STYLE GURU BIO: Myriam Harvey

September 3rd, 2015 at 2:00am

Hello Fashionistas/os! My name is Myriam Harvey, and I am currently a junior enrolled in Oakton Community College. I am majoring in both Nursing and Biology. Even though my major isn’t the most fashionable one, I somehow find a way to make my white lab coat very chic.

Ever since I was younger, I have been in love with fashion. In kindergarten, even though I had to wear a uniform, I would always find ways of standing out, even if that meant getting in trouble for wearing pink light up sneakers with my school uniform. In fifth grade, when my class did superlatives, I got “most likely to be a future fashion diva,” and 10 years later, look at where I am now. Like most Fashionistas, I have to thank my mom for my love for fashion. She has let me play with her makeup and clothes ever since I was old enough to walk.

My favorite thing about fashion is that you can have so much fun with it. Fashion is the way I can make a good first impression without even saying a word. I am a very confident person and I think the way I dress has something to do with that. I am a firm believer that an outfit can really alter your mood. There’s nothing I like to see more than styling one of my friends and looking at them stare in the mirror with the biggest smile on their face, not only because I found a killer outfit that looks amazing on them but because by wearing that outfit they gained confidence.

I would say my personal style is very girly and playful. I’m not afraid to play and work with different pieces. I am a big fan of sequin and sparkly items. I also love blazers and watches because I think they are classic and never go out of style. Although trendy is very in style now, classic never fades. One of biggest fashion icons is Coco Chanel. Since I’m shorter, I’m obsessed with booties because they are a fun and comfortable way to make you taller. You will see from my articles that I love the color black, everything from black sweaters to black purses. I also love floral and fun unique prints.

When I am not studying for school, I am usually hanging out with my friends. I am the type of girl who loves adventures. I love going to EDM concerts or to the beach, and I just love doing fun and new things. Although I live in the suburbs, I am a huge city girl. There’s just something about the city lights and walking down Chicago that makes me feel right at home.

I am beyond excited to be a new edition to the CollegeFashionista team! I am ready for a #RAD semester. Chanel once said, “Every day is a fashion show and the world is your runway.” Hope you make this semester your runway.
