Hey Fashionistas! My name is Tara Stacy, and I am a Journalism major, Psychology minor at Ithaca College.
My fashion obsession began with my love for playing dress-up as a child, which has seemingly continued into my adulthood. Playing dress-up was a way to express myself and to feel confident in what I was wearing, and I still do that today. I feel that fashion is a beautiful form of self-expression that allows women and men to be whoever they want to be.
My love for reading also allowed me to discover the wonderful world that is the magazine industry. I loved seeing the gorgeous spreads and picturing myself in the clothes that the models were wearing, and dreamed of one day being able to play in the coveted Teen Vogue closet and put outfits together for a photo-shoot.
I would describe my style as eclectic, because what I wear completely depends on my mood and the season. In the summer I tend to gravitate towards more boho pieces, while in the fall and winter my style is much more minimalistic. However, the one constant in my wardrobe for years has been neutrals, especially the color black.
One of the staple pieces in my wardrobe is pictured in the look above, a classic black biker jacket from Forever 21. I paired it with my favorite black jeans from Topshop, a neutral tank top from Brandy Melville and some snakeskin flats from Steve Madden to finish off the look.
My main style icons would have to be Cara Delevingne, Olivia Palermo and Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat. I take a lot of inspiration from fashion blogs, and my favorite app is Instagram, which I scroll through regularly throughout the day for outfit ideas.
I’m so excited to document the amazing style of the people on my campus, and to take you all along for the ride this semester!
