STYLE GURU BIO: Natalie Augustin

Hello there beauties! My name is Natalie Augustin and I am a senior at the University of Lincoln-Nebraska pursuing a major in Fashion Merchandising with a minor in Business. I love all things fashion so I’m very excited to be writing articles for CollegeFashionista!

I actually wasn’t always into fashion. In high school, I never dressed up or wore makeup and I was always seen in sweatpants. When I got to college, I chose a major in Political Science thinking that I wanted to be a politician, until I realized that politics are really boring and their outfits are usually pretty drab. I then knew that I needed and wanted to do something more on the creative side. Once I found out that Fashion Merchandising was an actual major, I became hooked and have loved dressing up and wearing fun makeup ever since. It has definitely become an addiction as I love watching award shows to see all the designers and to critique their work.

One of my favorite aspects of fashion is accessories. I adore purses and have a small shopping addiction when it comes to buying them. My favorite purse designer at the moment is Rebecca Minkoff with her super playful designs that also can be a bit edgy. I love following blogs and watching celebrities to see which new bags they are starting to carry  and what designers are hot at that moment.

Now that you have heard a little bit about me, I hope you are all as excited as I am to begin sharing fashion advice, discovering new trends, and discussing everything from footwear to beauty.
