TT: How would you describe your style?

CH: 85 percent of the time I will choose comfortable over cute. I like what is practical, and I’d rather get more sleep than get dressed up.

TT: Who is your favorite designer?

CH: UD … ‘cause that supplies my clothing. If I wore all the UD things I own, I would have three weeks of clothing.

TT: Where is your favorite place to shop?

CH: Walmart, because it is affordable for a college budget.

TT: Why do you dress the way you do?

CH: If you dress casual a lot, the days you dress nice, people will notice.

TT: What are some trends that you hate?

CH: I hate when people change outfits three times a day. Pick one outfit and be consistent.

TT: What are some trends that you like?

CH: Hoodies, bandanas … If it is comfortable, I will wear it.

TT: What item should every girl have in her closet?

CH: A black dress, because you can go from an everyday look to classy.

TT: Do you have any fashion advice for the readers?

CH: Dress practically and know that you don’t have to be dressed up every day for people to like you. Dressing up is like makeup; it should accentuate your personality.

TT: What is something that you regret wearing?

CH: High heels – I wore them to my brother’s wedding. I could not dougie, and I had to take my shoes off when I danced.
