Hey there! My name is Ashley Kari, but everyone calls me Shlee. I’m a senior at Elmhurst College this year pursuing a degree in mass communications with a double minor in business and dance. I can’t wait to kick off this semester with the CollegeFashionista team!

I’m patiently waiting for graduation in May 2017 so I can make my move to Chicago and hopefully continue onto grad school, but in the meantime I plan to take full advantage of my last year at Elmhurst. If you see me on campus, I’ll most likely have a coffee in my hand because it’s my only form of survival. Currently, I am captain of the dance team on campus and vice president of Internal Relations for Dance Marathon. So, it’s safe to say I’m a little obsessed with dance. Besides dance, fashion and beauty have always been passions of mine.

As a firm believer that not one person is stuck to a certain style, every Fashionista/o out there has the power to rock whatever they’re feeling! I like to stay up-to-date on the latest trends while still incorporating classic items. Us college students are typically ballin’ on a budget, but that does’t mean you can’t treat yourself once in a while. I do enjoy a good Henri Bendel bag or Tory Burch jewelry, but I am also ever so faithful to the sale section at H&M. I absolutely love an outfit you can wear during the day and just switch up a pair of shoes to be ready for a night out.

Can’t wait to have a #RAD semester with you all!
