STYLE GURU BIO: Rachael Guida

Hey everyone! I’m Rachael Guida. I’ll be one of your Style Gurus this semester giving advice about the dos and don’ts, the ins and outs, and everything in between. A little about myself: I attend the Fashion Institute of Technology, and I am majoring in advertising marketing and communications. I am from Long Island, New York, and I attended St. Dominic High School. I aspire to one day have my own brand of lingerie for larger busted girls. For most of my life, I have struggled with problems of my own in that particular area.  I would describe my style as “whatever”, I wear what I feel good in. I spend more time caring about dressing for my body and what I feel confident in, than dressing for the brands that everyone “should” be wearing. I believe it is much more important to have confidence than to pay for overpriced items just because other people deemed them trendy and that is a concept that is often lost or ignored. Don’t get me wrong, I am not cheap, I fully believe most items are sold for their worth. I just also believe that I could get a white t-shirt and cut holes in it too, Kanye West (no disrespect). My motto is: if you like it you buy it. Tom Haverford’s mantra, “treat yo’ self” is something I like to live by.  I am so excited to be a Style Guru for this coming semester and cannot wait to share my looks with the Fashionistas/os of the world!
