Style Guru Bio: Elizabeth McNamara

I am ecstatic to begin this fall as a Guru! I am a sophomore at the University of Oregon majoring in Journalism and Public Relations and I am here to help you stay stylish no matter what the weather may bring you. I am from Palos Verdes, Calif., a suburb of Los Angeles.

Living close to the ocean breeze has been more than a scent for me. The relaxed atmosphere of Los Angeles beach cities is reflected in my style.  My style ranges from bohemian to classic. You can find beachwear all the way to vintage clothes from the '70s just within my closet. I indulge in belts, necklaces, handbags and of course shoes to complete my variety of looks.

I have always been intrigued by fashion from textures, silhouettes, vintage and anything lace. I raid my mother’s closet finding vintage Gucci to bright disco spandex jeans. My family has a history in fashion and I am lucky enough to steal their vintage pieces, which inspires my everyday style.

My style reflects my personality as well as the mood that day. Boyfriend shorts are my secret weakness because they are comfortable yet stylish. You can never have too many shoes because they really do complete the outfit.  My closet ranges from Forever 21 to Saks Fifth Avenue. I believe you should always invest in a few classic timeless pieces.

Dressing down to dressing up has never been so much fun because I have a large range of style. From jeans to the classic little black dress, I will guide you to fashion success and for you to make your college a real living runway. Stomp with me (in our army-inspired boots of course) through the journey of college fashion.
