Style Guru Bio

They say the third time’s a charm, right? I sure hope so! For those who don’t know me, I’m Jaleesa Key and I hail from Columbia College Chicago as a Head Style Guru! Exciting, right? This will be my third time on board with CollegeFashionista and who knows what’s in store for me! I can say my love for writing and photography have grown and improved so much as well as my overall interest in fashion. I have written for the WHAT TO WEAR and ACCESSORIES REPORT column. This semester, I will be bringing you some real and straight STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK.

My personal style is really conservative, but very chic at the same. I love having a simple but well-put together outfit. Some of my favorite places to shop would be my current workplace, Ann Taylor, and Express. Both of those retailers offer really nice pieces that I can buy and be very versatile with. Since the New Year has begun, I have been rocking a lot of neutral colors such as gray, black and white. Leather has always been apart of wardrobe as well (hence the leather trench and riding boots I’m wearing) because it’s super timeless and can put an edge to any look. I have always loved color and I don’t mind it popping out one of my outfits.

I’m a lover of accessories and beauty products with lipstick being my favorite. I live for a mean lip, okay? Since last semester, my lipstick collection has doubled in its size. I have my classic reds, hot pinks, and various hues of purple and even black. I’m very serious when it comes to my lipstick game. If you ever see anyone walking down the street with a blue lip, it’s probably me.

But nonetheless, I am looking forward to my semester with CollegeFashionista and I’m just ready to give it all I got. What about you?
