Hi, my name is Sarah Citrenbaum and i'm a junior at GWU. After spending my summer in New York City and blogging as a Style Guru for Columbia University, I am ecstatic to be back in my hometown of DC and eager to survey the streets for amazing style. Naturally, I am captivated by clothes and appreciative of unique and individual style, thus making it impossible for me not to be a huge fashion nerd, spending more time on blogs like the Sartorialist and WhoWhatWear than I should. As for my own style, you can usually find me in dark tones paired with loud vintage accessories, bold statement necklaces, and a chunky gold mens watch. I like to play with various silhouettes and shapes and usually pair high end designer pieces with cheaper thrift store finds. My favorite designers are Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, Diane von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs and Chloë Sevigny. They all have their own aesthetic for designing timeless pieces that translate to the masses impeccably. Their collections mix looks that are classic and refined with those that are more colorful and youthful, consistently taking risks, flirting with extremes, and reinventing trends, what fashion, and life, is really all about.
Besides fashion, I love traveling, concerts, yoga, and being with my friends. On top of writing for my favorite fashion blog this fall, I will be interning at Washington Life Magazine and taking classes related to my major and minor, Political Science with a Public Policy focus and Journalism. I plan to study abroad this spring in London or Paris. I can't wait to return to my old fashionable stomping grounds of Foggy Bottom and find inspiring looks!
With the site showing off a fabulous new skin, Style Guru’s debuting in different campuses all over the nation, and yet still remains to instill a chic perspective… suddenly a great attention has highlighted this via online sensation. College Fashionista only knows one way up the stairs and darling’s things are definitely looking up. I, Marko Alejo, am no stranger to these introductions. As the FIDM Los Angeles Style Guru and student the progression that surrounds me relays much excitement and a lot of inspiration. I’m still all about the model off duty, embracing your inner child, savvy steals, and statement pieces with a background history. I’m finishing up my last few quarters as a Visual Communications Major, working for Madewell eagerly anticipating the arrival of our new Alexa Chung Collection, and still on passionate focus on becoming a Nylon Magazine hopeful along with my other industry aspirations. Not much of my esthetics has changed but what has evolved is my understanding of how vital it is to raise your voice. No matter how little you think it is someone is listening. Style is a great form of communication it’s all around us everyday the trick is finding a moment to actually realize something and someone fantastic is right in front of you. With fall and winter slowly but surely coming I can’t wait to see “the elite” display the wonderful ensembles that only appear when temperatures go down. Let’s see socks with booties, over sized sweaters, outerwear, wrapped scarves, metallic and the leather. Everyone has a story to tell I just want to able to click it and type it so it doesn’t get overlooked. Let’s finish off the rest of the year with appreciating the most fashionable things that we own, ourselves.
