Hi fashion lovers! I’m Augusta, and I am just starting as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista. I couldn’t be more excited! I am a junior at St. Lawrence University majoring in communications and minoring in sociology. My dream is to work in Public Relations in the fashion or beauty industry. Living in New York and attending both public and private school, I have been exposed to a wide variety of style choices, and I think I have learned a lot from them.
Ever since I was little, my mom always told me to put my best foot forward. Of course, this can apply to all things in life, but in my case, I took it to mean always look your best no matter what! I would never be seen without my plastic pear necklace and mini kate spade purse when I was about four. My style has changed a little bit since then, but my absolute love for fashion has about stayed the same.
I have always idolized Coco Chanel, and to this day, she is one of my biggest role models. Chanel Chance was actually one of the first fragrances I ever wore during those awkward stages in middle school. As I have grown up and my interest in clothing, shoes, accessories, beauty and so on have grown, I find myself experimenting with different styles and trends.
Even though my style may change with the times, I still keep in mind, and hope you will too, these words of wisdom from Coco Chanel: “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”
