistas wear their fall outfits.
Many of them get fashion inspiration from magazines, shows or movies but most of my outfit ideas come from my daily blog roll. My top bloggers include Wendy’s Lookbook, Karla’s Closet, Snake’s Nest and Clothes Horse. These bloggers have such great style and always have a delightful story to tell. Along with my daily blog roll, I habitually read Refinery29, Free People’s Bldg 25 and, of course, CollegeFashionista. There are so many fashion websites and blogs; you should definitely check them out.
Fashion and all things related are a huge part of my life. Fashion has become even more important since I’ve been a part of the CollegeFashionista family! Good luck with your fall semester and remember to look out for my Fashionista/o Spotlight weekly reports this fall.
