STYLE GURU BIO: Emily Padula

Hello Fashionistas/os!  I’m Emily Padula and I’m a journalism student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

From a young age, I have acquired an appreciation for personal style and trends. I used to watch reruns of Project Runway all day long and dream about possibly becoming a fashion designer. My style has come from my time living in New Jersey. I would take trips into New York City and eventually grew to love the simplistic and sophisticated elegance of New York fashion. Since then, my career aspirations have changed slightly, but my strong love of style remains.

My style consists of a lot of basic items that I can wear during the day and change up at night. I love adding fun accessories or shoes that make an outfit pop. For example, these wedge platform sandals add some flair to my basic black day dress. I love to pair simple gold jewelry with my outfits to create a casual glam. Don’t get me wrong, when I feel like wearing a unique outfit, I will fully take advantage of the opportunity.

My favorite fashion pieces are a classic black dress, retro sunglasses and cute wedge sandals. I also have a strong love for beauty and skincare, so be on the lookout for some tips on how to experiment with your makeup or skincare regime.

I look forward to researching new trends this semester. Thanks for coming along with me on this learning experience.
