STYLE GURU BIO: Julia Blandford

Hello, my fellow Fashionistas! My name is Julia Blandford, and I am currently a freshman at the Savannah College of Art and Design (aka SCAD), studying both fashion design and business. I am so unbelievably excited to be an official Style Guru for CollegeFashionista, since fashion has always been such a passion of mine!

A bit about myself: I am an avid lover of fashion (naturally), as well as beauty (total makeup junkie here!), and any other form of creativity and art. My life has evolved entirely around the arts for as long as I can remember; I’ve been a dancer my whole life, and spent my childhood wildly fascinated by literature, poetry, and music. And thus, it was only natural that I then too became obsessed with the world of fashion.

My style is a collection of various things: femininity and urbanity, earthy and edgy, classic and modern. Honestly, my style can’t be defined by a single word or label, I simply wear what makes me feel authentically me. For this outfit, I paired this multi-colored, pleated skirt with a cerulean-colored turtleneck.I then layered on a  suede and faux-fur vest, along with a funky, vibrant necklace. Since there was already so much going on with my outfit, I decided to keep it fairly simple with some nude, lace-up flats.

I cannot wait to have a wonderful semester with other Fashionistas! If you’d like to see even more of me, then feel free to follow my social media and check out my blog, Art & Misfits.
