STYLE GURU BIO: Kathleen Crossey

Hello Fashionista friends! I am so happy you came across my page to read my posts.  My name is Kathleen Crossey and I am an upcoming freshman at The Pennsylvania State University. Being a Penn State fan my whole life, I have been yelling, “We Are” since the moment I can remember. Through this amazing opportunity, I can incorporate my love for fashion with the styles and looks I discover around my beautiful campus at Penn State.

I was born and raised in a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA, otherwise known as “The City of Champions.”  I grew up spending my childhood days with my older sister and twin brother. I knew I had a niche in fashion since I was a young girl playing dress up with my sister and putting on runway shows for my mom and dad. Along with being an inspiring fashion trender, I have many other interests that helped me to become the person I am today. For instance, I have been a basketball player since I was a little kid.  Also, I am fitness freak, always seeking adventure, Netflix binge-watcher and a Moe’s foodie.

Many people do not care much about fashion and the evolving trends that go along with it. I feel the best way to express yourself is through your own sense of style because it tells the world who you are without saying a word.

Personally, I do not have a set style. With fashion, I can express myself in a fun and edgy way regardless of whether or not I dress bohemian, preppy, elegant, trendy or just plain casual that day. Accessories are always my go-to choice to make a simple look, very trendy. A statement necklace or colorful booties can transform a daytime look into a glamourous night-in-the-city look.

For my first post, I decided to dress myself in a pair of ripped black jeans, a flowy off-the-shoulder top and a pair of my favorite sneakers from adidas.  As a health nut, I rock my Fitbit watch almost every day. Throw on a pair of dangly earrings and I am set for the day!

As the great fashion designer, Coco Chanel, once said, “I don’t do fashion. I am fashion.”  Do not be afraid to show the world who you are through your style and express yourself any way you wish.
