STYLE GURU BIO: Mary Kate Coleman

May 26th, 2015 at 2:00am

Ciao, Fashionistas! My name is Mary Kate Coleman and I am so excited to be returning as one of your Style Gurus for the summer of 2015. I just recently returned home from Roma, Italy where I was studying Fashion Merchandising for four incredible months. I traveled to various places like Paris, London and Greece and it was neat to see how people dressed in different parts of the world. In Rome I took a Fashion Styling class and a Trend Forecasting class in which I learned so much! One of my finals was actually a live photoshoot which was amazing to help out with. Although it was so bittersweet leaving, I am glad to be home and back into the swing of things (and talking in English). This fall I will be an upcoming senior at Philadelphia University—I can’t believe it! I plan to live it up this last year of college and make it my best semester yet.

This summer, I am working at the Anthropologie home office in Philadelphia. I interned here last fall, and I had such a great experience that I am back again! It is a very creative working environment and it inspires me to be a little bit more daring in my own personal sense of style. I usually go for a rocker/bohemian type look myself, but my style is often changing. My favorite summer outfit to go out in this moment is a floral dress and black heels to make it not look so girly. I love unique rings and wear multiple at one time, the more the merrier in my opinion. like these. When I am not working I love to go to concerts, shop and spend time with my three nephews.

I am so excited to see what this summer brings and even more excited to continue to document and photograph Fashionistas that I see on my adventures.
