STYLE GURU BIO: Jessica Stanzione

I am a new Style Guru with CollegeFashionista, and I am very excited to be a part of the team! My name is Jessica and I am a current junior at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York studying Public Relations and Fashion Merchandising. I grew up in a small town in New Jersey only 20 minutes outside of Manhattan. Growing up, I fell in love with the fast-paced New York City lifestyle and fashion around me. This led to my passion for the fashion industry and hopes to someday find a career doing what I love.

Last summer, I worked my first retail job and interned with a small Fashion PR firm in the city. I gained a ton of experience that summer from learning how to provide excellent customer service to creating social media posts for clients. The best part was that I really enjoyed what I was learning and would like to continue learning about both fashion and PR.

Over the years, I have found that my style varies from “boho” to very “edgy.” I mainly like shopping in small boutiques where I can find unordinary apparel that not many people are likely to have. I am a huge fan of new and unique trends, and my favorite trend over this past summer was gladiator shoes. I absolutely love these knee-high sandals and wish I could buy them in every color! In this post, I am wearing a metallic romper from a boutique I found in the city, along with my favorite black and gold-buckled gladiators, a silver watch and a few custom rings.

I am thrilled to begin my journey with CollegeFashionista! Stay tuned for some pretty #RAD articles and awesome trends!
