How do you describe your style?
Totally vintage baby! No, I'm just kidding about that. Well, first off, I really don't like wearing pants.  So I usually like to wear dresses with tights. I have a couple of dresses from the eighties; they were my mom's.

What's your favorite movie?
Probably Rushmore and Wet Hot American Summer. 

Who influences you? Zooey Deschanel. She does not meticulously follow fashion trends, she just dresses the way she likes.

Does music influence you?
Yeah, girl singers like Jenny Lewis of Rilo Kiley and Emily Haines of Metric. Listening to some female singers make me feel like wearing dresses without being too feminine. At home a lot of my friends are influenced by post-hardcore bands like Fugazi, that also influences me. I like to wear flannel and band t-shirts.

Where did you get your dress?
Forever 21. I like to shop at inexpensive places like H&M and thrift stores.

What about your jewelry?
I get my jewelry from places I've traveled like China and Greece. I also get it from flea markets or festivals, like the San Gennaro Festival in New York City.
