Hi all! My name is Leigh King, and I am so happy to be joining the CollegeFashionista team. As a rising Senior (eek!) at LIM College in New York City, I call Manhattan my home. Before becoming a Style Guru I held a year long internship in the Web Department at Teen Vogue. During my time there I blogged up a storm, covered fashion week shows, raided the infamous beauty closet and most importantly learned that The Devil Wears Prada is not the normal fashion mentallity, even at a top magazine.
Ever since a close friend introduced me to the blogoshpere I have been hooked! I love the feelings of instant gratification and the connections you can build with readers through blogs. I started my own blog, Style Me Etsy three years ago and it has led me to great opportunites. I was even able to land a Styling and Visual Merchandising internship at Tory Burch with the help of my blog. I currently intern at Tory Burch and have excitedly set up the show room for Market Week, assisted on photo shoots, (even a very exciting one with The Man Repeller!) sifted through racks of gorgeous clothing and helped merchandise a new store. Whenever I have spare moment I always make sure to check out some of my favorite fashion blogs like The Glitter Guide, Man Repeller and Cupcakes and Cashmere. You can see my work on, of couse, College Fashionista, TeenVogue.com and my personal blog, Style Me Etsy.
When my computer is not glued to lap, I love frolicking around the city with my friends and finding new exciting places to hang out. Of course, shopping is high on my priority list but, I always make time for walks along the East River with my tiny malti-poo Bear. So dear readers, here's me in a nutshell; I believe in glitter, retail therapy is real, there's no such thing as a bad hair day, chai tea latte's are a gift from the gods, blogging is my obsession, success is my goal and creating is my passion. I hope you'll follow me this semester as I set out on my adventure as a street style photographer and Style Guru extrordinaire.
