My name is Kelsey Roadruck and I have just finished my first year at Indiana University where I am studying journalism and informatics. I am very excited to be a contributing Style Guru for CollegeFashionista this summer. Every Thursday you will find my suggestions on WHAT TO WEAR, in which I will be reporting advice on fashion choices for each and every occasion.
Although we all wish it did, fashion isn’t a concept that comes easy to everyone. I surely didn’t develop my fashion signature until my senior year of high school. It was then that I discovered the art of thrift shopping. In the last couple of years, thrift shopping has become a highly significant part of my life. Now, I love bringing retired items back to life. I see thrift shopping, and fashion in its entirety, as a major creative outlet and a way to express myself. Creating a reflection of yourself through your fashion choices can be difficult but rewarding and all it takes is a little exploration. You’ll find that becoming a Fashionista/o is all about trial and error, proof of which you’ll find in your junior high yearbook.
As for my personal style, it changes more than Indiana weather (which is more often than you would believe). I love trying new trends and styles. From edgy to feminine, my closet has a little bit of every look. Despite my ever-changing wardrobe, I do have a few staples in my closet. Some of these include button-down blouses, collared tank tops, rompers and high-waisted shorts. I also believe accessories are always a must. I love wearing gold and pearl jewelry as well as decorative headbands.
I can’t wait to see what CollegeFashionista brings to my fashion perspective and writing. I think being a Style Guru will allow me to reach out of my comfort zone, as I have never pursued fashion reporting before.
