STYLE GURU BIO: Layne Miller

Hello, there! I am so happy to be back for another semester at CollegeFashionista!

I was sad to see the fall semester end, as I loved my classes, professors, and peers so very much. However, I am kind of excited to have a moment to breathe. Last month I officially declared my major in photography at Tyler School of Art, and it feels like I’m living inside an ethereal cloud. I can’t wait to see where my studies take me and all the good things to come in the new year.

I help pay for school by working in Center City, so I don’t really leave Philadelphia too often. But I got a few days off for Christmas so I got to go back to my hometown to see my family. The only issue was that I gave myself about thirty seconds to pack, so I had to rely on my sister’s closet to get me through the holidays. It’s an interesting challenge to try and recreate your personal style through the wardrobe of someone completely different than you. Thankfully, I still brought my favorite shoes, and my sister has pretty good style. Of course, if all else fails, you can just let your makeup carry the look. I’m a lover of all things sparkly and shiny, so my favorites are glittery eyes, and metallic lipstick. If your outfit’s kind of bumming you out, at least your face will be a ray of shining light.

2016 was a wonderful year for me, and I’m so ready to take on whatever 2017 has in store. Being a Style Guru has completely changed the way that I approach fashion and styling, and I am so excited to see how I grow from this semester from my internship.
