Mas is my name, fashion is MY game!
Hello Fashionista/o, my name is Masoma Imasogie (Mas for short) and I am a first year student at The George Washington University in Washington D.C. I am working towards a major in Communications with a minor in Fine Arts. This is my first time writing for CollegeFashionista and I’m beyond excited to be a part of this fashion family and be named a Style Guru for this upcoming spring.
Fashion and photography have been my passions since I was eight-years-old. Here at CollegeFashionista, I will be combining my fashion and photography passions every Wednesday when I post under the FASHIONISTA/O SPOTLIGHT category! Since GW is located in a major city, the style around campus varies from preppy to hipster and formal business attire to “late-for-class” street chic. I’ve done it all and seen it all when it comes to fashion so I can relate to every type of Fashionista/o.
Personally, my style inspiration comes from different brands, more than different individuals. For example, I get in-touch with my California side and casual looks from Brandy Melville, Madewell, American Apparel and TOBI. My preppy apparel is bought at J.Crew and Zara, of course. My street/rocker-ish merchandise comes from Urban Outfitters, Topshop, Kitson, H&M and NASTY GAL. When all else fails, Pintrest, YouTube, and Instagram are my go-tos with quick fashion updates and “what-to-wea’s.”
That being said, high fashion is still on my radar, however, not as practical as the stores named above. One of my biggest tips is don’t be afraid to mix your cha-ching! I can be spotted all over town in a Zara blazer, Forever 21 tee, Urban skinnies and a Louis Vuitton tote. Today’s outfit that includes: a white Sugarlip, a black & white mixed American Apparel cardigan and high-waisted skinnies and J.Crew pumps, all topped off and sprinkled with a Panama Hat from Urban and AA/Cartier gold jewelry. That’s the beautiful thing about fashion and style, you just make it work for you and then you work it!
Everyone always says your job should be something you love so that it doesn’t feel like a job. Communicating with you all, “style-stalking” the streets of D.C and writing about fashion seems more like fun than a job to me. So come check out my FASHIONISTA/O SPOTLIGHT posts every Wednesday. Don’t be afraid to comment, interact, and share!
Oh, and if I see you on the streets, I might just snap your outfit for my next post!
