Read Surveys (By Author)
1. When do you feel at your most attractive?
When I have been being healthy mentally and physically.
3. What are some things you admire about how other women present themselves?
When they walk with a little sass and a small smile. They do not seem to be trying so hard and beauty comes naturally to them.
4. Was there a moment in your life when something “clicked” for you about fashion or dressing or make-up or hair? What? Why did it happen then, do you think?
My sister was always good with fashion and the way she styled her clothes was more girly and I liked how certain things were styled. I kind of used that with my own style because I am not as girly. I was in middle school when I started to explore with my clothing.
5. What are some shopping rules you wouldn’t necessarily recommend to others but which you follow?
If you haven't spent money in a while you can buy that overpriced item, this time.
7. What is the most transformative conversation you have ever had on the subject of fashion or style?
The way fast fashion is made, has changed the way I look at my clothes and how much I buy.
9. Are there any clothing (or related) items that you have in multiple? Why do you think you keep buying this thing?
I have a lot of mom jeans in different colors. I like how comfortable they are and they make the outfit seem more retro, which is my current style.
10. Have you ever successfully given someone a present of jewelry or clothing that you continue to feel good about?
Yes I gifted them white sneakers.
11. Is there any fashion trend you’ve refused to participate in and why?
Chunky sneakers. They seem like clown shoes and I trip easily.
12. Can you say a bit about how your mother’s body and style has been passed down to you, or not?
My mom is thin and average height. She has a small waist, and legs thinner than mine. She showed me how to look stylish and not show too much skin.
13. Have you stolen, borrowed or adapted any dressing ideas or actual items from friends or family?
Yes, I went through my sister's closet so many times in high school and borrowed dresses, shirts, etc.
16. Please describe your body.
Short, wide hips, small upper body.
17. Please describe your mind.
Confused, happy, stressed, daydreaming, loving.
18. Please describe your emotions.
Happy and sad
19. What are you wearing on your body and face, and how is your hair done, right at this moment?
light wash mom jeans, green long sleeve, with Air Force 1. My hair is in a bun and I am wearing no makeup.
20. In what way is this stuff important, if at all?
I like to feel comfortable and stylish. I've been told green is nice color on me.
21. With whom do you talk about clothes?
My sister and best friend.
29. Did your parents teach you things about clothing, care for your clothing, dressing or style? What lessons do you remember? Or did you just pick things up?
My parents always told me to take care of my clothes and not be too rough with my clothes. When I wash I do not put clothes with a certain fabric in the dryer.
30. What sorts of things do you do, clothing or make-up or hair- wise, to feel sexy or alluring?
My hair is naturally curly so when my curls look nice and I wear a nice shirt or dress.
32. If dressing were the only thing you did, and you were considered an expert and asked to explain your style philosophy, what would you say?
Feel good in your clothes. Wear something that you want people to see you in and where you feel your most you. Wear your clothes with no shame and challenge yourself because small changes create a big impact sometimes.
34. What do you consider very ugly?
37. What is your process getting dressed in the morning? What are you considering?
I pick out my clothes at night and have options just in case I did not feel good or like my first option.
39. What, for you, is the difference between dressing and dressing up?
Dressing is just for any day where you can go anywhere wearing something "normal", but dressing up is when you put more effort in your outfit and it looks more dressy/fancy. Dressing up is more rare.
