The 2011 Pinkerton Academy graduate and soon-to-be junior at Emerson College is the young fashion maven behind Trends & Tolstoy (www.trendsandtolstoy.com), a blog geared toward style-conscious, college-aged women on the go.
"Originally, it was just me and my computer," she said with a laugh. "I wanted to keep up with my outfits and make sure I wasn't wearing yoga pants to class every day."
"I do get a lot of emails from college-aged folks who are trying to appear more professional, more polished," Colby said. "Most of us college students are so tempted to throw on a sweatshirt in the morning, but we're also trying to break that habit as we move towards our career goals."
