STYLE GURU BIO: Gabriela Candelaria

May 26th, 2015 at 2:00am

Let me start off by saying how excited I am to be apart of the CollegeFashionista team for the first time this summer! My name is Gabriela and I am entering my senior year at Pace University as a Public Accounting major with a focus on Taxation. Once I graduate from Pace University, I plan on continuing my education in fashion. A couple things about myself: I love candy, I am constantly shopping online, I am a huge baseball fan, drawing is my talent, almost everything I own is purple (yes, it’s my favorite color) and monkeys are my favorite animal!

I love fashion but I also have a nerdy side where my love for math and accounting comes out. I became interested in fashion my junior year in high school. Once I began my senior year in high school I took art classes and started to work on my drawing. I knew fashion design was something I wanted to do. But, that quickly changed when I took my first accounting class and realized that was something I was interested in as well. So my decision was pretty easy, why not do both!

My current job is at a women’s clothing store called The Limited. I must say I LOVE my job; not only is the discount great, but I love helping out my clients choose pieces and put some of their outfits together. It is also a great way to get ideas on what prints and colors to incorporate in my wardrobe. As for my personal style, I would define it as edgy and occasionally girly. All-black outfits are my go-to, but recently I’ve decided to add some color into my closet.

Summer is one of my favorite seasons, so I am looking forward to showing you all the popular trends that I spot this summer. Going to school in New York City gives me the opportunity to witness all different types of fashion. The streets are literally the runways. Can’t wait for all you Fashionistas/os to see what I have in store. Make sure to check back every Tuesday for my articles.
