STYLE GURU BIO: Samantha Kelly

Hello Fashionistas/os! I’m Samantha Kelly and I am a Fashion Merchandising major at SUNY Oneonta. I am thrilled to be back for a second time as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista! Fashion is a major part of my life and CollegeFashionista is a great platform for me and for others to share our love for fashion. Since this is my second semester as a Style Guru I have found that I have grown and changed my style rapidly because of the influence of the other Style Gurus and it has been such an amazing experience. With that being said, I believe the thing that I admire most about fashion is that it gives people the opportunity to be creative and show their personality through what they wear and by seeing the other Style Gurus, I find my style to become even more versatile!

Ever since I could remember fashion has been a significant aspect in my everyday life. It has always been an outlet and a way for me to represent myself. For the longest time I always had seen fashion as a hobby, but than I had an epiphany and decided, why not make my hobby into a career? My goal in life is to be able to make a career out of my passion and to be able to inspire others to use clothing as an extension of themselves because everyone’s inner beauty can be seen through their creativity on the outside. For instance, in this photo shoot I decided to show off my fun and flirty style with a white lace romper, matched with brown leather heels, a brown leather bag and gold accessories. I love that my style can change each and everyday, and I can show off all the different sides of myself. One day I can want a fun, flirty look and the next could be an edgy, sophisticated look! The best thing about fashion is that it is always evolving and so is my style!

But overall, the most important thing to know about me is that I am never afraid to try something new and am always looking for a new style or trend to try! Fashion is my way of expressing myself and I hope that my posts on here allow you all to get out and try something new and fun! Here is to another semester and more trends to try!
