STYLE GURU BIO: Courtney Brooks

January 4th, 2016 at 2:00am

Hey, Fashionistas! I am currently a junior at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. My major is Marketing and minor is Finance. I am so excited to be a Style Guru for this spring semester. I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where there’s all different types of style. Walking around downtown, you could see someone in either a Steeler’s jersey or a dress! Pittsburgh is not known as a fashion capital, but I believe it is underestimated. There are so many locally owned boutiques, which makes Pittsburgh’s style unique! When I was little, I would spend a lot of time with my older cousins, who would dress me up in their clothes and do my makeup. I still look to them for style advice today! I, also, spend countless hours watching YouTube videos of different style and beauty gurus. Jaclyn Hill is my beauty and fashion idol! I love watching her videos and getting inspiration for my own style. If you haven’t seen her YouTube videos, what are you waiting for? In this look, I am wearing a faux fur lined vest from Charlotte Russe, paired with leather leggings from H&M. My go-to sunburst necklace can be found on Forever21.com This spring semester, I am excited to share with you the style IUP students have to offer. Not only am I eager to share my own articles, but to also see what other Style Gurus are interested in!
