So it has officially been three years—three years enduring all of the sleepless sewing nights, endless tears because a garment I made did not turn out the way I had hoped, as well as the constant questions I always asked myself of what will happen after graduation. Yup, that pretty much sums up my three years at Parsons in a nutshell.
Don’t get me wrong, though. Despite all of the hardships I faced, I have definitely learned a lot during my time here. In fact, I am certain that I want a job pertaining to fashion in the future. However, what many do not know is that fashion alone is such a huge field consisting of many different types of jobs. That being said, many people expect me to simply start my own brand or work under a fashion company as if that is the only route I can take. The beauty of interning is that it gives me an opportunity to explore other options, and hopefully find a passion that fits exactly to what I want to do.
As a Style Guru here on CollegeFashionista, I really hope to bring back the excitement and playfulness that I had initially felt with fashion. I find pure fascination in seeing how other students express themselves, and how it creates a sense of pride and confidence. Likewise, the way I dress definitely makes me feel comfortable in my own skin. As a girl who stresses comfort, I love wearing loose-fitted clothing. Both the top and trousers are purchased from Zara, one of my go-to stores for affordable yet fashionable clothing. While the top remains a solid white color, the trousers give an interesting look by adding stripes. This gives a moderate feel to the overall outfit: enough for others to compliment my look, but not enough for anyone to say that it is too much. To top the look off, I am wearing sandals and a watch purchased from ALDO, another one of my go-to stores. Altogether, my outfit creates a laid-back look of someone who is ready for summer break.
