Hello Fashionistas/os! I am Anna Seaward and this will be my very first time writing for a fashion website. I am so excited to become a Style Guru this semester. I am a sophomore at Illinois State University and my major is Fashion Merchandising with a minor in Business. I also have my Cosmetology license since I have a big interest in hair and makeup. My dream is to become a buyer for an upscale clothing store such as Nordstrom or Von Maur. Shopping is my absolute favorite thing to do, so I will be lucky to make it my career!
Since I have been in college, I have tried to experiment with new styles and clothing choices. Back at home, no one really tried new things. I often look up new trends and I go to the mall a few times a month to update my wardrobe. I love to look into new designer pieces and find cheaper alternatives that I can afford. I have worked in retail, which is my first step towards my dreams.
My style has a very wide range. You will not see me in the same type of clothes all of the time. In class, I will usually be seen in a Victoria’s Secret PINK hoodie with Under Armour leggings and some UGG boots. Comfort is key when you are sitting in a boring lecture hall. I also love getting super dressy and girly as well. Steve Madden wedges are becoming my new best friend in college. As fall rolls in, I will be bringing out my riding boots and infinity scarves. You can never go wrong with a leather jacket or a North Face as it begins to cool down. Marc Jacobs has my favorite perfume line and Urban Decay helps me freshen up my face. I keep my skin glowing with St. Tropez Tanning Essentials. My favorite stores are Charlotte Russe, Ulta, Nordstrom and Marshalls. Olive green will forever be my favorite color.
I absolutely cannot wait to start this semester and find some great style on the Illinois State University campus!
