Sidewalk Catwalk: Kelly Karagias

 

Many refer to her as the “girl with the crazy shoes” or “hipster with the platforms,” but many don’t know Kelly Karagias (pronounced like courageous) by name. As her roommate, I wanted to get a closer look into her wardrobe and find out where this husky finds her style inspiration.

“I have about thirty pairs of shoes that I brought to school, but I have a lot more back home. My favorite brand of shoes is Jeffrey Campbell. His shoes are crazy yet very functional; I love that! Even if I’m wearing four inch leather platforms, I am comfortable and able to do anything,” said Karagias. Kelly gets her fashion inspiration from publications such as Nylon Magazine and from local street style throughout Boston and New York City. This fashionista is hard to miss around campus. On a normal day, she sports Jeffrey Campbell platforms (or her favorite black high tops), skinny high-rise jeans, a muscle tank, and a flannel. This courageous husky is anything but conventional and a showstopper at all points of the day.
