STYLE GURO BIO: Alyese Shaffer

May 30th, 2016 at 2:10am

Hello fellow fashion lovers! My name is Alyese Shaffer and I’ve got a passion for all things fashion. I am an incoming junior and am currently studying retail merchandising and product development at Florida State University, and I am also pursuing a minor in Business. This is my first semester as a Style Guru and I couldn’t be more excited for this opportunity!

My first memory of being absolutely in love with fashion was when I was a little girl and my cousin got a chest of pink, sequined dress-up clothes for her birthday and I was completely jealous that I didn’t get one. I spent hours at her house playing dress up and we would fight over who got to wear which tops. After a lot of coaxing and whining, my dad finally caved in and bought me one too. I remember pretending to be a stylist and dressing my brother up as Brittney Spears. A decade later and I can say not much has changed; I am still in love with anything sparkly and pink!

When I’m not slumming around in Nike shorts and a T-shirt, my style is all over the place. I would like to say it is boho-meets-preppy. I usually go for more basic pieces and choose to dress them up with accessories, like a statement necklace (usually with a tassel) and a bright pink lip!

In this look, I wore a patterned sundress, which I love because they’re easy to just throw on. I added a chambray button-down to make it a little more casual and these adorable fringe booties. To accessorize, I wore my favorite tassel necklace and some stackable bracelets.
