My name is Lauren Lyford and I am going into my junior year at the University of Missouri. I recently just changed my major to Apparel Marketing and Merchandising and things have fallen into place since then, just like scoring this awesome internship! This will be my first semester as a Style Guru with CollegeFashionista and I can’t wait to share all of my fashion finds with you!
I’m a lover of many things, the number one thing being the band The Maine. The music and the guys in the band mean the world to me. Following close behind is my love for fashion and the arts. I think music and fashion go hand in hand; going to shows and listening to different genres of music have really helped cultivate my personal style. Sitting in coffee shops people watching all of the kids that are cooler than me doesn’t hurt either.
My personal style can change day to day but never strays too far from a grungy western vibe, if that makes any sense. Kind of just picture a punk in the desert if you will. I draw inspiration from what my favorite musicians are wearing. A lot of them happen to be male, so I enjoy adding a feminine twist to them. Many of my style icons are from Arizona, hence the punk in the desert.
I can usually be found at a concert, record store or at some weird indie movie in my spare time. I can’t wait to spot all of you stylish Fashionista/os at my local hangouts! Here’s to a great semester!
