Hey y’all, I’m Hayley and I’m super excited to be a Style Guru at CollegeFashionista this fall. I am currently a sophomore Business and Communications student at Villanova University, just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I am originally from New York and my dream is to one day return to the city and use my degrees and experience to work in the fashion industry. This is my first semester as a Style Guru and I am pumped.
I have been in love with fashion my whole life. My mom is a personal stylist, so ever since I was little I have been exposed to the fashion industry. Every aspect of the industry from designing to styling to marketing, intrigues me.Some of my favorite designers include Stacey Bendet, Tory Burch and Gabrielle Chanel.
My style is different from the typical Villanova student. Most Villanovans are the essence of “preppy.” I must admit, a have adopted a few “preppy” items since my start at Villanova but my style is more urban. I love versatile pieces that I can dress up with a fun necklace and some pumps or dress down with flats and a sweater. I am always on the lookout for new trends and consider myself a hardcore shopaholic.
When I am not shopping or reading the latest edition of Vogue, you can catch me working as a florist or even watching some Criminal Minds episodes. I love country music and just about anything Taylor Swift. i am ecstatic about this amazing opportunity and cannot wait to write my first article!
