STYLE GURU BIO: Marissa Dodd

Hey there Fashionista/os! My name is Marissa Dodd and I am so excited to be starting my fourth semester with CollegeFashionista! Through working with CollegeFashionista I have been able to really reach out of my comfort zone, especially through my style and social media. Seeing what my fellow Style Gurus are doing and wearing is inspiring and such a motivator. I am in my junior year at Liberty University and studying business marketing and clothing and textiles. After a little bit of soul searching my freshman year, I came to the conclusion that fashion is the right path for me.

My obsessions include Instagram, coffee, succulents and ripped jeans. I love adventuring whether it’s just to a local coffee shop or to the top of a mountain. In my spare time, I enjoy scrolling through Pinterest and trying new DIYs or finding new fashion tips. Fall is my all-time favorite season. Between the weather, the changing colors of leaves, pumpkin everything and, of course, the fashion, fall is just all around the best season.

I have always had a love for fashion simply because it is the easiest way to express myself. My style tends to change on an everyday basis between bohemian chic and grunge but that’s the beauty of fashion; you can base your outfit off of your mood and if your anything like me, your mood is always changing. My color palette tends to be pretty minimal, incorporating lots of neutrals. Although floral and stripes are my weakness when I want to switch things up.

So with that said, I hope you are ready for a #RAD semester full of style and that I am able to inspire you throughout my posts. I hope that you will follow along with my articles. Here’s to a great fall semester!
