Style Guru Bio: Sarah Citrenbaum

Hi! I’m Sarah Citrenbaum and I am a junior at GWU. This will be my third semester writing for CollegeFashionista and my third city as well. I started out at Columbia University in New York City when I was interning at a Public Relations firm there this past summer, and I continued into fall semester at my school, George Washington University in my home of Washington, D.C. I am so excited to continue for the spring in London, where I am spending my semester abroad. I’m eager and interested to see how trends across the pond are translated into cohesive street wear and how this differs from American style. 

As for my own style, I am consistently pairing high-end designer pieces with cheaper boutique finds and could spend all day sifting through the racks at vintage stores. I love the mod look as well as 1920s fashion, yet I will always have a soft spot for classic preppy and conservative pieces. I love scanning blogs for inspiration and can’t get enough of Lookbook and The Sartorialist. My favorite designers are Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, Diane von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs and Chloë Sevigny. I am a big believer in flirting with different patterns, silhouettes, and extremes, while still maintaining a refined and put together look. I love the idea of personal style, and the concept of waking up everyday and having endless options of how we want to express ourselves through clothes is what drives me and gets me out of bed. Fashion is exciting, just how life should always be. I can’t wait to see what the UK has in store!

Style Guru Bio: Sarah Citrenbaum

My name is Sarah Citrenbaum and I am a junior at The George Washington University, yet I am currently a Style Guru at Columbia University since I am interning at a Public Relations firm in New York City this summer. I have two loving parents, Judi and Dan and twin brothers, Bryan and Michael.  I have to say that growing up in the city (I am a DC native) and going to school in the city have given me an elevated passion for fashion. Since I see amazing clothes and blossoming trends first hand on the streets everyday, it is only natural that I am captivated by clothes and appreciative of unique and individual style. You can usually find me wearing dark tones (black is my favorite color when it comes to clothes, something about it just oozes sophistication) paired with loud and fun accessories (I love bold statement necklaces and I am a strappy sandal fanatic). My favorite designers are Marc Jacobs and Chloe Sevigny. They both have an aesthetic for designing timeless pieces that have a youthful and funky flair and the range of colors and textures they use is unbelievable and extremely impressive. When I am not meticulously scanning Vogue, sampling products at Sephora, or procrastinating studying by reading fashion blogs, you can find me in nylon leggings, baggy blouses,and high waisted skirts studying or lounging around campus with my friends. Along with fashion and beauty, I love working out, city life, trying out new restaurants, soccer, going to concerts, and traveling. I am so excited to be writing for my favorite fashion blog and can't wait to survey the city for amazing looks. Style on!
