STYLE GURU BIO: Lucy Vanellis

Style Guru Bio

My name is Lucy Vanellis and I am more than thrilled to be interning with CollegeFashionista this summer! I will be coming at you weekly with STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK from Temple University in Philadelphia, so watch out and if you see me around campus, don’t be shy!

Who am I, you may ask? Well, I am a blonde (we do have more fun) girly girl with a love of art. I can’t walk by a dog on the street without petting it and I am most likely to jump out of my car to save a turtle crossing the road. You can find me using a hairbrush as a microphone and belting out Broadway musicals in my room or attempting to sing along with Iggy Azalea in the car on my way to work. I wish I could wear ballet flats or Steve Madden sandals every day because I can promise you that if there is a stiletto near this girl, your next stop will be the hospital. I would describe my style as ever-changing, but if it has ruffles, lace or twirls, it’s probably in my possession. In my closet you will find anything from Forever 21 basics to Ralph Lauren and J.Crew doo-dads hanging next to my prized red Barbour rain jacket (possibly inspired by Red Coat from Pretty Little Liars).

I just returned from Italy, where I was studying photography for the past four months!

Being surrounded by so many European Fashionistas/os had me scouring the streets for the next big thing. Now that I am back in the states, I decided that interning with CollegeFashionista would be the perfect way to combine my love affair with photography and my obsession with fashion!

The goal is to wake up every morning from my apartment in New York City, stop by a Starbucks, pick up my routine Caramel Macchiato and waltz into work at Vogue in the photography studio.

Though I have a long way to go, I am so pumped to be with the CollegeFashionista team and I am more than excited for this summer’s latest trends! Be sure to check my STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK column weekly and stay trendy!
