STYLE GURU BIO: BreeAnna Poshek

Hello all, my name is BreeAnna Poshek, but as you’ll see on my profile, I go by Bee. Although I currently live in Syracuse, New York, I’m a Midwest girl at heart, and I call Superior, Wisconsin home. Syracuse University is a personal adventure of self-revelation. I’m pursuing a magazine major and educational studies minor.

Admittedly, I’m a journalist first and a Fashionista second. Don’t get me wrong, I love putting together a killer outfit, but I think my expertise lies in spotting the Fashionista/os on the ‘Cuse campus.

One of my dreams is to pursue a position at a fashion magazine like Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar. However, if I’m completely honest, some other part of me wants to write very serious news stories about poverty in other countries, so, who knows?

Fashion has always been an interest of mine, but the opportunities in Wisconsin are very limited. Binging America’s Next Top Model and Project Runway episodes is what did for most of my childhood.

Besides being limited to the Internet and Hulu to pursue my fashion interests, I was also limited in the money department. However, I think this gives me a unique perspective because I can get you more bang for your buck! One of my favorite things to do is spend Saturday mornings with my mom and grandma shopping at Goodwill for dollar days.

That’s where I got the lace skirt in the outfit above (which I definitely should not be able to wear in mid-December in Syracuse, but it’s still 50 degrees here). I paired the skirt with a black cardigan and a pair of my go-to heels that both come from good ol’ Target. Lastly, I finished off the look with a metallic feather ring, gold nails and a pop of color on the lips.

This brings me to my wardrobe essentials. First and foremost, coming from Wisconsin, flannels are a must! Cold? Flannel. Outfit a little boring? Flannel. Want to look homeless but still chic? Flannel (I’ll admit I borrowed this from a tweet). Other necessities include cute leggings, cozy sweaters, a pop of lipstick color, killer heels and a scarf of every color for every occasion.

Overall, I’m very excited for this semester as a Style Guru! I see it as an opportunity to show the variety of fashion styles represented on the ‘Cuse campus besides just the frequently appearing bright orange clothes. Thanks to all who choose to take the time to read about my insights on ‘Cuse fashion.
