Lauren is a Fashion Merchandising graduate of Florida State University and forever a Seminoles fan! She is a fashion blogger for her site, La Petite Fashionista. She started La Petite Fashionista in March 2007 as a site to make fashion accessible for young people. She now is fulfilling her dream as a merchandiser for a major retailer.
On her site she muses about her inspirations, forecasts future trends, features up and coming labels, and writes about her experiences as a fashion student trying to break into the industry. She loves that blogging has given so many unique individuals a platform to voice their fashion views.
She realized she wanted to pursue a fashion career after winning a charity fashion show at her high school from ELLEGirl Magazine in an essay contest. She loved every second of the experience; from the model fittings, to the styling, to the production it was easy to realize her fashion studded dreams.
Since that momentous event, she has taken advantage of every opportunity to learn as much as she can about the fashion industry; from interning at a modeling agency to her current internship with a major retailer. She credits her blog for giving her the opportunity to meet people just as crazy about fashion as she is & helping her chase her dreams. She also just started a digital magazine, La Petite Fashionista Mag where she tours real girls homes, offers up affordable fashion, entertaining ideas , and healthy recipes!
