You’ve probably seen Abby around campus, on social media, or out and about, always wearing the best and most put together outfits of course. Abby is a Sophomore at SMU majoring in Journalism & Fashion Media with an Advertising minor. She’s an east coast girl at heart who has the best taste in fashion and is always rocking the coolest pieces. Let’s get to know a little bit more about Abby…
Val: Who is your style inspiration?
Abby: I have so many style inspirations, but if I had to pick a few they would be Camila Coelho, Olivia Culpo, and Sophie Suchan. They all have such unique styles and are not afraid to veer out of their comfort zones.
Val: Where are your go-to places to shop for clothes?
Abby: Like a lot of people, my go-to website to shop on is Revolve. I love the ranges of styles, colors, patterns, and prices they offer. Whenever I need something specific, I know I can find it on Revolve. I also love exploring local boutiques and supporting small businesses when I travel to new places, so specific pieces of clothing always remind me of that place.
Val: How would you describe your style in three words?
Abby: Feminine, modern, and classy
Val: How do Dallas and Annapolis styles differ?
Abby: Dallas is a cosmopolitan city with a high end style with a southern feel, whereas Annapolis is very preppy and nautical as it’s a boat friendly, coastal community.
Val: When did you start getting into fashion?
Abby: I’ve loved fashion ever since I can remember. I’ve gone to private school my whole life with a uniform, so any chance I got to wear something else, I’d put so much effort into how I styled myself and use fashion as a form of self expression.
Val: Any advice for freshman?
Abby: For going to class, my advice for freshman is to make sure you’re always comfortable, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be stylish at the same time. Also, make sure you have cute black booties that are comfortable and many different types of jeans you can dress up or down depending on where you’re going that night.
