STYLE GURU BIO: Clarissa Marchia

Hey CollegeFashionista readers! My name is Clarissa Marchia and I’m so excited to share my style and fashion tips with you this semester. I am a junior at the University of San Francisco and I’ve been part of the CollegeFashionista family since my freshman year. What makes this semester so special is that I’ll be reporting on all things fashion from abroad in Bologna, Italy! This is my first time traveling outside of the United States and I’m prepared to delve into the Italian culture and find style inspiration in the streets of Europe. I heard the food is pretty good too.

Being a Style Guru is one of the main highlights of my college years. I always enjoy finding Fashionistas and Fashionistos, writing about different styles on campus in San Francisco and researching different runway trends to influence my personal outfits. I enjoy writing, reading and photography and hope to one day become a fashion journalist and stylist. CollegeFashionista has given me the greatest opportunity to improve my writing and photography skills to prepare me for a career in fashion journalism.

Before you start reading my posts every week, there are a few things you must know about me. My favorite color is purple, but wearing something black has become an everyday habit. I have an obsession with shoes and coats, but since I’m always on the go it’s impossible to maintain a “Carrie Bradshaw inspired” closet. It’s my dream to travel the world and write about different style trends I see in various countries. New York City is my favorite city I’ve visited, but San Francisco comes in close second.

I’m looking forward to a fashionable semester and I hope you are too!
