STYLE GURU BIO: Steph Kilgore

May 27th, 2015 at 1:37am

My name is Steph Kilgore and I am beyond excited to be interning with CollegeFashionista this summer! I just finished my second year at West Chester University of Pennsylvania, majoring in Communication Studies, and minoring in Spanish and International Business. My dream job would be to do PR for a big-line fashion/merchandising company.

My lifestyle is very active and busy. You will most often see me running around campus in a workout outfit, trying to make it to class and the gym and the library all in one piece. During the summer, I enjoy working at Coach where I have been working since last fall. In-between shifts you can find me hiding in a book or making a day trip to the beach.

All through middle school and high school, I fell victim to yoga pants and sweatshirts, refusing to wear any makeup to school. I was so lazy with my style, and I thought that was who I was destined to be. Once I got to college however, my fashion sense changed. I loved that people could wear whatever they wanted and it inspired me to spice up my style a little more. While I still wear cropped yoga pants, they’re usually from lululemon, and I am a sucker for any cute workout tank.

My two obsessions are shoes and purses. A few of my faves are my bead-studded black stilettos from Coach, my diamond-studded nude flats from ALDO and my black and white tote from Stella and Dot. My outfit choices are pretty simple, spiced up by fun shoes or big jewelry. If I had to describe my style, I would say it is simplistic and ever changing. I like to find fun things from all different kinds of places; outlet stores, malls, thrift stores, online, etc. I don’t really have a preference, just as long as it fits my style and I feel comfortable.

I am so exited for this summer so I can break out of my comfort zone and experiment with new fashion trends! I am looking forward to all the new things I plan on learning this summer as a Style Guru!
