STYLE GURU BIO: Rodney Miller

Hey, Style Gurus, my name is Rodney Miller. I know, I know, boys name and all, but it’s part of my unique tomboy-ish chick charm. I go to Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island and will be a junior come September. I can’t wait! I am studying to be a marketing major with a double minor in business administration and English communications.

I’m pretty versatile person. Though I’m fully up to date on all things pop culture, I can easily be found jamming to the oldies, indie and even a country song or two. Like my taste in music, my style is pretty sporadic. For the most part, I would say that I dress more boho than anything. As of late, though, I have been trying to add a new summer edge.

I am all into mixing revamped vintage into this pop culture look to satisfy my crave for edge. These high-waisted shorts are black vintage shorts that have been bleached and frayed at the bottom. I picked them up at an antique store here in Newport! I always tend to find some great clothing items in the “dust collector” stores…sorry allergies. Tucked into these bad boys is a graphic T-shirt. I’ve accumulated so many of these shirts over the years. My favorites include this “Sunny breeze” pineapple tank, a Rolling Stones V-neck, and a series of comfortable FBI shirts my dad gets from work.

So many days this summer I have felt like I’ve been quite literally running errands, so I throw on my Stan’s by Adidas for the events. These shoes are the necessity in my closet and I definitely over wear them, as noted by their “not so white anymore” look. I read a quote recently that’s become the summer motto: “nice tans and dirty Stans.”

My go-to arm bling is my gold watch by Kate Spade. It’s easy to throw on and doesn’t slide around while I do my work. I wish I could say I use it to tell time, but it’s really just my arm candy. For the finishing touches to this look, I wear layered necklaces around my neck. The smallest necklace is the Italian horn that my aunt gave me for my high school graduation. I never take it off. Next, is a piece of quartz wrapped in gold wire on a black rope. The longest necklace is a black and gold fringe that I recently picked up on one of my shopping sprees.
