Hi Fashionistas/os! My name Maggie O’Gara and this is my first time writing for CollegeFashionista. I am a senior at the University of Tulsa and I am majoring in Musical Theatre with a minor in dance. I cannot wait to start scouting out Fashionistas around my campus!

I have been a lover of fashion for as long as I can remember. Even as a young toddler I loved to go shopping with my aunt and get jealous because, “She has all these bags when we don’t have anything!” That’s a direct quote from me, folks. So, suffice to say I have been a devoted follower of fashion since my toddler tutu days (tutus for me because I was a dancer!)

I had always been drawn to dance, and acting and singing came a little while later. For me, there is nothing better than being on stage and impacting people with performing. While I have chosen performing as my career path, I am just as passionate about fashion. I started my blog, maggieoprep.com, as a way for me to share my love of style and fashion with people. So far I have loved every minute of it, and having this passion project for something I love so much is fantastic.

My blog has been a great way for me to share my style with people, and I hope that this internship will do the same. My style is definitely on the preppy side. I have always loved monograms, plaid and classic looks. I remember having more than one monogrammed shirt in my day and I would get my backpacks from L.L. Bean. So yeah, I was pretty much destined to be a “preppy.”  In the past year I have effectively defined my style and that is thanks to having a blog. I hope that this experience will help my style even more, and I hope that sharing my style will inspire others’ style!
