STYLE GURU BIO: Anna Friesen

My name is Anna Friesen (think Frozen). I am a senior in journalism and French at Virginia Tech. This is also my second semester as a Style Guru. I am so excited for this fall semester and all the new Style Gurus! Because I’m graduating this May, I’ve decided that the year ahead will be filled with new things and taking risks. I’m ready to take risks in my clothes and style. So be on the lookout for some fun posts this semester!

Fashion has always been important to me. I distinctly remember in elementary school spending so long to pick out my clothes and coordinating all the colors of my outfit. I specifically remember a little denim skirt with a pink trim at the bottom that was practically attached to my hips.

Now, I don’t necessarily wear all pink to class. But, I do still put effort and value into my outfit. Fashion is so important to a person’s personality. Your daily outfit is a canvas for self-expression.

My personal style is preppy meets edgy. I love simple pieces like solid colored dresses and tops. I like to take risks in my shoe and accessory choices. Picking a fun sandal can completely transform your outfit. A unique piece of jewelry goes a long way. Taking pieces from different stores and styles is what I think makes my style unique.

Aside from fashion, I love seeing new places whether it’s the mountains in Blacksburg or a beautiful city in the middle of Europe. I want to meet new people, try new food and walk new streets. And I have to photograph that, another one of my passions.

With camera and my passport (or car keys), I can’t wait to show you my style this semester!
