Who: Nashalia Ferrara, Senior, Communications Major
AS: Nashalia, the first time we met in Zurawick’s COM 242 class you were wearing these really cool booties that had zippers on the edges. Do you still have these boots and where did you get them?
Nashalia Ferrara: Haha, thanks! They are Lucky Brand booties. I took them abroad with me and the cobblestone streets of Europe completely ruined them so I don’t wear them much anymore.
AS: What is your favorite trend on Goucher’s campus?
NF: I love and wish I could pull off boyfriend jeans.
AS: What Goucher fad really makes you cringe?
NF: Don’t kill me; I hate Birkenstocks.
AS: How would you describe your style?
NF: It’s very classic, a little sporty, and maybe a little boring? I love black, clean lines, and capped sleeves.
AS: What will you do with yourself if you have to start wearing pantsuits to your new job post-graduation?
NF: Cry. This girl does not look good in a blazer.
AS: Has your style changed at all during your four years at Goucher? If so, how?
NF: When I arrived at Goucher, I was fresh out of prep school, wearing riding boots and obsessed with Tory Burch. By sophomore year, I stopped dressing like a suburban housewife and started leaning towards a street style look.
AS: Where did you go abroad and how did that impact your fashion sense?
NF: I went to Copenhagen, DK where there is no shame in wearing all black. The Danes taught me that head-to-toe black is very chic and not just for mourning. It was almost always below freezing there, so most of my thick, layering scarves are from Denmark or Sweden.
AS: What’s your favorite go-to piece in your closet?
NF: I love my Stan Smith Adidas! And yes, I know that Stan Smith is an actual person.
AS: Who is your Goucher style icon?
NF: Molly Kincaid McFall.
