STYLE GURU BIO: Grace Billiski

Hi everyone! My name is Grace Billiski, I am from upstate New York and I have finally just finished my first year at Niagara University. I am majoring in marketing and hope to work in the fashion industry someday, either in advertising or merchandising. This is my first time as a Style Guru and I am so excited to share what I love about fashion with anyone who is willing to listen.

I love to spend time with my friends and family, and most of all my dog. While I’m back home I enjoy being outside and driving around town. However, this summer will be dedicated to working. All this time off is giving me the opportunity to replenish my drained bank account, caused from living 10 minutes away from the local mall. To get a sense about how my fashion obsession came to be, I’ve always been drawn to stores like Free People, Brandy Melville and Lord and Taylor. I look up to fashion icons like Olivia Pope (her Prada bags are to die for), Karlie Kloss and Alexis Ren.

My personal style consists of skinny jeans, crop tops and cool T-shirts. Most of my outfits include my favorite color, black. Although all-black is one of my favorite go-to outfits, I do love to incorporate some forms of color into my clothing. Whether it is colorful socks or a necklace, a little something helps to keep it from becoming too boring. One of my favorite things is when someone comes up to me and says “I saw this shirt and it reminded me of you.” It’s a wonderful feeling when people can see a regular piece of clothing and immediately think of me, it shows that I have made an impression.

I can’t wait to write more for CollegeFashionista and watch out for more posts from me this summer!
