STYLE GURU BIO: Marissa Ferguson

Hi there! My name is Marissa. I am currently a senior studying apparel merchandising at Iowa State University and am also pursuing a minor in entrepreneurial studies. It is my dream to start up my own boutique (with the help of my ah-mazing parents) somewhere along the beautiful lakes of North Carolina. I’ve never actually been there, but if you have, let me know what areas to check out!

I am so excited that I have this opportunity to write for CollegeFashionista as I want to step out on a limb and try something new. I’ve never written a blog before but am looking forward to practicing and perfecting the art it encompasses. That’s one thing that I love about the fashion industry, there are so many different directions one can go with fashion. From magazines, to fashion shows, buying and window displays, the sky’s the limit! For me, blogging is the next area I’d like to dive into.

As for my style, I’d say it’s very much like my Gemini (twin) horoscope sign, and by that I mean I have two main styles. The first being my bohemian side. Fringe, billowing sleeves, high-waisted pants and off-the-shoulder tops are what I live for. The second style I like to call my “Parisian” side. Having my parents live in Paris, France, my style adapts to their culture when I live there. All black everything, formal dresses and high heels all make me channel my inner Audrey Hepburn.

In this particular look, I wore this dusty rose dress that I am absolutely obsessed with! I have been digging this pink color lately and the many details on this dress make it stand out even more so. With lace-up tops and dresses popping up everywhere, I loved how this dress softened that fad by making it more feminine with braided details, fitting in perfectly with my bohemian alter ego.

Thanks for letting me briefly introduce myself! I can’t wait to share this new adventure with you all! Make sure you follow me on social media so you can get updates on my latest posts!
