From San Antonio, Texas
Vince black top from Nordstrom (favoite store)
Beloved briefcase (she doesn’t believe in backpacks)
AF: I love your alligator belt!
SB: Oh, thank you. My dad is an alligator hunter, and he gets the skin made into different products for my sisters, my mom and me. Look at this. [Sara puts her alligator skin purse on her lap and whips out a picture of the alligator that was used to make the purse!]
AF: Oh, my goodness! That is unbelievable! Does he do this for a living?
SB: No, it’s his hobby. He’s actually a doctor.
AF: Besides alligators, what influences your style?
SB: This is a little weird, but I love the costumes from the characters in Wes Anderson films. The clothes are classy with a hint of strangeness. I usually like to wear trousers with flowy shirts – anything that looks handsome and put together.
AF: Do you have a fear of repeating your clothes?
SB: Never. I have so many clothes.
AF: Do you shop at thrift stores?
SB: No, the first time I went to a thrift store was with UD people freshman year. One time I went to Buffalo Exchange with a huge box of clothes, and they didn’t want any of it because they said it looked too “old lady.”
AF: What do you not like to wear?
SB: I don’t wear jewelry or jeans. Except I wore jeans at Groundhog.
AF: Fun fact?
SB: When I was younger, I wore really big bows in my hair because my last name was Bowes.
