Q: Where do you get your style inspiration?

A: “As of late, pretty much just any article of Kanye really. I know that sounds super lame. I really like his color coordination and the patterns he chooses. He uses a lot of black and earth tones, which is what I think I look best in.”

Q: How has your style changed over time?

A: “I definitely went from being super try-hard hipster look to more joggers now. I wear athletic shoes now. I used to hate athletic shoes, and now they are super comfortable. More street, I guess, not try-hard hipster from high school.”

Q: What motivates you to put time into your look?

A: “Well, if I’m going to be outside and people are going to see me, I don’t want to be wearing sweatpants or looking [bad] because I don’t try that hard in many other aspects of my life. If I’m looking good, I’m feeling pretty good.”

Q: What stores do you normally shop at?

A: “H&M and Pacsun; those are for pants and shirts. I really like Urban Outfitters. Macy’s.”

A: “I wear a lot more colors and a lot more patterns. I guess I don’t think about it as much. I’m more daring.”

Q: Where do you get your style inspiration?

A: “Nowhere in particular. Maybe it’s innate.”

Q: How has your style changed over time?

A: “It hasn’t really. I mean it changes with trends just because that is the way fashion is, and there are some articles of clothing that I wouldn’t have been able to find at some other time.”

Q: What motivates you so put time into your look?

A: “I don’t. Sometimes I do, but most of the time I don’t.”

Q: What stores do you normally shop at?

A: “I like to shop at Goodwill. I don’t really like going to the mall. I know that a lot of fashion is made by pretty much slaves, so I try not to shop at stores like Forever 21 and pretty much all the stores at the mall. Sometimes I do, and I hate myself for it.”

Q: Where do you get your style inspiration?

A: “I mostly just shop at Value Village, so there’s not really a person who inspires me. I sort of just pick random things and mush them all together.”

Q: How has your style changed over time?

A: “I used to wear Lululemons, Vans and sweatshirts on a daily basis, and then I realized that is not a good representation of who I am. I sort of stopped caring. I bought this sweater for my Halloween costume, but then I was like ‘Wait, this is a super rad turtleneck.’ Less caring equals different style, I think.”

Q: What motivates you to put time into your look?

A: “I don’t really super do that. Lately, I have been wearing fall colors. It’s nice to just walk through the Arboretum and feel kind of a part of it, in a weird way. Seasons are a big influence on that.”

Q: What stores do you normally shop at?

A: “Value Village and Target. I love Target.”

Outfit:

Skirt: Friend’s

Sweater: Value Village, $3

Shoes: Doc Martins, $100
