How would you define your style?
I guess I would describe my style as comfy or quirky.
What inspires your style?
I do a lot of art, and I feel like that affects my style. Mostly I wear color schemes I like using in art, or wear things with a design or texture similar to things I like seeing in other people’s pieces.
How has your change in location from Texas to Boston affected your fashion choices? Have you noticed any differences in the way people dress at home as opposed to here?
The climate has definitely been the biggest jump from Texas to Boston in that I get to wear clothes that are really seasonal now. The first big difference I noticed was how people in Boston love to layer, and I was really excited to get to do more of that than I can in Texas heat.
Where are your favorite places to shop?
It will sound like I’m trying way too hard, but I really do like shopping at thrift stores because of the variety and affordability. I also like chains like Forever 21 also, though.
