Hey guys! My name is Jillian Fuller and I’m a sophomore at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee! I’m so excited to begin my first semester with CollegeFashionista! I’m from Chicago, IL and literally everybody there is an artist in some sense – it’s amazing. Ever since I was little, I’ve been in love with creating things. I’ve honestly been into fashion since I was a little girl, I just didn’t know it. My mom always had me and my twin brother in the cutest clothes. We were always shopping together and we’ve visited New York, Paris, London and Italy together – amazing places for fashion and art!
I draw inspiration from many different aspects of my life—from celebrity blogs and social media that I follow (my favorites are Vanessa Hudgens, Natalie Wright, and Nicole Richie) to my environment. Chicago has played a huge role in shaping how I express myself. I also draw a lot from the fact that I’ve been dancing since I could pretty much walk. Dance is my first true love.
As for my style, it varies depending on my mood. I try to keep things very simple and not be too over the top. I love rings. I don’t feel like myself without at least three of them on. I also never leave without my Lokai bracelet that I got as a gift from someone special and my tiger eye bracelet that I’ve had since I was about five years old. Another staple in my wardrobe is generally black. I’m absolutely in love with this crop top I got from H&M, the sleeves and neck are mesh – a super cool twist on a basic item! I’ve also started wearing jeans more frequently after a 4 year hiatus. I’m obsessed with girlfriend/boyfriend jeans especially the ones I’m wearing in the photograph. They are girlfriend jeans from Gap and I think if I could, I would wear them all day every day.
My dream is to be a stylist, but I’m also interested in Women and Gender Studies and medicine…so we’ll see what happens. I’m so excited to share Vanderbilt fashion with you guys this semester, and I promise I’m going to get way better with my photography (thanks for the help, Mom)!
