Q. How would you describe your style?

A. I think the best words to describe my style are intricate and flamboyant. I like my clothing to have cool designs and look very busy.

Q. Where do you go to buy your clothes and what brands do you like to buy?

A. One of my favorite stores to go to is Penguin because they give a lot of good deals and are pretty high quality clothes. Other than that, I simply like to go to Nordstroms because they have a wide variety of clothing that I can buy to fit my style. Sometimes that can be a little expensive so I like to go to places like the Urban Outfitters Outlet instead, which also offers a variety of brands. I don’t have a lot of other specific brands that I consistently buy from because I can usually find the types of clothes I’m looking for from several different retailers.

Q. Who or what inspires the way you dress?

A. My mom is actually a pretty big influence on what I buy. She generally has good taste. I don’t really look to any other specific people, I kind of just go off what I think looks good.

Q. What is your favorite piece of clothing?

A. A good pair of socks. I like wearing socks that are multicolored or have crazy designs because it’s something that people will notice, but isn’t so crazy that it seems like I’m shoving it in their face.

Q. If you could give any advice to others about what they should wear what would it be?

A.Just wear clothes you like and try not to worry about what to wear too much. Besides that I would definitely advise everyone to not wear Uggs, especially the ones made for men.
