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 P.E.! 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 summer 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 for a third semester! After spending a summer in the city away from my hometown in Manhattan Beach, California, it's clear that Boston has a lot of style and attitude. Commonweatlh Avenue is definitely not just a street but really a runway. In addition to snapping pictures of my favorite street style this fall, I am also a stylist at Madewell on Newbury Street. I am currently a junior at Boston University studying Film and Television in the College of Communication and minoring in Women’s Studies. This summer I was blown away by the Fashionistas/os that I found out on the streets so I know that fall style will be even more amazing. Watch out Fashionistas/os, I have my camera ready!
