STYLE GURU BIO: Paige Woiner

Hello there, Fashionistas/os! I’m Paige Woiner, and I’m a junior broadcast journalism major and an English minor at Penn State University. Fashion, like writing, is a true passion of mine, so I’m very excited to be a part of the CollegeFashionista team for another semester!

My love of fashion started back many years ago. In high school, I always liked to dress up, and I wasn’t one to be seen in sweatpants. As I entered into college, my style transformed into quite chic, urban and rocker. No matter what style of clothes I wear, I can’t go anywhere without fixing myself up to look my best. Every day is a blank canvas with the opportunity for creativity and expression, and that’s what I love so much about fashion.

About a year ago, I wanted to do something really bold. I chopped off my hair and got a pixie. I used to have hair that fell down to nearly my belly button. In January 2014, I cut it to my shoulders and then I eventually went shorter and shorter until it reached pixie level in August 2014.  They say cutting your hair is an addiction, and they’re right.

Other than a writer and a Fashionista, I am also a dancer. I have been a competitive dancer my entire life, and I am trained in multiple different styles. My favorites would have to be hip-hop and contemporary. Like fashion, dancing is a way to express yourself. I love how it can tell a story without any words at all.

I’m very excited to share the unique fashion at Penn State University for the spring semester! Be on the lookout, it’s going to be rad!

Like what you see? I’m rocking my favorite Dr. Marten’s boots, ripped American Eagle jeans and Brandy Melville flannel!
