Hello there Fashionistas/os! My name is Tiffany Borrego and I am a junior at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. I am currently double majoring in international and global studies and Spanish language and I am so thrilled to be back as a Style Guru and social media intern for CollegeFashionista this fall.
I grew up in Tampa, Florida in a Venezuelan and Cuban household so culture is a big thing, especially when it comes to food. I love photography, writing, music, filming, drawing, playing instruments and traveling. I have become obsessed with social media within the past few years, specifically Instagram, YouTube and Snapchat because of my love for photography. I feel like these platforms can unite people with the same passions and showcase your own favorite things in a completely different way with every post that is made.
For those of you who know me, you know that my favorite colors are black and white. In my past three Style Guru Bios, I have talked about how much I love dressing in black. There’s a quote that says, “Yesterday I wore black. Today I am wearing black. Tomorrow I will wear black,” and I live by that quote religiously. But in regards to my fashion sense, it is honestly all over the board. Some days I feel like I’m a punk rocker for the early 2000s and dress in black jeans with black combat boots, then other days I feel like a basic white girl at Coachella with a fringe vest and crochet top. That’s the best part about fashion—it is something that you can change every day and be who you want to be with only changing what you’re wearing. Being a Fashionista has definitely expanded my love for different styles and colors as well.
Today’s look shows my preppy side with some printed shorts, a flowy white top and my favorite pair of Sperry Top-Siders. I added my Alex and Ani bracelets which have become a tradition because of their monthly recurrence in every one of my CF posts; my Louis Vuitton Neverfull and a voluminous braid to accessorize my outfit. To be completely honest with you, my preppy side never really shows itself unless I wear shorts like these with boat shoes, but I paired preppy with boho so mixing styles is definitely becoming a comfortable way to dress for me.
This is my fourth semester with CollegeFashionista and I know that this is going to be the best one yet. Being able to express myself through fashion, photography, writing and social media with hundreds of other people that love the same things I like to do is an amazing thing that I am blessed to be a part of. I can’t wait to get to know you all and don’t forget to follow me on my social media @TiffanyGeovana!
