Fashion ROX(I) - One Stylish Lady!

Roxanne Paul is one very stylish St.Lucian enjoying life in the DMV (DC, Maryland & Virginia) and lives by the quote, "A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous" by Coco Chanel.
This college student attends University of Maryland University College (UMUC) studying Marketing, with a Business Minor. Roxanne plans to Graduate May 2013 with the intention to work in the fashion industry in some capacity, either buying, merchandising, fashion marketing or something of the like. While in college, she also works full-time as a Personal Assistant to an Attorney and is a Merchandiser for Lou Lou Boutiques, but had to cut back to focus on her last two semesters of school.

If the aforementioned does not impress you, if her smile has not already brightened your day, read about her style and check out her pictures. You're going to LOVE HER ... I do!

My Style: I am, in every sense of the word a "Girly Girl"... or so I've been told :) 

I absolutely LOVE dressing UP, no matter the occasion.. I love to mix brands, price points and aesthetics. I don't believe that style or ones fashion sense has to be derived from expensive "LABELS".

I shop at a variety of stores: Bloomingdales, BCBG, Nordstrom, Forever21, ASOS, Marhshalls & TJmaxx, Ralph Luaren, Zara, H&M, SassaNova, Urban Chic, American Apparel, Urban Outfitters, Anne Taylor, J Crew, Lou Lou Boutiques for accessories: I was an assistant merchandiser for them.

I would say I have a classic sense of style. Think J Crew with an edge. I tend to gravitate towards dresses; I am a big fan of tailoring! It is sometimes hard for me to find things that fit PERFECTLY, so I get much of my clothing, especially dresses and skirts tailored~ a la' Michelle Obama.

I do however, like to have fun with fashion, and enjoy rocking Rihanna inspired ensembles. I love mixing textures and layering garments, I think it's all about wearing what works for me, and what fits my mood.

I enjoy accessorizing. In my view, accessories make an outfit. I can wear the same outfit five times, but change up the entire look by adding a scarf, different purse and shoes and rings and things :)

I love fashion ~ I plan outfits ~ I'm a girl!! But I try not to take it too seriously, after all, the overall goal is to look and feel effortless :)


I wear make-up every day, but I try to keep it light and natural. No one ever looks beautiful with the "caked on look" LOL. I like a mix of brands. I love MAC, but I also use CoverGirl, Nars and Urban Decay. I love bronzer, and frankly use it all year round! I typically wear a nude lip during the day, MAC: Mad Cap or SPITE. But sometimes I feel spicy and wear RubyWoo or other shades of Red and Pink. I just like having fun with make-up, it makes me feel glamorous everyday! :)
For a student on a budget who likes to shop, I say don't be scared to shop the sale racks, also try to frequent stores like Marshalls and TJ Maxx during the week {on weekends, the selections are not as vast}. You can get great deals on designer items at these two. Also, shop at trendy stores like F21 and H&M, where you can get a quick fix for the designer look at a lower price point; especially with designers doing collaborations with Target, H&M etc.
