STYLE GURU BIO: Samie Thaler

Hey there, readers! Since you’re here I can only assume I’ve sent you this link or you’re a dedicated fan so thank you for taking the time to read my very first post! I’m now a senior at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, studying retail merchandising and management.

As cheesy as this may sound, I’ve been a Fashionista since birth; I remember that even at a young age I was picking out my own outfits and giving unsolicited advice about my family members’ choices. I used to make sketches of outfits I’d make when I became a fashion designer, and in high school I was voted best dressed. But as I grew up, this dream was put on the back-burner and I focused more on school and less on my passions.

When I found out about my school’s retail merchandising program during my freshman year I was elated. It had everything I was looking for: fashion, creativity, real life application and even a minor from the business school.

Since starting my major I’ve become even more interested in fashion, and especially trends in the Minneapolis area. My style can be described as classic feminine with an edgy twist. Being a college and sorority girl I have the chance to dress for a million different types of occasions and each of these styles comes out depending on where I am, who I’m with and what we’re doing.

Thanks for reading. I absolutely can not wait to get started blogging this summer!
