My name is Lauren and I am incredibly excited to join the team as a Style Guru for the University of Oregon campus. As a rising senior Journalism major with the “real world” inching closer every day, a career in fashion is always on my mind.
My love for fashion blossomed towards the end of my high school basketball career when I decided to trade in my Nikes for Nine West (they were the first pair of heels I owned). Gradually I developed a passion and appreciation for the art of vogue that continues to grow as I learn and experiment more.
I would say classic with a rocker chic edge is an appropriate way to classify my personal style. I definitely have an obsession with black clothing—the simplicity and eternally-stylish element captures me every time. My friends poke fun at my closet stocked with every neutral you can imagine.
Accessories are a guaranteed way to glam up any outfit. Gold accessories, specifically, have become a weakness of mine and bags in all shapes, styles and colors have depleted my bank account. I enjoy the thrill of thrift shopping and finding hidden treasures at Forever 21. Other favorites include Asos.com, Topshop, Modcloth and Planet Blue online (although I can rarely afford anything from there).
I can’t wait to get started and I hope I can provide you all with a wide array of unique and expressive styles that surround the UO campus. Feel free to contact me with any questions!
