STYLE GURU BIO: Savannah Riese

Hello there, Fashionistas! My name is Savannah but I’m known as Sav around campus! This is my second semester with CollegeFashionista and I am thrilled to be back after a semester off! Currently, I am in the midst of my junior year at Bradley University as an advertising and Spanish double major. I am a Minnesotan at heart but am currently calling Peoria, IL my home. I will be spending this spring semester in Madrid, Spain so you may see some posts regarding some Spaniard fashion coming your way!

A little bit about me: I am obsessed with coffee, I love Twenty-One Pilots, The 1975, Pink Floyd, and shoes. My guilty pleasure is jamming out to Jason Derulo (usually “If It Ain’t Love” or “Kiss The Sky”) in my red Honda Accord named Rhonda. Some of my favorite brands include Calvin Klein, Puma, Nine West, and NYX. My newest obsession is the NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick. Most of the time, if someone sees me on campus, I’ve got an iced Caramel Macchiato in one hand, my phone in the other, and I probably look like I am running to meet some sort of deadline.

Since this winter has seemingly crept up on us, winter fashion staples have started to appear all over campus. Pea coats, knee-high boots, blanket scarves, and beanies galore! My favorite time of year for fashion is winter because layers, layers, and more layers. The possibilities are endless! I don’t think I could put an exact title on my fashion taste. Some days you’ll find me wearing some super trendy pants with a trench coat and riding boots. But some days I cave and wear leggings, a Twenty One Pilots T-shirt, and a jean jacket with a chunky scarf and combat boots. Basically, I usually take what is trending and put my own little twist on it by adding chunky pieces I find at the thrift store or in my mom’s closet. I am slightly obsessed with professional wear and love incorporating blazers and blouses into my everyday style choices. My collection of black flats, boots, and sneakers is my closet staple.

This outfit really reflects what I would consider to be a typical Savannah outfit. I am wearing my favorite pair of black jeans, a black and white pinstripe blouse, my classic jean jacket, one of my many pairs of black flats, with a scarf to top it all off!

I will leave you Fashionistas with one of my favorite quotes: “With coffee and a little bit of mascara, you can conquer anything.” Let’s conquer the world this semester, Fashionistas!
