Wearing… A beanie from American Apparel, jeans from H&M, a top I bought online on Tobi.com, boots from Aldo, and a jacket that was a gift my grandparents bought for me in Italy.
My personal style is… I would say my style is currently a mix of girly with a bit of a grunge-y twist. I change my style all the time, though.
First memorable fashion purchase… I found an adorable pair of vintage Tods at a thrift store this summer for beyond cheap. It took me a few moments to grasp how insanely lucky this steal was.
3 items in your makeup bag… My MAC lipstick in Pink Plaid is always on me, as is my eyelash curler and Lancôme Hypnose mascara.
One thing every girl should have… A go-to hat or beanie for bad hair days that cannot be fixed otherwise.
Favourite style icons… I think I can safely say I really don’t have a famous style icon. I find myself extremely inspired by people I see on the streets and concerts I go to.
Most versatile item in your closet… I would say this jacket that I’m wearing in the photo. I love that I can wear it for more classy events, but also it’s perfect to just throw on with a pair of jeans.
The most random thing in your bag right now… A USB drive. I think I was transferring photos to a friend.
How do you take your tea…I take my tea as is and I’m definitely more of a tea drinker because there are endless flavours.
Your ideal Friday night…Grabbing a bite to eat and maybe a few drinks with some friends, and then going to a fun concert afterwards.
5 things you can’t live without… My phone, a watch, my iPod, my extensive tea collection, and gum. I obsessively chew gum.
