Describe your look.
Faux fur scarf: Banana Republic
T-shirt: a band’s promo merchandise
Bag: Michael by Michael Kors
Jacket: Urban Outfitters
How would you describe your style?
It’s a mix of military, utilitarian chic, with girly touches. I like comfy laid back with a structured piece.
Where are your favorite places to shop?
I like Zara a lot because of the way the clothes fit, they are very structured. I like Urban Outfitters because they have a lot of different edgy pieces you can throw in. I also like Rag & Bone.
Are you about the name brands or do you like more hole-in-the-wall shops?
A little bit of both. I’m not a big name brand person, more about what works for you and fits into your style.
What’s the one piece in your wardrobe you can’t live without?
My leather jacket. It’s from H&M and I got it a long time ago. It’s really kind of run down, but it is the one piece I can dress up, dress down, do anything with. [It] always adds that look thats “me” into an outfit.
What’s the one piece in your wardrobe that is your fashion regret?
Not recent, but when I was in high school I bought a red leather jacket, but it wasn’t cut in a motorcycle style, it was a blazer. It did not fit well, and I’m all about the fit, but I wore it like I was the hottest thing on the streets!
