STYLE GURU BIO: Mattie Tiggleman

How does one describe the style which defines them? I love to mix the new with the old, the expensive with the thrift/bargains. I want my outfits to be able to speak volumes, to show my creativity, as if every outfit I wear is a piece of art. It is all about the gut feeling for me with fashion.

Just like most things in life, I believe that with fashion and what you wear, I think that “you know when you know” that it is right. There is something amazing and indescribable about the way you feel in a killer outfit, as if nothing could really go wrong. I believe that it is then that I feel truly unstoppable. I find inspiration for fashion in every aspect of my life. I have become defined by my love for chokers, leopard, (faux) fur, Lime Crime velveteen lips and leather. I will be an entering freshman at Louisiana State University this August and will be following my dreams in fashion by majoring in textiles, apparel and Merchandising and possibly double majoring in business with a minor in Spanish. As I travel 1,000 miles across the country for college, there aren’t many things I know for sure about my future, except that I want to be a part of the fashion world and that is why I am so excited to be a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista! Cheers to a #RAD summer, Fashionistas!!
