STYLE GURU BIO: Chiamaka Eleje

Hey, everybody! My name is Chia, but I’m known as China around Texas State’s beautiful campus. I am a senior majoring in Public Relations and this is my third term with CollegeFashionista. I am extremely excited to get it started and show some Bobcat love!

Besides my stellar style, I am known around town for my colored lipsticks and ever-changing hairstyles. I love how my style is a true representation of my character. Every day is a new day to show another side of me. In the words of the famous Coco Chanel, “Everyday is a fashion show and the world is the runway.” When I’m not obsessing over my #OOTD, I like to sing, write and design clothes. I’m planning on graduating in May of next year, so this may be my last semester with the amazing CollegeFashionista team. It’s so sad, I know, but I am hoping to take everything that I have learned while working with this team and apply it as I embark on the next chapter of my life.

Some of my must-haves for the fall and winter seasons include sheer tops/dresses, dark matte lipsticks and large tote bags. I’ve always been a sucker for a nice pair of boots and a fresh pair of sneakers, as well. If there were absolutely ONE thing that I wouldn’t dare to leave the house without, it would have to be jewelry. The right jewelry can really complete an outfit, and a perfectly poised ensemble is a sure way to demand the attention of the room.

I can’t wait to read everyone’s articles and see what Fashionistas/os are rocking around the nation—even the world! To my fellow Style Gurus, see you on the runway and to my fellow Bobcats, “Eat em’ up!”
