STYLE GURU BIO: Gino Mortellaro

September 9th, 2015 at 4:41pm

Hello to all of the fashion lovers out there! I’m Gino, and I am currently studying to be a nurse but that doesn’t mean that I can’t be a stylish one. I am so excited to be a Style Guru this fall for CollegeFashionista and to show you all what I have to offer!

I was born and raised in a city by the name of Tampa, Florida! Growing up wasn’t always so easy for me because I was different and knew that I didn’t belong here. Even though I’ve never been to California, I’ve always dreamed of living there. I truly love how different things are over on the west coast. My style is mainly based off of the typical “California teenager.” My way of expressing myself is simply through fashion!

One of my favorite quotes is: “If you’re lucky enough to be different from everyone else, don’t change” (Taylor Swift). How you dress is a way of showing who you really are! I never leave the house without looking well kept up and presentable, not matter where I am going! When it comes to fashion I always say: “cute before comfortable” and that may not be the best thing always but, that’s just how I see it!

Getting to know Gino: First things first is that I am always out doing something, whether it be hanging out with friends and family or even just shopping; you’ll barely ever find me at home. I always have a cup of Starbucks in my hand at all times! I’m a gold member so you could ay I’m there a lot! My favorite TV shows include Teen Wolf, Scandal, and Rupaul’s Drag Race.

The most common thing you’ll see on me is skinny jeans, an oversized t-shirt or flannel, and a pair of chelsea boots. I love love LOVE to accessorize, so I usually am wearing a watch, some type of necklace a few bracelets and a different pair of sunglasses all the time!

I hope you all enjoyed my first post and i can’t wait to truly show you what i have to offer this semester!
