Hello, Fashionistas/os! My name is Kiara Catanzaro, and I am a senior Journalism and Mass Communication major and minoring in Spanish at St. Bonaventure University. I’m also a first-year graduate student pursuing my Master’s in Integrated Marketing Communications. I’m excited to return for my third and final semester as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista.
I’ve always had an appreciation for beauty and fashion. Thanks to CollegeFashionista, my love for beauty and fashion have been enhanced even more. I’ve learned how to step out of my comfort zone and search for trends and how people include their personal style to make an outfit unique.
If you look in my closet, you would find everything from comfy sweaters, scarves in every pattern and color imaginable, and timeless pieces such as blazers, LBDs and button-down shirts. As a fan of comfy clothes, unique patterns, and good deals, I’m a lover of both fashion and life. I would describe my style as, “a mix of eclectic trends with a focus on classic, feminine style.” To express my style and mantra for life in simple terms, it would be blissful, hence the name of my beauty and fashion blog, Blissfully Brunette.
One of my favorite quotes about bliss is from Joseph Campbell. “If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else.” Following your bliss can be career-related, style-related or related to other facets of life. But, it all comes down to one basic idea: it’s important to do what makes you happy. I hope that my articles will reflect how fashion is my personal bliss.
I am excited to find the best winter and spring looks I see on campus. I’ll be looking for the newest trends and how Fashionistas/os at St. Bonaventure use personal touches to make the trend unique to their own style.
