How would you describe your style? I think my personal style just kind of reflects myself. I'm free and love color. I’m not afraid to take chances! I don't think “style” is definable in one word. One day I can dress more casual, the next I’m preppy, and the next I could dress more classic, it all really depends on what my mood is by the time I get to my closet!

What would you consider your signature item? I always need a good pair of sunglasses, even when it’s shady out! Preferably my Gucci’s!

Who are you inspired by and why? Fashion stylists, designers and enthusiasts on social media inspire a lot of my looks. Instagram is one of my favorites because you can follow almost any brand and anyone who inspires you. They show me what colors I can mix and match, how to layer looks and how to accessorize.

Where do you shop? I shop at different places for different things. For clothes GUESS, H&M, American Apparel, and Cotton On, Polo Ralph Lauren, Express, and Banana Republic. For accessories, I shop at Gucci, Michael Kors, Armani Exchange, and Etsy. I buy my shoes form Steve Madden, Aldo, Cole Haan, and Nike.

How would you describe your style? Dressy hipster hobo. I like to either wear a lot of accessories and get really dressed up, or I like wearing oversized flannels or sweaters.

What would you consider your signature item? Anything gold-studded.

Who are you inspired by and why? I love Lana Del Ray. Her style is so unique and wild.

Where do you shop? I like to shop at Urban Outfitters, Necessary Clothing, Tobi, and Brandy Melville.
