Moody. Eclectic, probably because I dress according to my mood. If I see a certain look that I like, I'll try it out. If it doesn't work, I'll just move on to another one. But I don't blindly follow trends. If I know it won't flatter me, I won't force it.Know stylish girls on the web? Comment down below!
Shopper central. Like any other girl out there, I love H&M, Zara, Topshop, and Mango. For party dresses that I'm sure I won't see on another person, I go to The Ramp and Archaeology. Graxie always has girly yet edgy dresses that run in limited stocks. I also like shopping in Landmark and SM! You can really unearth things there, if you know where to look.
Fun designers. Marc Jacobs! It's such a typical answer, but his designs look like the kind of clothes you'd have fun wearing. I don't think you can go wrong with him. Oh, and Alexander Wang!
Must-have. Comfortable shoes! I have a habit of complaining about sore feet, so most of the time, I just avoid that by wearing shoes I can really walk around in.
Inspiration. I'm constantly inspired by normal girls. I love Chictopia because of all the stylish, resourceful girls there, and I also love Rumi of Fashion Toast and Karla of Karla's Closet. These girls prove that you don't need tons of money to put together great outfits.
Style icon. Mary Kate Olsen. She may have some questionable outfits, but when she gets it right, she really gets it right.
Style influences. Too many things! Movies, books, and magazines especially. It started with Candy, then I moved to Seventeen. Now I buy Preview, Elle, and Teen Vogue monthly. These magazines have really made me aware of fashion, and more or less molded my style into what it is now.
The color purple. It's a rainbow in there! However, when I do buy things, I tend to gravitate toward purple and black.
Never ever. Off the top of my head, clothes that reveal too much. I don't care if Anna Wintour says it's the must-have of the season. I'd rather not give a peepshow to those around me.
The mighty three. Black ballet flats, Chanel's 2.55 purse and well-fitting underwear!
Yesterday's tomorrow. Poodle skirts. I find them cute. I love the movie Grease because of the clothes!
