Hey there! I'm Rome! :)
As a college student majoring in retail merchandising at the University of Texas at Austin, I was super excited when I got the news that I was going to be able to work back stage in NYFW for a few shows!!! With my lifelong interest in fashion, this was a dream come true! On top of that, I was able to stay stylish throughout NYFW with my Mingle Mingle Mini in Multi Python.
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I'm sophomore at The University of Texas, getting a degree in Retail Merchandising. I have always been in love with the whole fashion industry- it fascinates me! I enjoy using my creative side to show my personality by putting outfits together and styling friends' outfits. One of my favorite parts of the fashion industry is photography. I LOVE street style photography and how it captures a glimpse of people’s live through their style.
Who is your fashion inspiration?
My fashion inspiration is Sarah Jessica Parker. Since I was a little girl I've been fascinated with her- especially her role in Sex in the City. Not only does she have great style on the big screen but also in real life! She's classy but also not afraid to be bold!
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you #DareToEscape?
I would choose to escape to Bora Bora, Fiji to catch the sunny rays and relax in the blue water. I would definitely be doing some snorkeling and whale watching!
How do you #DaretoBeFabulous?
I always add a lot of jewelry to my outfit. I usually wear at least one necklace, ring and a lot of bracelets. I like wearing colorful bracelets to add a pop of color to my neutral outfits. I also love going bold with dark lipsticks when I go out!
What's your favorite thing to do in Austin?
I love going to the lake and renting a paddle boat with my friends. I also love hiking around town lake on the weekend. I also love going to my favorite restaurant, Lucky Robot, which has amazing sushi! It's right on South Congress, which has a lot of other shops and things to see, so we can hang out awhile after getting dinner.
Describe your style in 3 words.
Chic, classy and simple
Which Kelly Wynne handbag style is your favorite?
The Mingle Mingle Mini is my favorite style! I love how it goes perfectly with my petite size and how it's perfect for everyday use! I also love that it has a slip pocket on the back and a zipper pocket inside. It helped me keep everything organized and easy to grab while I was working back stage in NYFW!
If you were stuck on an deserted island, what five items would you put in your Kelly Wynne bag?
My favorite book, Tales from the Back Row: An Outsider's View from Inside the Fashion Industry by Amy Odell, a journal to write about my adventures, Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm, Toms Sunglasses, and yoga mat
What is your favorite thing about being a Wynnetern?
Besides being able to be a part of the wonderful Kelly Wynne team, I get to do what I love at work everyday, which is taking and editing pictures of beautiful handbags!
What’s something you would never be caught wearing?
I never would be caught be wearing UGGS!
