STYLE GURU BIO: Melany Smeriglio

Hey, Fashionistas and Fashionistos! I’m a new Style Guru for the Spring of 2016. My name is Melany and I am a freshman at the University of Bridgeport. I’m majoring in fashion merchandising. I’m also a graduate of Barbizon Modeling and Acting School. I enjoy shopping, dancing, musical theater, photography and sleeping.

I am OBSESSED with Disney (my favorite princess is Ariel)! I also love the beach, and spring is my favorite season. I love taking photos and I am interested in becoming a stylist or a buyer. My favorite color is purple. I shop for anything with floral print, plaid or leopard print. My favorite article of clothing to wear at this time of year is a nice comfy sweater. I love shopping for shoes and dresses. One day hope that I will have enough money to buy a nice pair of red bottom Louis Vuitton heels! I don’t have a favorite designer because there are way too many to pick!

I personally find it very difficult to put together outfits in the winter because I like to stand out, but I still need to be warm. So, I wore a pair of Aztec printed leggings  to make the outfit seem fun. Since the color purple is a winter color, I wore a purple vest with a jeweled headband and a white sweater. So I think I was successful in making my outfit warm ad comfy, while looking put together. What do you think?

I am so grateful and excited to have gotten this opportunity to expand my love for fashion and I hope you enjoy reading my articles! Stay warm this winter!
