STYLE GURU BIO: Tiffany Borrego

Hello to all my fellow Fashionistas/Fashionistos! My name is Tiffany Borrego and I am a junior at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, back again for my fifth semester with CollegeFashonista! I am 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 this spring!

Writing my Style Guru Bio is one of my favorite things to do during the semester because it really gives the readers an opportunity to learn more about me and other Style Gurus. I grew up in Tampa, Florida with a Venezuelan mom and a Cuban dad. Ever since I was really little, I have been obsessed with fashion and beauty. I would raid my mom’s closet and try on her size seven high heels, put on red lipstick, and strut around the house. This sparked a big interest in first, the color red, and second, fashion and beauty. Apart from that, my dad is a journalist and always exposed me to the world of writing and photography. I now love photography, writing, music, filming, playing instruments, and traveling. Within the past few years, I have become obsessed with social media, especially Instagram, YouTube and Snapchat because of my love for photography.

My closet is 99 percent black, but if a piece isn’t black, it’s probably black and white. One of my favorite quotes is, “Yesterday I wore black. Today I am wearing black. Tomorrow I will wear black,” and I always say that I live by that quote religiously. Having this obsession is really great because it gives me the chance to experiment with different fashion styles but still stick to a comfort zone. My style usually ranges from hipster to preppy-chic to rocker to boho. While I also do love experimenting with prints and other colors, but black is always my go-to for everything.

Today, I decided to show you all a super cute winter outfit because… I am studying abroad in Madrid, Spain for the next four months! I am thrilled to be able to be across the pond and living the European tourist life for a few months, so I definitely wanted to showcase my stereotypical tourist outfit for my bio this semester. I’m rocking a Star Wars ugly Christmas sweater (I know, it’s not Christmas time anymore but I’m a huge Star Wars fan…) that is perfect for the 25 degree weather I am attempting to survive. Parkas, like the one I’m wearing, are very popular in Europe because they’re light but keep you warm, and I always style mine with some basic jeans and comfortable leather boots for walking. I’m also rocking my new and super cute Quicksilver backpack that I got here that is perfect for traveling and for school!

I can’t wait to get to know you all and don’t forget to follow me on my social media to check out my adventures in Spain!
