Describe your style.
French Urban Barbie. I wear as much vintage Chanel as I do Nike.
Primary colors vs. pastels?
Can you recall the first outfit you put together?
I can't remember the first outfit I put together, but my first "fashion moments" were at the Fairfax flea market.
I went every Sunday as a little girl and remember my favorite booth was owned by this lady named Sharene who had frilly Quinceanera dresses lined up for me to try on. I bought a new dress every weekend for years- it really marked the beginning of my love for vintage.
Sloan from Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
Plum Rose lip liner from NARS.
