Hello Fashionistas! This is your new fall style guru, Alyssa Guia! I’m a Miami girl who traded the palm trees and ocean breeze for some Seminole football and nature trails. I am a third year Florida State University student studying retail merchandising and product development. I am a doughnut loving, Disney World enthusiast who enjoys all things from my home town. You guessed it Miami, Florida! I treat every day like a Friday, filled with excitement and trendy outfits. My greatest goal in life is to use my gifts and talents to share the love of God in a creative and compelling way. I am detailed-oriented, self-motivated and love to collaborate to get things done. I thrive in a creative environment and can take a project from inception to execution. I can envision the final product and know all the fibers, threads, trimmings and finishings that compose it and how they work together. No seriously, I took a whole class on fibers.

As for style, to say I found myself in fashion is an understatement. Graduating high school as a 10-year athlete I guess you can say I was a little lost when looking for majors in college. One thing remained the same about me and I decided to follow my real passion which is fashion. I have always been creative and the artsy type. I might use the right side of my brain a little more than the left as my younger brother might say. I want to use my abilities to go as far as I dream of in the fashion industry!

I adore the must have, fashion genius, angels singing statement pieces you think about before you go to sleep! If it is out of my “college student budget” you can bet I’m going to DIY it. Edgy and trendy style is life and that’s what I am. You can catch me watching fashion week on my laptop while waiting for a professor’s lecture (sometimes during but shhh!). I personally feel that fashion is not just about wearing the latest trends, it’s more about knowing how to incorporate them into your personal style, knowing what works for you and feeling confident. I get my inspiration from traveling, my hometown and definitely self-confidence. I cannot wait to give you some fashion tips and tricks, style ideas and above all get to know you Fashionistas!

I leave you with my favorite verse “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”- Philippians 4:13
