Hello everyone, my name is Paige Hardman and I am a senior management consulting major at the University of Notre Dame. I am now entering my fifth semester as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista and am loving it more each day! Initially I applied in order to procure a new creative outlet and stay connected to the fashion world, while I study at a school not typically known for style. Little did I know that I would soon meet and become close with other Style Gurus across the country!
This past summer, I interned in press and communications for Eddie Borgo, an accessories designer in New York City. While I am originally from Pittsburgh, I absolutely fell in love with NYC immediately. Through my internship, I was able to learn to navigate exciting parts of the city. After work, I often met up with friends to do tourist activities and find new favorite locations. Some highlights included brunch at Cafe Henrie, finding bubble tea for $1 and seeing Binx while strolling through Chinatown! I also enjoyed attending two Style Guru meet-ups where I made new friends from different colleges.
Back at school, we experience a wide range of weather patterns which allows for more possible outfit combinations throughout the year. I tend to gravitate towards neutral colors, and often opt for a bold lip color. I will pair Adidas sneakers with every outfit. My favorite color is black, I hate vanilla ice cream and I am currently binge watching (and obsessing over) Stranger Things on Netflix. Looking forward to a RAD semester with CollegeFashionista!
