Style Guru Bio: Celia Hubbard

Other girls played with dolls, but when I was five I loved fashion! For hours I would force my younger sister to play dress up with me. We would run around in my mom’s high heels and silk slips saying that we were movie stars. At six I started my own fashion line, making clothes out of newspaper and stickers. My business was very successful, however the clothes didn’t exactly last too long. In first grade I was the kid that broke the dress code because I refused to wear anything but jelly sandals, which apparently were not acceptable for PE! I didn’t care, they were my favorite shoes and I loved them!

Today things are pretty much the same! I love finding the perfect heels or that unique blouse that you know will be a showstopper. Although my jelly sandals have gone out of style (I am convinced they will make a comeback, just you wait), my love for fashion has not! Writing for CollegeFashionista this last spring was an amazing opportunity to really search the streets of Boston for Fashionistas and Fashionistos that are the diamonds in the rough. Magazines and online blogs are the perfect place to draw inspiration from, but there is nothing like being inspired by someone walking down the street. I was a people watcher before, but now I am even more addicted! I absolutely love the versatile style of Boston, mostly because you never know what you are going see.

I am so excited to be writing for CollegeFashionista once again while spending my very first summer living in Boston away from my family and friends back in Manhattan Beach, California! Already I can tell that the Boston summer look is something very different from my beachy roots, and while it has taken a little getting used to, I absolutely love it! That is one of my favorite things about fashion, it is always changing and there is always a new style or look to experiment with.

In addition to snapping pics of my favorite Fashionista and Fashionisto street style, I will also be working as a stylist at Madewell on Newbury Street, interning and taking a few summer school classes. I am currently a junior at Boston University studying film and television in the College of Communication and minoring in Women’s Studies. I was so impressed with the spring style, I cannot wait to see what summer has to offer! Watch out Fashionistas and Fashionistos, I have my camera ready!
