STYLE GURU BIO: Amanda Matricciano

Hi Fashionistas! My name is Amanda Matricciano and I’m a senior at the University of South Carolina majoring in Public Relations with minor in business. Since writing is such a huge part of my major, I’m excited to begin writing more through CollegeFashionista. This is my first year being a Style Guru so hopefully I get better as I progress.

I was born and raised in a town outside of Charleston, South Carolina called Summerville. There’s not too much to do in Summerville so I started dancing. I’ve danced for the past 14 years and I’m fortunate enough to still be dancing in college! I’m apart of the Carolina Girls Dance Team at USC and absolutely love it. Since dance has been such a major part of my life I think it reflects onto my style now. I’d label my style as comfy and casual.

I’m new to the fashion world but I’m falling in love with more and more each day. Over the summer I worked for an amazing bridal designer Rachel Gordon in Charleston, South Carolina. It was an amazing experience that opened my eyes to everything fashion. I’m a college student who is struggling to decide between buying those cute cut off shorts or a nice pencil skirt for a future interview. I’m hoping that CollegeFashionista will help me grow and develop my own personal style. Although I may not consider myself fashionable yet, I do consider myself fashion obsessed!
