STYLE GURU BIO: Peri Paul

Hi there, Fashionistas/os! My name is Peri Paul and I am going to be a sophomore at Indiana University majoring in Apparel Merchandising and minoring in Business and   Fashion Design. I am so excited to begin my internship as an official Style Guru for the very first time!

My love for fashion began as soon as the pink booties were placed on my feet when I left the hospital back in 1996. Since then, the pink definitely stuck. You can still find me rocking booties, even though the heels might be a little higher and they might not be pink, though most of my other wardrobe essentials are. I currently work at Victoria’s Secret PINK part-time—I told you, everything in my life is pink! Many special people in my life have influenced my love for sewing and design. I watched them create everything, from bridal gowns to prom dresses, and I knew I was meant to follow.

Although I’m from a small Indiana town, I sometimes convince myself that I’m a shoe-in for the next cameo on Gossip Girl and adjust my wardrobe accordingly. I currently look out my window and see cornfields, but one day I hope to pursue my dream career as a buyer for a company in a big city and see a bustling metropolis outside my office window.

I love floral prints and bright colors, so I’m quite excited that its springtime! My favorite spring outfit includes a floral sundress, light cardiganwedges and a bold lipstick. I love wardrobe pieces that can be transformed in different seasons, as well as with multiple outfits. I also love to experiment with mixing patterns and textures, and can’t wait to learn more about it all!

Beyond just the textile side of fashion, I love makeup. I could spend hours at Sephora comparing color swatches and experimenting with new products. I love the way different makeup looks can go with outfits, and I could spend hours creating a new one!

I am beyond thrilled to begin this internship this summer, and I can’t wait to see what other opportunities it brings me! I’m so excited to observe other fashions and I hope you all are too! I know I am going to fall in love with this blog, and am ready to learn more about other individual styles, my own style and the world of fashion!
