Experimental. My style is a mishmash of anything with prints, patterns, colors, and extreme girlyness. Some people may find my outfits a bit too cutesy, childish, or over the top, but I don't think I would want them to be any other way. I also find it amusing when my friends tell me about seeing clothes that are "very Allie" when they go out to shop.
Cheap shopper.
I am obsessed with thrift shops and department stores. I don't believe that having a budget necessarily means compromising being fashionable. As for specific stores, I usually go to The Ramp, Forever 21, Just G, and Gingersnaps. And any stores with petite sizes are always good!
Fashion designers love.
Definitely Vivienne Westwood and Betsey Johnson. I love how their clothes manage to be fun, quirky, and high-fashion, all at the same time.
Accessorize.
I can never leave home without at least a necklace around my neck, or a few rings on my fingers. I also have a love affair with legwear—tights, thigh highs, stockings, leg warmers—but I can't wear them as often, especially during the hot summer days.
Inspired. Everything I see in my day-to-day life are sources of inspiration. The Internet is also a particularly great contributor. I have a folder on my computer reserved specifically for photos that I can dig up for future use as outfit or DIY pegs.
