What is one word to describe your style?
What are your wardrobe staples?
Cardigans, layering tanks, cute hats, ray-bans glasses, scarfs, and yoga leggings, With having a business casual dress code at work, I found that cardigans and layering tanks have become a wardrobe staple because it’s easy to mix and match and be comfortable at during a long work day. I am also embracing the legging trend which has become a staple in my wardrobe on the weekends – it’s an effortless way to be trendy but comfortable. That goes the same for cute hats and scarf. It’s easy to make an outfit look great with just a basic hat or a stylish scarf.
What is one piece of fashion you could never pull off?
High Heels. I am naturally not a coordinated person so therefore I have always struggled in heels.
What is your favorite clothing season (fall, winter, spring, summer)?
My favorite clothing season is fall. I love the colors of fall. The best part of the fall clothing season is being able to pull the boots out of the closet.
What stores do you regularly shop in?
My favorite stores that I shop in include H&M, Express, Target and New York and Company.
What was the best deal you ever found?
I found a classic fitted black dress with lace cap sleeves at H&M. The $50 dress was marked down to $12 which I thought was an amazing deal. However, when I went to check out there was an additional sale on clearance items and the dress came to $5. This dress became my go-to black dress for weddings and events for only $5!
If you were given $1000 and could splurge on one item of clothing/shoes/purses/jewelry, what would you buy?
I would splurge on a Louis Vuitton Top Handle Handbag. Most women have shoes, I have handbags, just not a Louis Vuitton handbag yet. I have been obsessed with stopping at Ross Park Mall’s Louis Vuitton store to visit my dream bag but I haven’t been able afford it just yet.
