Stephanie, a fashion design major at Columbia College Chicago, brought some serious style to the loop yesterday. Her cream front cowled dress (Arden B.) with plunging cowl back was definitely a showstopper. Combined semi-sheer tights (New York & Company) and adorable basket weave heels (Wet Seal) her look is not only classy but affordable as well. But Stephanie doesn't want you to forget the bag (Guess), "I have to have a large bag to carry all of my things in. It's just easier."
As a aspiring designer, Stephanie is obsessed with faux fur for fall. She loves faux fur stoles but also is excited for other wintery accessories like thick scarves, cute hats and clochés. Her fashion icon is Betsey Johnson because of her use of feminine and edgy design aesthetics. "Betsey is never boring," explained Stephanie. I couldn't agree more.
