A Farewell to FSU Fashion Girl

I cannot believe it has almost been three years since I started FSU Fashion Girl. Taking a look back on my life in 2009 to now, it is amazing what all you can accomplish. In the past three years, I interned for four completely different companies, moved to New York City for the summer, was mentioned in Lauren Berger’s book “All Work, No Pay”, and served as the Public Relations Director for CLUTCH Magazine. I cannot believe the change I have seen in myself throughout the past few years, both personally and professionally. When I started FSU Fashion Girl, I honestly had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I wanted to work in the fashion industry but I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do. I initially started this blog to see if I wanted to write for a fashion magazine in the future. Now, I can say confidently, that I want to pursue a career at a fashion-based public relations or social media company. I am blessed to have figured this out throughout my time in college but even more blessed to be given such amazing opportunities. The next few months are going to be very challenging but all I can do is stay positive, hope for the best and know that I will end up exactly where I am meant to be.

As I enter my final month in Tallahassee, I would like to take this moment to thank each and every one of you for supporting FSU Fashion Girl throughout the years. It is because of all your love and support that it was able to become such a success. With that said, I am starting a brand new website that will document my post-graduate adventures – NYC Fashion Girl. I officially launched the website yesterday & am excited to start a whole new journey.

Thank you again for your support! It means the world to me. :)

A Fashion Year in Review: 2010!

As the end of 2010 is upon us, I wanted to take this time to reflect on the past. As far as fashion, it is clear that this year three brands dominated my heart this year. These three brands include French Connection, Marc by Marc Jacobs & Wildfox Couture. Thinking deeper than that, I compiled a list of my favorite finds this year.

This list included a Theory blazer, Gucci sunglasses, French Connection dress, Michael Kors watch, Wildfox Couture sweatshirt, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, Juicy Couture riding boots & the Marc by Marc Jacobs perfect purse. Although some of these items made the list because they were a killer deal, they have all become staples in my wardrobe this year.

But of course, this is a time for not only reflecting on fashion, but also on myself personally. 2010 was a major year in my life & I am thankful for everything – the good times and bad.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

-Served as the secretary for FSU’s Collegiate Merchandising Association, ran for 2011 President & lost by one vote but no regrets – everything happens for a reason!
- Became the Public Relations Director for FSU’s CLUTCH Magazine. Instantly began working on finding a way to publish an online version of the magazine (for free, of course!) & starting a blog.
- Completed my first internship with Intern Queen Inc. and will continue on as a campus ambassador next semester
- Met Andrea through my summer internship with Intern Queen Inc. & we collaborated in the fall to create the first-ever #CampusFashion Twitter chat – HUGE success!
- Became a campus ambassador for Kembrel where I began increasing awareness of this awesome website on Florida State’s campus while also saving up money to intern in NYC this summer

After reflecting on all that I have accomplished in one year, I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life & what all year 2011 will bring.

Happy new year everyone & thanks for reading! xoxo

Updates: Spring Break 2010

Hi everyone!

As most of you probably know, today is the last day of classes before spring break. Finally midterms are over and we can all just take the week off and relax.

I don’t know where you all are going but I will be relaxing in the Bahamas where it will hopefully be MUCH warmer than it is here in Tallahassee.

I hope everyone has a fun & safe spring break! Enjoy it while it lasts!

Update: Moving Day is Approaching!

movingboxHey everyone!

I will be moving into my apartment this weekend which means I will be very busy packing and trying to get everything together and set up. I probably won’t have much time to work on a new post but there should definitely be a new post up no later than next week! I hope everyone has a great week!

Welcome to FSU Fashion Girl

Hello! Welcome to FSU Fashion Girl, a blog run by a fashion merchandising student at Florida State University.

On this site, I will blog about the latest trends, hottest styles, best deals, newest products and more! I also want to use this blog in order to promote FSU’s wonderful fashion program as well as local fashion boutiques and fashion shows.

Although my primary audience will be FSU students as well as other college students, I want to make this a fresh fashion blog that all can enjoy. I would love to hear any and all of your suggestions. Feel free to email me at FSUfashiongirl@gmail.com or simply follow me on twitter @FSUfashiongirl. I look forward to seeing where this fashion blog goes and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
