STYLE GURU BIO: Deborah Shepherd

There’s something incredible about picking the perfect outfit that exactly expresses your current mood. It’s one of the many reasons why I love fashion. The ability to transform one’s exterior through different fabrics, colors and styles is a liberating and empowering experience.

But being a fashion enthusiast wasn’t innate for me. Dissimilarly to most Fashionistas, my body image issues drew me to fashion. I practically hated the way I looked, so change needed to happen. Little did I know that fashion would lead me on the everlasting journey to confidence and self-acceptance.

As my style has evolved, I’ve developed my signature style, and it must include my hatleather jacket and black denim. I love the way these look amid nature backgrounds. The whole aesthetic gives a mix of edgy and industrial with a warm, earthy vibe.

Currently I reside in Seattle, WA and attend Seattle Pacific University. I’m in my third year. I’m majoring in Communications with a Journalism track. I’m also the founder and creative director of “DebbyBooVlogs” blog and YouTube. All fashion, beauty, and natural hair trends that I love will be on these platforms.

Thrilled would be an understatement to describe how I feel about being a Style Guru with CollegeFashionista. I’m excited to capture street style, be apart of a community, and learn more about fashion journalism.
