STYLE GURU BIO: Samantha Prasopthum

I am so happy to be introducing myself to all my lovely readers! I cannot express how excited I am to be a part of the Fashionista team.

My name is Samantha Prasopthum, but you guys can call me Sam. I am a sophomore at New York University studying photography and studio art. I am originally from Southern California, so living in New York City has been a complete dream come true. I am a photo assistant to a Brooklyn-based fashion photographer, and have had my work published in Glamour Magazine UK and on the Wendy Williams Show! I also work as a student teacher at an elementary school, and work in a second grade classroom. I love kids and their pure creativity and curiosity.

Fashion has always been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. I love being able to express myself through my clothes and style choices. I also dabbled in fashion design and construction for a few years, and even took classes with the Academy of Art!

Speaking of fashion, I wanted to tell you guys about my personal fashion for this winter! I chose a gold metallic skater dress from American Apparel for a festive feel and paired it with my pink sparkly heels! I also have my pink studded Michael Kors purse and a great pair of sunglasses. Since it is a bit chilly in California right now I also wore my thigh high socks and a cardigan to match.
