STYLE GURU BIO: Elizabeth Nguyen

Hello! Hola! Xin Chào! こんにちは!

Greetings, lovely Fashionistas and Fashionistos. My name is Elizabeth Nguyen and I’m a freshmen at Montclair State University and this is my first semester as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista. And for those who are returning Style Gurus, welcome back. And those who are just starting out, “we’re all in this together.”

As an incoming journalism major, aspiring to become a fashion journalist, I am quite the unusual fish in the sea when it comes to blogging and fashion. I enjoy reading fashion magazines, blogs, and of course, writing. As cliché as it is to say, I absolutely love shopping, especially online.

I have lived in New Jersey my entire life, except for the one semester I lived in California. When I was five years old, my sister and I would make our flower bedsheets into pretend ‘runway gowns’, put on an insane amount of makeup and pretend we’re walking on the runway. Whenever my family and I went to the local supermarkets, I would pick up either an Elle or Vogue magazine. I would always show my mom the different types of outfits and she would always tell me, “You could wear that some day.”

Over the years, I have always had a different look. From seventh to ninth grade was the typical varsity jacket, Nike shoes, tights and tee tank – the hipster look. And throughout high school, I juggled different types of fashion looks. Let’s just say, I experimented a lot with my fashion taste. Fast-forwarding to my first semester in California, I thought I wanted to pursue a career in animation, but I still wanted to do fashion. However, I’m not the best artist in the world. So, I put my love for fashion magazines, blogging, traveling and decided to pursue a career into fashion journalism. Therefore, I decided to come back home, continue my education and major in journalism.

For my first Style Guru bio, I’ve decided to show case one of my go-to outfits. My go-to pieces are usually a pair of boyfriend jeans and my glasses. As far as tops, it’s always depended on the weather. I prefer to buy colors that compliment my skin tone and clothes that make me feel like me. You wouldn’t want to buy anything that would make you feel less you. Everyday I’m always set on showing a different mood. So, in a sense, I let my clothes express how I’m feeling. Personally, fashion is a way to express individually. As the year progresses, I slowly go through different pieces and find my own sense of style.

I’m truly thankful to have an opportunity to be a part of CollegeFashionista and spread the love of fashion to others. Thank you everyone who has stuck to the end of my first bio. I hope you enjoy reading my posts and always end the day with happiness.

Now, let’s have a RAD semester!
