Style Advisor: Stefanie Cowan

avatar School: Roger Williams University Over the top but under five feet, what I may lack in height (4’10”), I more than make up for with my huge personality and loud voice. I have a passion for fashion and interior design. My personal style has greatly influenced my interior design style. Dressing a room is very similar to dressing yourself in the morning. I lean towards classic looks with pops of color and, of course, shimmer and glitter. Glamour can be achieved on any budget with a little creativity and bargain hunting. My friends would describe me as a glitzy but not ditzy down to earth diva. I attend the beautiful ocean-front school, Roger Williams University. I am majoring in both Management and Marketing. Outside of class, I am a part of the business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi. I am currently living in a hotel that my school owns. This living arrangement has the perks of full beds, maid service and most importantly, a private bathroom. My roommate and I are constantly finding new ways to make our room even more beautiful. I am so excited to be a style advisor, and I hope to provide advice and inspiration to transform boring dorm rooms into a fabulous place to call home.
