While other first graders were playing with Barbies, I was playing with fashion. For hours I would force my younger sister to be my mannequin while I took the part of fashion designer, taping her into my prized one-of-a-kind newspaper dresses. My designs may not have been waterproof and they may have only been a one-time use, but they did make headlines, literally, they were made out of newspaper!
For as long as I can remember I have been was obsessed with fashion. In elementary school I was that kid that always had the matching headbands and dresses, and leaving the house in anything other than my clogs was just not an option. A few things may have changed since then, but to this day I am still captivated by the latest styles and trends and spend hours pouring through magazines and blogs to look for new ideas that I can incorporate into my own wardrobe.
Originally from Manhattan Beach, CA, a small town outside of Los Angeles, moving to the East Coast was a big change for me! Getting used to the Boston style and weather has been quite the challenge, but I have loved every minute of it! The Boston city girl is so sophisticated and I love looking for ways to combine that style with my beachy roots.
I am currently a sophomore studying film and television at Boston University, and as I walk down Commonwealth Ave, I definitely get to see my fair share of city style! From the T stops to the streets of Allston, BU Fashionistas/os are everywhere, setting new trends and living up the Boston style. I am so excited to be a CollegeFashionista Style Guru this semester and cannot wait to see what you stylish Boston Fashionistas and Fashionistos have in store for me!
