STYLE GURU BIO: Victoria Mendoza

May 29th, 2015 at 2:00am

Hi everyone! My name is Victoria Mendoza, and I live and breathe fashion. As a beauty queen, model and procrastinating college student at Arizona State University, I’m constantly surrounded by this fast-paced world of beauty and fashion. When I’m not strutting on the runway or wearing a formal gown onstage, you can find me sporting my everyday-chic ensemble at school.

As a lifetime lover of fashion, my personal style is very feminine, bohemian and casual. Arizona is sunny almost year-round, so naturally, I find myself wearing a variety of shorts and tank tops often. When I’m feeling fancy, I’ll wear a loose sundress and some wedges. I’m also willing to bet that I have more sandals than anyone else in the world. I draw my inspiration from celebrities, music festivals and of course, fashion shows.

Aside from my passion for fashion, my one true love is and always has been writing. As a child I wrote poetry for my family and won my first writing contest in the sixth grade. Since then, I’ve dedicated my life to documenting my experiences and finding compelling stories to share.

Some other interesting things about me: I am a dog-lover, I enjoy juicing, I am addicted to black coffee and I’m a total bookworm.

CollegeFashionista combines my two most-valued interests in the most meaningful of ways. This summer I’ll be showing you how to stay in style, and I hope that you will join me through my fashion endeavors, as I capture the essence of Arizona State.
