TB: What inspires you and your fashion sense?
A: A lot of my inspiration comes from what I see other teens, like me, wearing. I use Tik Tok a lot, so I see a lot of cool outfits on other people that I think look really good. I also get inspiration from fashion youtubers, like bestdressed and nava rose.
TB: How would you describe your style?
A: Overall I'd say it's alternative, but it's really hard to label because I like wearing a lot of different styles. I usually pick what I wear based on how I feel! Typically I aim for tight tops and loose pants.
TB: Where are your favorite places to shop?
A: I've been thrifting for years, so the majority of my clothes are from Goodwill.
TB: How long have you been altering your own clothing?
A: [Ever] since quarantine started, I've had a lot more time to start altering my own clothes. I have plenty of old shirts and bottoms that I don't like anymore, so it's fun to spend a whole day sewing them into something that I'd actually wear.
