Style Guru Bio: Helen Ji

Fashion and I have a long history together. I grew up with fashion, going back to the days when I would wear Cinderella glass slippers to pre-school with the entire tiara ensemble. Although my wardrobe has drastically changed from my former princess look, fashion has always been a dear old friend even to this day. Fashion was by my side while I grew up in Los Angeles,  and even when I moved to South Korea a few years ago. Now I'm a sophomore at Boston University studying Public Relations with a minor in Business Administration, and Fashion and I are closer than ever. 

I believe everyone has their own style, a style created by the accumulation of inspiration. Inspiration that comes from magazines, films, music, people on the street, poems, light, random conversations – basically anywhere. My accumulation of style has grown and changed over the years but I have a propensity to dress the way I feel. In other words, my outfit literally changes with my mood. Sometimes I'll feel like a diva and wear killer heels with a fierce face. Other times I'll feel like an artsy hipster and rock my combat boots with a oversized plaid shirt. I'll even have days when I'll just wear shorts, a tank top and flip flops and represent Californian swag. Now I have the privilege of writing for CollegeFashionista and I am prepared to do so with zest. Like Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.” And with this quote, I leave you Fashionistas/os with the hope of running into you and seeing where you take your style to.
