If I am being perfectly honest, I have been unsure of how to even begin this article for some time now. If I am not mistaken, I believe I noted in my last Guru Bio that it would be my one, as I presumed that through my decision to attend graduate school I would no longer have the time to participate. With that said, there are few things that I find more enjoyable than taking a break from school, and focusing on something that holds a little special place in my heart; fashion. To reintroduce myself, my name is Sabrina but my people call me Bri. I recently graduated from my undergrad at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, with a degree in psychology, and a minor in Dance and Choreography. Since then, I have relocated across the country to Boulder, Colorado where I now attend Naropa University, a small Buddhist centered school nestled in the mountains. I am enrolled in a Somatic Counseling Program, specifically Dance and Movement Therapy with a concentration in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. Should all things go well, I will complete this program in three years and hopefully find myself to be super employable…or at the very least, educated and in debt.
Regardless, I am thrilled to be studying a subject matter I love, and excited for this cross country adventure I’ve embarked on. Aside from dance and helping related fields, my passions include an avid love of food (…mostly cheese), an obsession with Stevie Nicks and a never ending desire to live on the moon. Strange as it may sound, my fashions are very much inspired by a combination of these things. Okay, cheese may be a stretch, but my love of Stevie and the moon could potentially explain my love of oversized cardigans, long, messy hair and an insistence upon a monochrome-bohemian aesthetic. I do enjoy dashes of color and even sometimes wear jeans (please refer to above pictures—no really, look again because it’s the last time it’ll happen in 2016). For the most part, I tend to stick in a comfortable winter aesthetic, favoring deep, rich hues to bright and sunny shades any day of the week. With that said, I tend to enjoy a challenge and find that statement pieces in bright colors highlight my love of black shades perfectly.
I am thrilled to be blessed with the opportunity to continue writing for CollegeFashionista and I can’t wait to see how this semester unfolds!
