This week’s Campus celebrity is a fashionista whose bold but elegant style offers a combination of timelessness and simplicity with a tint of funkiness.

Which people would you say have influenced your style?

What are some other influences to your style?
Audrey Hepburn, Katharine Hepburn, all the Hepburns… and bloggers and websites. I have nostalgia for the 50’s silhouette style. I also have done a lot of experimenting, lots of trial and error… lots of error… those were just horrible.

Do you have a favorite blog or website?

Uhm, yes. Lisa Freemont’s blog (http://lisafremontpages.blogspot.com/) and http://www.collegefashion.net/ are my favorites. I think they are really interesting and straightforward.

Do you have favorite colors you like to wear?

Hmm, not favorite colors. I just wear what looks good on me. Sadly, yellow does not. I have a hard time trying to find something to wear for convocation.

How about accessories?

I love post earrings, like 80’s geometric shapes. Necklaces I just don’t wear. If I do, they are mostly high on the neckline, or pearls. I wear one ring: my mother’s wedding ring. I think its Amethyst?

How do you plan what you wear?

This is what I do. I wake up in the morning, and the first thing I do is check the weather. Then I shower and visualize what I want to wear. If it doesn’t look good, I change it!

What is one word to describe your style?
Classic.

Where do you shop?

Thrift stores, Forever 21 (who doesn’t?!), consignment stores, target, and my mom’s closet!

What advice would you have for people who aren’t sure how to create their own style?

Get inspiration from blogs! Magazines are good too, but they are a bit too commercialized. Look at lots of pictures. Also, buy something you think you would never wear and try to find a way to wear it.
