My name is Abbey Eglow and I am a rising senior at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York. I am studying Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. This past summer, I interned for a fashion public relations firm in New York City. I cannot wait to be a Style Guru because I want to show readers the great styles I encounter at school!
I am a big social media and pop culture lover. I wear trendy, modern outfits with a classic twist. I love to find ways to wear outfits during the day the can be dressed up with a few statement pieces for a night out.
I found my passion for fashion after attending the annual Silver Needle Fashion Show hosted by Marist every spring. In the show, fashion designers get to showcase the collections they have been working on all year long. I knew then on that this was the industry I wanted to be in. With Marist having such a great fashion program, I get to embrace any outfit I can think of on a daily basis. I love to come up with new outfit ideas to wear to classes or out with my friends. My fashion icons would be Lo Bosworth, Lauren Conrad, Blake Lively, Shay Mitchell and Chrissy Teigen. They have a modern yet classic look that catches my eye.
In addition to fashion icons, I get my fashion inspiration from various fashion bloggers on Instagram. My go to favorites are Damsel In Dior, Something Navy, Becca Tobin and Fashion Jackson. They are also great sources to follow when planning trips, as they’re all located in the U.S. and show cute spots in various cities!
