Style Guru Bio

My name is Irena Lam and I’m currently a sophomore business major at Western Washington University nestled in cozy Bellingham, Washington. I’m thrilled to be a Style Guru for you all these next few months!

Born and bred in the Pacific Northwest, I’m in love with warm and soft wooly fabrics, a fantastic cup of London Fog and beautiful views overlooking our neighboring Bellingham Bay. Comfort is my first priority when it comes to outfits so I’m drawn to the ease of black leggings, boots or flats and a soft colored sweater. But, like my picture indicates, I can never deny myself the luxury of an outrageous pair of heels. My fashion icons, ironically, all hail from sunny and warm California. The Olsen twins, Vanessa Hudgens and Miley Cyrus are all my Fashionista role models. I love their flawless boho ensembles and often take inspiration from them to try more patterns and colors as I often resort back to my trusty color palette: black, grey, navy and cream.

I love to accompany my stereotypical Seattle rain/Bellingham wind weather with a day cooped up in a warm coffee shop, my iTunes library and some endless scrolling on Tumblr. You can never soak in enough ridiculous GIFs, random musical gems and photography found on the internet.

I hope to bring a new Pacific Northwest flavor to as Western Washington University has some of the most unique, thrifty and edgy Fashionistas I’ve ever seen! Keep your eye out for more posts by me and my fellow WWU Style Guru, Emily.
