My name is Pooja Bhaskar and I am a Fashion Merchandising junior with a minor in Business at VCU. I had an amazing experience writing the accessories column last year, but after taking the semester off, I am thrilled to be joining CollegeFashionista once again!
When it comes to my personal style, I never have one straight answer. My current fashion guilty pleasure is fur and I am obsessed with lace and leather. My go to piece is my gold watch by Fossil but I love trying out a variety of looks and trends and I always keep an open mind to something new and daring. Overall I love wearing clothing that makes me feel feminine but with a twist. I love mixing pieces that are inspired my menswear such as pairing a pleated skirt with a pair of suede loafers or a chiffon blouse topped with a fedora. Studying in Richmond definitely gives me the inspiration to take risks and mix bolder pieces into my wardrobe because of the variety of styles seen across campus.
Just like many other Style Gurus, I have high hopes for breaking into the fashion industry as well. Being able to write about fashion and volunteering for New York Fashion Week has definitely fueled the flame to my hunger. That is why I am very excited to be trying something new this semester and being your Style Guru for the FASHIONISTA SPOTLIGHT every Wednesday.
Cheers to another semester!
