Hello my Fashionistas!
To start my name is Andrea Barberia and I am a Business major at St Johns University in NYC. My passions include traveling the globe (which you will see), fantastic food, school, fashion and my family. My interest in fashion started when I was a little, with the big inspiration of my sister. Although we have very different styles, we've always seemed to share the love for shopping and being able to express ourselves through what we wear. To pinpoint my style to one single thing would be impossible since it changes every day, which is what I love most about it. You could see me one day in a long black T paired with black ripped jeans and black booties, and the next in colorful tops and heels. Nevertheless, I love to keep it chic interesting and modern.
I aspire to work somewhere in the business fashion industry, and living in NYC has always been one of my dreams. It's opened so many amazing opportunities for me, like attending LIM to shadowing the amazing designer Catherine Malandrino, to even attending Fashion week shows in NYC and Paris!
Recently someone asked me what fashion meant to me, my answer:
"I've always been captivated by fashion and what it has to offer ever since I was a little girl. Since starting my fashion blog, Glamourcocktail.com, its allowed me to fully emerge myself, take my love for fashion to the next level and show the world all about my style and travels. For me, fashion is being able to express who I am as a person, where I come from and how I want the world to perceive me without having to say anything at all. I love being able to read people's style and outfits and already know a little bit about them before even meeting them. It’s about expression, imagination and having enough courage to wear something because it makes you feel good, and I think that’s really important. I think it’s amazing how an outfit can give you all the confidence in the world, and I think it's at those moments when I fall in love with fashion all over again."
The purpose of my blog is to be able to share my love for fashion with the world, and I hope you get to know me a little better through my readings and posts!
