Hello wonderful fashion friends! My name is Emily and this will be my second semester writing for CollegeFashionista, but first as the Head Style Guru. I am beyond excited to spice things up this semester and give you a real taste of what Indiana University fashion is all about. I am an Apparel Merchandising/Business/Fashion Design student and will be moving to and working in Cleveland, OH in May. As I finish up my time at IU, I’ve found that there is nothing I love more than spending a lazy day on Kirkwood Avenue trend watching. The kinds of style that I am interested in are too numerous to mention, as I try to see the beauty in all taste. However, my personal style has recently evolved into somewhat of a J.Crew/Banana Republic Mecca. Of course I stay loyal to vintage and Forever 21, and I still love having an Urban Outfitters day here and there. What I really attempt most in my personal style and what I look for in fellow Fashionistas is confidence. Without confidence, there is no beauty in the clothing a Fashionista puts on her back. With it, she can light up a room, or in our case, a classroom. So be confident, IU, I’m always on the lookout for my next fashion feature!
