From Anchorage, Alaska
Plays UD baseball
Gray, collared long-sleeve.
Calvin Klein shoulder bag
Dark-blue corduroy, cuffed because they are too long (and it looks better that way)
Penny loafers with matching dress socks.
AF: How has your wardrobe changed since freshman year?
VC: I have evolved from an earring-wearing, Abercrombie style to something more refined as I approach medical school. My sisters, who are now 19 and 17, started buying me clothes, and I gradually noticed my clothes looked a lot nicer.
AF: Do you wear a lot of name-brand clothing? How do you afford to look so nice?
VC: I am a bargain shopper because I am on a budget as a student. I am brand-conscious not because it is more expensive, but because I trust that these big brands are fashionable, and I won’t be misled when purchasing their clothes.
AF: What’s fashion like in your hometown?
VC: It seems like Alaska is about a step behind everybody else in fashion. People will wear muck boots anywhere. I guess fashion isn’t as much a priority because everyone tries to stay warm.
