STYLE GURU BIO: Morgan Basso

May 26th, 2015 at 2:00am

What’s up, Fashionistas? My name is Morgan Basso and I’m a junior Public Relations major with a Writing minor here at Illinois State University. I spend most of my time sipping lattes from Starbucks, crying about how much I miss dance and obsessing over every aspect of my sorority. I live for sunny days by the pool with my girlfriends and heading back to my apartment just in time to put on a flirty dress with my highest heels for a night out.

Some of my favorite memories as a little girl involve heading to the mall with my mom and spending hours in Nordstrom admiring all the beautiful clothing and accessories, thus began my obsession with clothes and fashion. I’d be lying if I said we didn’t still occasionally head to the Oakbrook mall just to try on shoes and stare at David Yurman jewelry. I hope to one day make a career out of this odd obsession I have with clothing and all things glamorous.

My personal style is very diverse. Part of me is a tree hugging hippie expressed through my coveted lace Free People dress and strappy sandals. When I throw on one of my favorite short dresses and sky high Steve Madden heels I am a glamorous girly girl just looking to have a good time. During casual days filled with class or shopping, you can find me in my favorite high-waisted jean shorts, a loose Piko top, white high-top Converse and my favorite collection of bracelets on my wrist. My big aviator sunglasses are usually covering my face that I didn’t have time to put makeup on because my love for sleep comes before anything else.

I have big dreams to be involved in the fashion industry and I’m so grateful to CollegeFashionista for giving me this kickstart into the career I so badly desire! I cannot wait for my journey as a Style Guru and hope to give my readers some great advice on unique trends!
