My personal style is an eclectic and funky mix of different styles, in conjunction with my own ideals. I like to wear a limited color wardrobe of 1950s pastel aqua and light pink, royal blue, black, and white. I love clean 60s mod silhouettes, and straight lines achieved from slim or skinny fit garments. My limited color palette and silhouette choice is kind of like the Teddy Boys of London, and is my personal fusion or retro and modern.
Working at New York City Fashion Week and actually meeting some of my favorite designers, as well as reading past designer’s biographies has greatly changed the way I feel about “Who” I choose to wear. I wear designers that I find to be interesting and good people. I love Yohji Yamamoto, Yves Saint Laurent, Vivienne Westwood and Coco Chanel, and I like to incorporate vintage accessories and garments from their collections into my daily outfits. Nothing feels better than wearing a great outfit, and knowing that the person that created the clothing or accessories in that outfit, were made by someone as wild and artistic as you feel.
I’m thrilled to be writing for CollegeFashionista because I’ve been writing since I was young, scrawling away in little fabric journals since age seven. As a freshman in college, I really began to fuse my fashion ideas with my writing in my own blog. I found writing in my own blog to be therapeutic activity, but I longed to write for an actual fashion journal. Writing for CollegeFashionista is a dream come true, and I love the street encounters of fascinating Fashionistas and Fashionistos.
