STYLE GURU BIO: Sharvelle Bullock

Third time’s the charm! I’m Sharvelle Bullock, and I am returning as a Style Guru for my third semester in a row. I am super excited to see what’s to come, and I can’t wait to share not only my style, but the trends and style of all the Fashionistas/os that I meet.

Born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicagoland, I learned at an early age that my love for fashion was more than a fascination. The more that I paid attention to it, the more I began to understand and fall in love with the industry. I have tried my hand at designing, illustration, fashion photography, blogging and even a little bit of modeling.

With only three semesters left at Illinois State University, my hope is to attend graduate school in New York. I love the fast pace, diverse cultures and ever changing style of the east coast.

My style is a bit like New York, a little bit of everything and a lot of fun. I usually match my style to my mood. My must have pieces in my closet are boots! I love boots, and the best part about them is that you can wear them in every season. Tall, short, fur, leather, heels and a large variety of colors, boots are my ultimate favorite.

I also love jewelry, particularly gold, I love chains, bangles and especially rings. No matter what I am wearing, I am always trying to find a way to incorporate gold accessories. Anyone who knows me, knows how ironic that is because about three years ago, I hated gold jewelry. I used to think it was loud and tacky. Diamonds and pearls were my best friends. I guess it just goes to show you how much style can evolve.

I can’t wait to see how other Fashionistas’ and Fashionistos’ styles have evolved this semester!
