Hello Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Blake Mudd and I am so excited to return once again as a Style Guru for this upcoming semester. As I begin my junior year of college as a Retailing and Consumer Science major, I realize how excited I am for all the new things coming my way. I am beginning a new job as a Visual Merchandiser for Macy’s, living in my brand new apartment and most importantly, will also participate in my fourth semester here at CollegeFashionista! All of this on top of school will keep me very busy, but I wouldn’t have my life any other way.

For those of you not familiar with me, I am that guy on campus who wears printed short sleeve button-downs, comfortable shorts and bold colored sneakers. I was also probably studying in the library or waiting in line for food while having my eyes glued to my phone.

One of my favorite things about living in Houston is the diversity. Whether it is the wide variety of culture or the different style each Houstonian represents, there is always so much to see and every person has a story to tell. I love fashion and style because I believe it is a form of self-expression, just like art or music. CollegeFashionista is great because I get to meet a wide variety of students on the extremely diverse UH campus and talk to them about their style; everyone has a different story to tell and I am so excited to meet new people and appreciate some really chic Cougars!
