Hey Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Tara Rebuck and I study Communication at SUNY Geneseo with a concentration in Media and Journalism. Unfortunately it is my last semester in college, as I am graduating in May, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be the best one yet!

Some fun facts about me: I love drawing, photography, skiing, traveling, listening to music, scuba diving and am obsessed with painting my nails (currently I own over 300 nail polishes—oops!). I also love looking up new recipes and attempting to cook and try new foods (in love with caprese pasta)!

I spent my first semester in college studying abroad in Siena, Italy, when I first became a fashion addict. I had the opportunity to visit Milan, Venice, and Florence where I was exposed to a multitude of different styles and clothes. I probably spent a little too much on my own closet, but when in Europe why not live it up?

If you’re wondering about my personal taste in fashion you should know I am obsessed with sparkles, necklaces, dresses, and always looking cute even when you’re just spending the day at home. My favorite places to shop at are Forever 21, H&M, Charlotte Russe and NASTY GAL. I believe that even when spending less you can still attain those designer looks from the runway.

I’m very excited to be a new Style Guru for the CollegeFashionista team this upcoming semester! Spring is the perfect time to take out your florals, bright colors, and sandals to brighten up the fashion world from those winter blues! Check back every Tuesday to see more fashion tips and styles from SUNY Geneseo’s campus!
