Hello Fashionistos! My name is Stephania Lara-Cuellar and I am delighted to return as a Style Guru for Texas State University this fall semester. I am a senior majoring in Public Relations with a double minor in Fashion Merchandising and History. This is my last year of college and I am so excited to document it for CollegeFashionista.
In my year as a Style Guru I have sharpened my eye to notice the beauty of the style that surrounds me. I have learned that good style transcends the test of time and extends far beyond clothing. It is an attitude, it is an ideology or it is as simple as a your grandfather’s old sweater. There are no rules for style, and usually those that break them are the ones that stand out the most.
This past summer I had the amazing opportunity to live in New York City. And though it was but a short two months, the impact was prodigious. The ability to be surrounded by so much art can have ever lasting effects. The entire summer was spent marveling at every glorious piece that shapes the Big Apple. This of course, restructured my own personal style.
My personal style will always be an evolving process. I love to learn about new things and incorporate them into my attire. I am far more inspired by the enduring presence of architecture than fleeting trends. I also take to Mexican and French film, music and fashion because those styles still rule large today.
I am an eternally curious human being who finds the world fascinating. CollegeFashionsita has given me a platform to observe the behaviors in trends. This semester I am writing the ACCESSORIES REPORT column, which is a dream come true since accessories are what makes us unique. I am so excited to share it with you readers and hope that you learn as much as I do.
