Hi fellow fashion lovers! My name is Laura, and I’m a senior majoring in Communications/Media Studies at Fordham University. I’ve spent my whole college life working at my favorite stores, like Juicy Couture, Barney’s, and Vince. These stores definitely fostered my love for fashion, but I decided to take things a step further last semester. I spent the first half of my semester interning at Harper’s Bazaar, and then I switched over to an internship doing PR for a known shoe designer (which I’m also continuing this semester). My experience with shoes and with working in retail has definitely taught me to invest in key pieces that will last a long time, like a classic pair of black pumps or a leather jacket, and to save on basic layering pieces. This experience has also taught me that you can always make anything in your closet work for any occasion, with the right accessories.
When I’m not interning, working or writing for CollegeFashionista, I’m reading my favorite fashion blogs (like Who What Wear and FabSugar) or stalking sites like RueLaLa and Gilt Groupe for new additions to my wardrobe. I also love exploring what New York City has to offer, whether it’s trying a belly dancing class, checking out a new restaurant, or even finding a Fashionista or Fashionisto to photograph. I look forward to another semester writing for CollegeFashionista!
