Hey everyone! My name is Emily Williams, and I’m so excited to be returning as a Style Guru. This will be my third semester writing for CollegeFashionista which is pretty fitting considering I just began my third year at the University of Georgia. I’m a journalism major with minors in Italian and fashion merchandising, so as you can probably tell I love writing, traveling and of course fashion.
My obsession with fashion has always been present; think of six year old me in a white turtleneck and a faux leather vest paired with a black and white polka dot skirt. However, my interest in the industry really took hold after I first saw The Devil Wears Prada. In the movie the job that’s meant to look like a nightmare to most was essentially my dream job. It finally clicked to me that my passion for clothing could actually be translated into a career. Ever since then I’ve been taking any steps that I can toward achieving my goal of eventually working in the fashion magazine industry.
My personal style, much like my taste in music, is constantly changing and a little eclectic. I love classic staples like blazers, high-waisted denim and little black dresses, but you’ll also find a plethora of boho prints and styles in my closet. My two end of summer staples have been bold jumpsuits and lace-up sandals. However, I’m so excited that fall is almost here so I can pull out my booties and cozy knits.
I’m so excited for another year in my favorite place in the world, Athens, Georgia, and for another year with CollegeFashionista! Here’s to hoping the third time really is the charm!
