STYLE GURU BIO: Maggie Arfman

January 6th, 2016 at 2:00am

Hi Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Maggie Arfman and I am so excited to be writing my fourth STYLE GURU BIO for! I have enjoyed contributing to CollegeFashionista for the past three semesters and I cannot wait to take on another one at Georgia Southern University!

I am currently a sophomore majoring in Fashion Merchandising at GSU. Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to pursue a career in fashion. I am constantly trying to gain experience and learn everything I possibly can to prepare for a career in the industry. I have been fortunate enough to have been given opportunities to work on fashion shows, photo shoots and more in my local community and at my university. I absolutely adore my professors and the stylish students I get to write and photograph from my campus for CollegeFashionista! I have always had a passion for writing, but being a Style Guru has definitely spark my interest in photography. I am so thankful for everything this internship has taught me and I cannot wait to see where it leads me to next!

As I grow as a person and as a fashion student, my style grows and evolves with me. I love to contrast different styles together. I take inspiration from literally everything I see—from a photo in a magazine to the color palette of bouquet of flowers. This particular outfit seemed to take inspiration from my subconscious love for Disney Channel. It definitely has some Hannah Montana vibes because of my blue fur vest, sparkly detail on my jeans and star pattern on my sweater. But, I am perfectly okay to be mistaken for a teen pop star. I love the contrast of the colored vest with the black and grey outfit and the distressed detail on my jeans. This outfit was so fun to wear—I will probably wear it to a New Year’s Party, or a Hannah Montana New Year’s performance, either one.

I am so excited to be a Style Guru this semester! Please check out my personal blog Outfit of the Day by Maggie to hear more from me and don’t forget to check back here for monthly posts!
