2. How much did you get your outfit for and where?

“This jacket I’ve had since I was eight. Jeans were $25 at Sears…Pretty much everything I’m wearing is from Sears. And my murse, I’ve had it since 5. It was my mom’s; I kidnapped it from her. We’ve had so many memories together.”

3. What does fashion mean to you?

“Fashion is a way of liberating your brain. You hear of artists visualizing their art, but with fashion it’s a futuristic form of art. Fashion designers visualize the form or look and make it so a person can wear their art.”

4. Do you have any fashion inspirations?

“Yes, I do. First, it’s a mixture of rock and roll with preppy kid. Lady Gaga, Cyndi  Lauper, and Muggler also inspire me. I love really eccentric people.”

5. How does this outfit make you feel?

“This outfit brings back memories, is both comfortable, and on the go. I feel comfortable in my identity as a teenager as well.”
