Hello! My name is Courtney Mally and I am a staff writer for the Fashion Journalist Club. Currently I am a freshman at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication studying broadcast journalism. Fashion has always been a priority to me and played a big part in my life. I was almost late on my first day of kindergarten because I didn’t have the “right belt” for my outfit!

As I have grown up, my passion has only grown with me. Everyday my style personality changes a littlebit, and that is what I love most about fashion! You can be whomever you want, whenever you want. Part of the reason I am pursuing a career in journalism is, I want share my knowledge of beauty products and fashion trends to help people feel confident in their own personal style. So, I write my pieces for you guys, the readers. Please enjoy!


Hi The Chic Daily readers! I’m Savanah Yaghsezian and I’m a part of ASU’s Fashion Journalist Club because I hope to write for fashion magazines/websites and maybe even run my own fashion/lifestyle blog one day. I’m really inspired by celebrities like Blake Lively and Kiernan Shipka (I’ll be the first to admit a 15-year-old has better style than I do). However, I also enjoy looking at Bill Cunningham’s street style photographs in the New York Times. My personal style jumps around a lot, but currently much of my clothing is reminiscent of the 1990’s (I also hear 70’s style is coming back, so I might have to give that a shot). You’ll probably see me writing about fashion tips and my favorite trends.
