1. What does style mean to you? 
Style is being able to create looks that work for your body type and shows your personality off! People with style do not necessarily follow trends, they just dress how they want!
2. When did you start to develop your personal style?
Within the past year actually. I have never had a lot of money to spend on clothes, but when I did I would usually head to Forever21. But it because to expensive for me, sad I know. But I heard of thrift stores and decided to try it out and that exposed me to all the various amounts of interesting clothing out there. And that inspired me to create different outfits.
3. Favorite Stores?
Value Village and Forever21
4. Favorite piece(s) in your closet?
This is such a hard question cause I love ALL my clothes. But  would have to say my denim shirt. I have like 3 of them because I wear them so much. But to me denim is so easily to pair with other things, so I have to have it in my closet!
5. A must have item. What are you currently looking for?
Ever girl needs a good pair of skinny jeans! They transition so easily through the seasons that when you buy a good pair they will be worth it! I am currently looking for a khaki or polka dot a-line skirt. Because I do not like wearing fitted skirts to school so I need other options.
6. Do you consider yourself trendy?
I actually do not. I consider my style very simple and appropriate for by lifestyle. I do not look for trends or whats hot. I just go buy what I can afford and looks good on me.
7. What do you think people are able to take away from your style?
I want everyone to be able to see that you can shop on a budget and  go to thrift stores and still look well put together! I recently made a YouTube video for a non-profit organization called The Ruby Project where I went shopping with only $40 and bought pieces to mix into my wardrobe and I was able to create 8 looks! Check it out if you like:
I just want everyone to see showing off your personality through your wardrobe can be easy and affordable.
8.Style Icons/ Inspirations?
There are two blogs that I look at daily! One of them is by a girl named Shirley and her blog is Her style is so clean and fresh I just love it. And the other girl's name is Raven and her blog I like her style because she also goes thrifting and also does a lot of DIY things which I always find fun!
9. Any final words to readers about fashion or style in general?
Just have fun with your style and always be yourself. Wear clothes that show who you are, because when you try to hard or wear things just to be trendy or fashionable it shows cause the clothes usually end up wearing you instead of the other way around.
