STYLE GURU BIO: Valerie Gonzalez-Vega

They say time flies while you’re having fun, and this last year with CollegeFashionista has been just that. From the countless opportunities to the totally RAD ladies I get to work with every week. CollegeFashionista has become more than an internship for me, as I aspire to follow in former Style Guru Aisha Hatter’s footsteps in NYC. So for my newly joined Style Gurus welcome to the team! I hope to work with each of you at some point into this amazing opportunity and for those of you who have followed my journey as a Style Guru, Thanks! (Especially to you, mom.) This semester I will be focusing on my duties as Head Style Guru here at Texas State as well as juggling my jobs as a tour guide and event planner on campus.

My happiest days are when I am wanderlust-ing, experimenting with vegan recipes (celebrating one year baby!) and creating my personal brand. During this voyage my sense of style has somewhat refined itself but, green parkas, brimmed hats and cat printed anything are still solid staples in my everyday ensembles. My mantra for style comes from many outlets, art, foreign films even Mother Nature herself. This semester I will be writing from the lone star state every Thursday, so be sure to style stalk some immaculate bobcats and follow me on social media.
