STYLE GURU BIO: Aminah McKenzie

I am a 19-year-old fashion blogger and vlogger. Fashion is a way for me to express myself without having to speak and it is so much fun to be able to express yourself with just the clothing that you wear. I love wearing my favorite pieces whenever i get the chance.

I like to be the one to stand out with the clothes that I wear. I am very weird and unique but people don’t really know that by my clothes. Other than loving fashion, I love music and art as well. I have been into photography for 5 years now but recently I have found out that I love it as much as I love fashion. Family and friends are also very important to me. When I was younger, I was pretty quiet in school. When I was with my family they got to see the loud and outgoing personality that I have.

Growing up and being creative really helped me figure out my style today. I love wearing trendy pieces but I always add something that shows my personality. My favorite accessory to add to an outfit is a gold watch. I always feel like it brings an outfit together and I also think shoes play a huge role in my outfits. My favorite pair of sneakers are my ALDO sneakers. I love them because the tip of the shoe is gold (I think gold is my number one favorite color and I have a lot of favorites). The one thing that finishes an outfit is the makeup. I always viewed makeup as an accessory to any outfit. Clothes accentuate the body, while makeup accentuates the face.

In this article I am wearing a strapless top that is from an online shop called My Secret Treasures. The jeans are from a thrift store called Plato’s Closet. It’s an awesome thrift store because they have clothes from H&M, Forever 21, Cotton On, PacSun, Topshop and more! I decided to wear a simple watch, mainly because I love watches and they are my must have accessory. I also paired this outfit with some black booties from Plato’s Closet and I used my favorite purse from Ross. I made sure I added my cute pink fuzzy pom pom keychain as well.

I hope you all will have a rad semester and enjoy my articles for fall 2016!
