MB: How would you describe your style?
BA: Well, I really like retro styles. For me, it’s fun to dress up every day, rather than just throwing on a T-shirt and jeans. For formal dress, I really like Victorian-era clothing – like, for Christmas I asked for a frock coat.

MB: How do you shop on a college student’s budget?
BA: I have a Target REDcard so I get 5 percent back on every purchase. And I love thrift stores. They are amazing, especially Goodwill. I also shop online a lot, especially on where there is a lot of really affordable clothing.

MB: What should guys avoid wearing, in your opinion?
BA: Black shoes with brown belts, and vice versa. Also, no flip-flops with socks!

MB: Do you have an outfit you regret ever having worn?
BA: Yes, every outfit I wore in middle school.

MB: Who are your fashion inspirations?
BA: Michael Bublé and Neal Caffrey from White Collar.

MB: What do girls wear that you don’t like?
BA: I’m not a fan of short shorts.
