STYLE GURU BIO: Macy Harris

“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” I figured it was only appropriate to start off my bio with a quote by the first person who inspired me to go into the fashion industry, Rachel Zoe.

My name is Macy Harris and I am a retail merchandising and fashion product development major at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. I am a returning Style Guru and love sharing wearable art with the world.

My fashion story started when I was just a little one picking out my own clothes at The Gymboree. But the moment I truly knew this crazy world was for me was when I attended Teen Vogue‘s Fashion University in 2010. I was inspired the second I stepped out of the cab and on to the New York City streets. As I sat through all of the seminars that weekend I was overwhelmed by the amazing words of Zac Posen, Amy Astley, Charlotte Ronson and even the queen herself Anna Wintour. As I flew back to Ohio that Sunday evening I knew I had to do anything I could to get my foot in that door. This is were my fashion journey took an exciting turn. I had met a panel of fashion bloggers while at TVFU and realized that they first entered the industry from the comfort of their own home. I then channeled my love for filming, video editing and fashion and my YouTube channel, Fashionoutsider09 was born! I absolutey adore YouTube and the platform it has given to everyday people who just want to be seen/heard. My channel focuses on daily vlogging, look books and  lifestyle videos.

My personal style consists of a lot of neutral colors and basics that I can mix with more on trend accessories. I am so excited to be able to cover summer trends, like platforms and crop tops this season and share with you guys the Fashionistas and Fashionistos hidden on the bricks of Ohio University.

Whether it’s strutting your stuff to class, interviewing for that amazing internship or simply hitting the bars on a Friday night I’ve got you covered! Take a break from that summer job or lounging in the sun to check out my new #Rad articles every Monday!
