I don’t know about you but I am a huge fan of bloggers, and when I discover a new one, there is just no turning back. I practically research their whole life stories and know every little detail about them two hours later. That’s kind of what happened here. I looked into CollegeFashionista and thought what they did was so trendy and cool, so naturally, I decided to apply to be a Style Guru (I like to take risks). I didn’t think I would actually get the opportunity to write for the website, so my reaction when I got the email that I was chosen was a pretty surprised one. I was more than excited, and I still am today to be writing my first blog post.
Before we start, I’d like to introduce myself! My name is Kimberly, but Kim for short is perfect. I am a sophomore at Rutgers University, and I am currently majoring in Marketing, with a concentration in Business of Fashion. I could lie and tell you that I know what I want to do in the industry and that my life is all planned out but I won’t. I am a firm believer in just taking things day by day and living life one day at a time, so for now, I’ll just keep having fun with fashion, taking lots of pictures and enjoying my final teenage days as a 19 year old.
Now, let’s talk about my style. For starters, I tend to wear three colors: white, black and blue. I’ve tried countless times to branch out, but it never actually happens. To add onto that, I’ve had my fair share of “style changes” throughout my life. I’ve had a “Sperry Top-Sider wearing, J.Crew hoarding preppy” phase, an “only dresses, skirts, pinks and florals allowed girly” phase, and even a “Free People, fringe-loving, crochet-abusing bohemian” phase.
I’ve been through it all. But as I grow up, my style sort of grows up too. I’ve evolved into admiring details, and I’ve grown an obsession with the little things, like beautiful embroideries, hints of lace and even things like an intricate hem. I don’t take my style too seriously; I use it as a form of expressing my creativity, and I use what inspires me to do just that.
I can’t wait for this upcoming semester, and I know there’s only good on the way. With that being said, I am so excited to be a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista this Fall, and I can’t wait to see how all of YOU inspire me!
