Hi! My name is Lyndsay Moore, and I am a rising senior at Appalachian State University. I am majoring in Apparel Design and Merchandising with a minor in Marketing. I am the vice president and recruitment chair for my sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha. I am thrilled to be a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista because it allows me to share with other Fashionistas my view on this fast-paced world of fashion, apparel, design and accessories. Check out my accessories section!
When it comes to clothes, I have a major weakness for stripes. Over half of the garments in my closet have stripes. One of my favorite categories of apparel and fashion is accessories. I’m a firm believer that the accessories you choose can make or break your outfit. I can’t even begin to express to you all how much of an impact your accessories can have. Watches, bracelets, earrings and scarves are my forte. I am always wearing my watch, always, always have earrings in, and I usually interchange my third accessory between a necklace, bracelet or scarf.
One of my favorite quotes is from Harry Gordon Selfridge, former owner of Selfridge’s, and he says, “Do the right thing, at the right time, in the right place.” I believe in this quote because I realize how important timing is with everything you do. This quote also incorporates fashion and apparel principles, as well as my own values and morals. With fashion and apparel, timing and having everything “right” in the moment is so, so important. With me, timing is everything, but so is doing the RIGHT thing.
The quote by H. G. Selfridge makes me want to start pursuing my dream today. My dream is to begin with a small, women’s boutique with young women’s clothes and accessories made by yours truly. I have a passion for making my own clothes and accessories, as well as making items specially made for others.
I can’t wait to share with you how I view the world of fashion, apparel and accessories!
