Multi-string gold necklace: A gift from her mother
Dark yellow and green collared button-down: another item from her favorite thrift store
Black skinny pants: from the store Forever 21
Brown loafers: from her favorite thrift store
AF: What’s your style like?
SS: I don’t care about brands or labels – I just buy what I like. I try not to over-think what I wear, because I like to appear a little nonchalant.
AF: What are your favorite items?
SS: I get pretty sentimental about clothing. If I had a terrible experience in a certain outfit, I tend to never wear it again. My brown loafers are one of my favorite pieces, though. I like that they look old and no one else I know has them.
AF: So you like one-of-a-kind items?
SS: Definitely! I hate it when I see someone else wearing the same thing as me.
AF: What are people’s comments about the things you wear?
SS: It’s funny because most people compliment me on things I got for five bucks at a thrift store. I get a lot of compliments on my bags too – and my grandmother makes them.
AF: What would you like to change about your wardrobe?
SS: I want more professional-looking clothing.
AF: What are you going to miss about UD fashion when you graduate?
SS: I’m going to miss UD’s special type … like the light jeans, sneakers and polo shirts, for example. It makes me happy that people are comfortable with what they wear. It’s a nice environment where everyone feels confident with themselves. I fit in here because I wear what makes me feel comfortable.
