Style Appreciation: Jelinda Smith
Jelinda goes to school at Parkland College in Champaign, IL and majors in theatre arts. She graduates in December and plans to move to New York to get a degree in fashion design. Her goal is to be a working actress with killer style and drive!
" My entire life, I have been a fashion lover. Seriously, my mom almost gave birth to me at a mall (ironic right)! I decided to be an inspiration to people in small cities. As long as you're passionate, it's not about where you are from...it's about where you are going. My dream is to be my own version of Sarah Jessica Parker. She's a woman with style (started her own clothing line a few years ago), but is also an actress, which is one of my passions! I am inspired by men's wear, monochrome pieces, and patterns; the three things I love the most! I'm secretly a Ciara and Kim Kardashian Instagram lover. They are always on point.
I would describe my style as a colorful risk. Color brings me to life! I love to mix patterns that you would normally never put together! "
