“I’m extremely passionate about fashion. I love reading about designers and the fashion industry, and I even co-run a fashion blog with a friend. I always try to keep myself updated on runway trends, and I’m willing to try any of them as long as I can incorporate them into my wardrobe in a relatively inexpensive way. Right now I’m super inspired by early 1970s and 1990s style as well as Native American detailing. I like to have fun with the trends that I try. I don’t think fashion should be such a serious, stressful thing in people’s lives. Fashion gives me a great opportunity to be creative every day. I think it’s thrilling to pick out my clothes in the morning. It’s fun trying to find an innovative way to combine pieces that wouldn’t necessarily be paired together in a store display.”
