Q: Where do you get your style inspiration?

 

A: Mainly from older pictures, like from the 60s and 70s. But most of it is just made up as I go.

 

Q: How has your style changed over time?

 

A: In junior high I would wear crazier outfits, like Hawaiian shirts and I started rolling up my pants—cuffed I think it’s called. That was weird back then, I would kind of get stuff for that, but I didn’t really care. It has gotten more casual and more clean-cut as I have gotten older.

 

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

 

A: Life is too short to dress boring. That is how I see it. I think you should care about what you wear because it is what you present to everyone you see. I think it is important to look good.

 

Q: Where do you usually shop?

 

A: If I get something new, then [I will shop at] H&M or J. Crew. But mainly thrift stores, like Goodwill, or secondhand stores like Buffalo Exchange and Urban Exchange back where I am from in Tacoma. It is like the same thing, it is just vintage clothes.
