My name is Shana Cothran and I am a freshman at GWU majoring in International Affairs. I grew up in on the beaches of Turkey and in the suburbs of North Carolina. Traveling back and forth across the world, I developed an infatuation with fashion. The history, culture and people of cities like Megeve, Los Angeles, London and Istanbul inspire the Fashionista in me. My fashion icons are Dree Hemingway, Mary-Kate Olsen and Erin Wasson. Before CollegeFashionista, I worked at Burt’s Bees as an assistant/intern for the Director of Sustainability and as a communications intern for the GFI (NGO) in DC. My style is easily influences and continues to change as I travel the globe. After living in Costa Rica for two months, this summer, I would now describe my style as relaxed or ”Pura Vida,” yet still edgy. Despite my geographically inspired taste, I am still loyal to my Chloé sunglasses, James Perse tees, vintage polo black leather jacket, Balenciaga black motorcycle bag, Bobbie Brown liquid eyeliner gel, Mac nude lipstick and of course Burt’s Bees lip balm. This new phenomenon of fashion blogging serves as great inspiration for fellow Fashionistas! Karl Lagerfeld's quotes always keep me entertained, my favorite one thus far is, "Vanity is the healthiest thing in life.".
