STYLE GURU BIO: Isabella Shanle

Hey all, my name is Isabella Shanle. I am a first-year marketing student at the University of Florida. I have loved all the glitz and glamour of the fashion industry ever since I was a little girl. I am super excited to be a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista for the first time this spring semester, so with further ado let’s get right into it.

My style icon is the lovely and daring Elizabeth Taylor. From plunging necklines to fur wraps and even head pieces, this woman stood out and took fashion as her own self-expression, and that’s what it is all about, right? I love fashion and style, because like your persona, it is unique to each individual. One of my favorite fashion quotes was founded off cycle 23 of America’s Next Top Model by Law Roach: “Your outfit says hi before you do.”

As I mentioned earlier, I am a lover of rad fashion and stand out pieces, but while also on a college student budget, I live for the steals and deals. Often you can find me salvaging through stores at Oaks Mall for the best price. While I love fashion, I am also a lover of hair and makeup because of the years I’ve spent performing at dance recitals and competitions. Also, I used to get paid to do people’s hair for prom and other big events.

For this look, I bundled up because Gainesville got so chilly! For my outerwear, I wore a pink fuzzy sweater, then paired it with leggings and black booties. I completed my look with a small pink shoulder bag from Kate Spade New York.

I hope I gave a little fashion inspiration for you to incorporate this winter. Keep in touch by following all my social media.
