Hello fellow Fashionistas! Congrats on finishing your first semester of the year! Now, on to the second. I’m Madeline Farina and I am a freshman at Kent State University. I’m majoring in Fashion Merchandising and this will be my very first experience as being a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista! To say that I’m excited for this would be a ridiculous understatement.
From a pretty young age, I’ve always had a strong opinion about fashion. Puffy dresses, for instance, were off the list for two-year-old me. I knew what I liked and insisted on keeping with my own rules of fashion. My outfits since then have been carefully thought out and thoroughly edited. To me, thinking of what to wear hours, days, or weeks in advance is just a fun past time. Can one really wear a cardigan over a jean jacket and pair it with high-waisted jeans? In my opinion, yes… yes one can. The way different pieces of clothing can work together is so exciting to me and I look for inspiration everywhere. That’s why I think CollegeFashionista is so perfect! I now get to document what I see and I couldn’t be more excited.
I’ll be writing a WHAT TO WEAR post every week and will be giving all of you the inspiration I find along my way to class, work or anywhere around campus! What I adore about my school is that so many people dress like they are walking around the streets of New York City when they are actually in the humble little town of Kent, Ohio. I cannot wait to share my experiences with you and learn about the fascinating world of blogging!
