There are so many different types of love—self-love, love for your family, for your significant other, for your friends, and even for your pets. But there’s one type of love unlike any other—Style Guru love.
One of our favorite things about CollegeFashionista is our community of Style Gurus, who connect, inspire, and befriend one another, even when they go to school thousands of miles apart and often have never really met in IRL. It’s a unique and magical bond that makes us feel serious feelings.
Remember in elementary school when you (aka your mom) would pick out those rad Valentine’s Day cards and you would write notes declaring your friend love for your classmates? We decided to take that concept into the digital age. We asked some of our Style Gurus to share which of their fellow Style Gurus they’re friend crushing on. Check out their digital love notes and be inspired to share your own!
“A Style Guru I personally admire is Sam Yohannes. Her writing is so eloquent and a breath of fresh air. Every time I read one of her articles, I’m always so amazed at her ability to write in such an impeccable and genuine way. I always find myself wishing I could write as good as her. I also can’t forget to mention that her photography and fashion sense is so sophisticated and effortless. It’s so good! She is definitely a rockstar Style Guru!”—Brisa Gomez
