WHAT’S WESTERN WEARING: SAMANTHA LUONG
Freshman Samantha Luong, biochemistry major
Q: Where do you get your style inspiration?
A: Usually I see most of the things I want to wear online and on social media to see what is trendy. I also try to go with what is comfortable. It’s really sunny today so I decided to wear a skirt.
Q: How has your style changed over time?
A: Well over time I’ve just gotten poorer so I’ve had to go to thrift shops. Now that I’ve gotten a debit card, I usually shop online so there’s more of a variety [to choose from].
Q: What motivates you to put time into your look?
A: I usually only dress up when it’s sunny outside because I have a lot of spring clothes and not so many winter clothes. On normal days I’ll wear sweats if it’s not too hot but if it’s hot outside, I like to wear skirts because I hate wearing pants. I also like different colored shorts with different colored T-shirts. It’s just fun for me.
Q: Where do you usually shop?
A: My favorite place to shop is Goodwill because you never know what you’re going to find there. It’s like a treasure hunt. I also like to shop at cheaper places like H&M and Forever 21 like everyone else.
