STYLE GURU BIO: Alexandra Christie

Hello there my fabulous friends! My name is Alexandra, but I prefer Lexy. I’m currently a senior at the University of Kentucky where I am studying in a major that I absolutely adore: merchandising, apparel and textiles. Although this is my first year with CollegeFashionista, it is by no means my first year as a Fashionista. For as long as I can remember I’ve been obsessed with beauty and constantly on the lookout for the latest styles and opportunities in the fashion world. So when I heard about this internship, I knew it would be perfect for me.

For Fashionistas, fashion isn’t just a profession or a hobby, it’s a way of life. There’s a crazy thrill in hearing about the newest trends that gets your heart beating, your blood pumping and will make you jump out of bed at four in the morning just to put an outfit together–or at least that’s how it is for me. That having been said, it’s even more exciting to be able to mix together a bunch of trends to find the perfect style that just screams “you.” So have fun with your outfits! Throw things together that you never would have considered, even if it happens to be at four in the morning. Fashion grows and changes because of all of the Fashionistas out there who dare to “break the rules.” And who doesn’t like to break the rules every once and a while?

I’m always trying to push boundaries with my personal style. This outfit in particular is the perfect blend of my edgy and girly sides. It shows off my personality and style, and it even tips its hat at some of the styles that are currently trending: midi skirts and lace-up flats. I really love the juxtaposition of the cropped shirt and the oversized skirt, and I think a denim jacket is the perfect piece to make a dressier outfit more wearable for every day. I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about me, and I look forward to sharing my fashion insight and styling tips with you all throughout the next few months!
