Hello beautiful Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Shivani Patel and this is my second semester here at CollegeFashionista. If I could eat one food for the rest of my life it would be a classic cheese pizza. One thing a lot of people don’t know about me is that I have a deep love for old school hip-hop and take great interest in legends like Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur and Aaliyah. Usually, you will find me either in the library on my work grind studying for midterms or in a coffee shop brainstorming ideas for fashion designs. On my down time, I am an avid photographer and spend my time capturing city life and bold architecture.
Currently, I am in New Zealand, and have been traveling around the world. I just spent a few days in Austrailia and Fiji for an Indian wedding! In a few more days I will be off to India and Dubai. So far, I have seen The Harbor Bridge, The Sydney Opera House and Fiji’s breathtaking Nadi Island. This summer has been an adventure and I am excited especially for India, because it is a country rich with culture. As for my outfit, I chose to wear something comfortable and casual. By traveling to all these wonderful places, I had to also spend a wonderful time on a plane. With this in mind, I wrapped a Forever 21 flannel around my waist and wore my Court Royal Nike shoes. Lastly, I rocked my Miu Miu glasses so I could easily choose to either sleep or read during my long flight.
Traveling has opened my eyes to new cultures and new ideas; however, it makes me even more appreciative for what I have back home. I am a proud Californian Style Guru and I very excited for what this semester has in store!
