It’s long overdue.. but FINALLY, Madi Phillips has stepped up to the podium and shared her fashion secrets with us. IMO, Madi is the #1 fashionista on campus and she is currently slaying while she studies abroad in London. Oh yes. Tea time and red telephone booths are part of her daily life over in the UK.
Straight out of Los Angeles (Westlake to be exact), Madi is a junior at SMU and is studying to rule the world one day. She is currently taking a break from the Dallas life and spending her days window shopping in Oxford Street, shopping at the Borough Market and hitting the pubs in the afternoon.
Once you get to know Madi, you’ll quickly realize her personality brings enthusiasm into your life and she leads you down a path you’d never go down. She inspires me to be edgy and creative, so it’s no shock that it shows in her wardrobe.
So, we can already tell Madi knows what she’s doing not only with her style but also her photography. She now has over four thousand followers on Instagram, and is a proud ambassador for RewardStyle and LIKEetoKNOW.it.
Check Madi out on Instagram @madmillerr to see more of these pics and to see where she buys her clothes.
