STYLE GURU BIO: Angela Keating

I am just a silly suburban girl who has a crazy obsession with pineapples. My name is Angela Keating and I will be an incoming freshman at the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine. You will get to come along for the ride as I adjust to college life and the tiny box that is supposedly my closet. I will be majoring in Art Education and Elementary Education. I hope to be an art teacher and I plan on traveling to art fairs during the summer. Even as a small child I always loved to create. I crafted, drew and painted, and my creative genes ultimately led to an ever growing assortment of clothes and shoes. I am excited to finally be putting my collection to good use and thrilled to become part of such a talented community.

My style icon of the moment is the fierce Kylie Jenner because that girl is not afraid to try something new. Her glamorous edgy looks are to die for but it is her killer confidence that makes her outfits’ absolute perfection. Fashion, to me, is an art and a way to express yourself. It tells the world who you are and who you want to be. My personal style is all across the board and changes with my mood. One day I might look like Cher from Clueless while other days I look like I just walked straight out of an Urban Outfitters ad. I am a total style chameleon, but that’s what makes getting dressed in the morning so such fun!

I may look like a clean cut girl but I must admit that I have a weakness for dark lipstick, oversized denim, chokers and leather in any one of its many forms. My favorite piece right now is my white leather jacket. It’s new twist on the classic staple and I feel infinity cooler in its pure white embrace. I complemented my jacket with a simple black tank and ripped skinnies and I finished off the look with some rattlesnake skin booties. The outfit is very edgy but the white leather and metal toed boots make to ensemble appear more classy and grown up.

I am beyond excited to embark on this new phase in my life with my fellow Fashionistas. Stay tuned and I will soon reveal the wisdom that comes from owning 78 pairs of shoes.
