STYLE GURU BIO: Paige Spychalski

Hey! My name is Paige Spychalski, and I am currently a junior at Columbia College Chicago with a major in fashion business! I breathe, sleep and live fashion everyday and have been ever since I was a little girl. I am one of those weird kids who is obsessed with school and would rather die than miss out on one of my classes! Everyday is something new at Columbia and around the city! I have a lot of experience in the retail sector of the fashion industry, since I have been working in retail for 4 years, as of October. I also love posting on any social media and getting my name out there! I have a YouTube channel and an Instagram page that are dedicated to my future fashion career.

If you had to ask someone about my personality, they would probably say I am funny, crazy and outgoing, and I would not disagree with them! My personality also translates to my fashion style. I am very well rounded with my style, and I do not believe in having to pick one style over the other. One day, I might want to dress preppy with a Banana Republic button up, but the day after you might catch me wearing my Tommy Hilfiger baseball cap with a bomber jacket. I love experimenting with new trends because you never know if you will like something until you try it. This is why fashion is so fun!

Talking about style, let’s talk about the look I decided to wear. We are transferring into more of a fall season with school right around the corner so I went with darker tones. I put on a very comfortable T-shirt dress from H&M and paired it with a vest to warm it up. A bit of detail can go a long way, so I added this double buckle belt from Nordstrom that has gold details. I added a brown block heel with a brown tone to match the belt.

I am very excited for this semester with CollegeFashionista, and I hope reading my bio got you excited for what else I have to show you all! Make sure to follow me on all my social media platforms to see what else I am up to!
