Q: What do you love about fashion? Not love?
A: I love how someone can take one piece and make it something awesome, but someone else can use the same piece and do something completely different with it! Fashion is versatile and specific to one person, which is definitely something I love. I hate how expensive everything is getting now and hopefully the prices will go down back to reasonable!
Q: Your favorite designers & brands?
A: Topshop, Alexander McQueen, Tadashi Shoji, Acne Studios, Missguided, Christopher Bailey, Burberry, Valentino, Victoria Beckham, Alice + Olivia, DKNY, Prada
Q: Do you follow fashion trends? Which ones?
A: I try to follow trends, but mostly I just wear what I want! I like my style and it happens to just coincide with trends as it evolves. I will never ever get into the fluffy bag/shoe trend, I hate it. But I love sportswear and monochrome so those are my go to on any given day!
Q: Do you have any fashion rules when putting an outfit together?
A: My rule is to look in the mirror and go with my first instinct. If my instinct is that I look good, I'm gonna keep walking right out the door. If I hesitate, I change until I love what I'm wearing.
Q: Which would you be best at? Worst at? (Stylist, Designer, Photographer, Buyer)
