STYLE GURU BIO: Riley Johnson

Hey Fashionistas/os! My name is Riley, and I am a sophomore at the College of Charleston where I am studying hospitality and tourism management with a minor in entrepreneurship.  I have often thought about minoring in studio art considering my long standing love for photography.  Since this is my first semester as a Style Guru intern, I cannot wait to mingle around my campus and photograph some amazing Fashionistas.

After I graduate, I plan to work in the event planning industry, where I will build my name and salary so that I can eventually open up my own boutique.  This has been a dream of mine for the last three years, and I cannot wait to watch my dreams and aspirations bloom in the following years.

My interest in fashion started when I was young.  You could always find me rummaging through my closet as well as my mom’s, to find something to play dress up with.  I believe in expressing yourself to the best of your abilities, and I guess playing dress up was where I really began expressing myself.

If you know me, you know that I care a lot about what I wear when I step out of the house.  Whether I am walking to go get ice cream, going to class or going out for a night on the town, I have thought clearly about what I am putting on my body.  When it comes to going to class, I love wearing sundresses, boyfriend jeans and loose shirts, which are my definition of comfort.  And also you will never catch me without my sunglasses or my watch, which are my two favorite accessories.

I am so excited to be working as a Style Guru intern this fall, and I cannot wait to see what new opportunities will be brought my way.
