I wanted to do the photo shoot too haha











How do you define your style? (chic,retro,edgy,etc)
All of the above. haha, it really depends on my mood but I always keep my style edgy & eclectic. I love accessorizing with crazy jewelery- especially studs.

When did your intrest in fashion begin? who/what is your inspiration to be fashionable?
My interest in fashion began when I started high school. Believe it or not, i was a fashion retard before hahaha. I used to be a tom boy and always wanted to be "cool" like my older brother (can't believe im admitting this) so i would always wear baggy jeans and I would borrow his tshirts. When i started high school i wanted to change up my look and start acting like a girl, so the first person who I looked to for advice was my mom. She had this graceful elegance, still today I would kill for that. My mother will always be my fashion guru :)

Favorite designers? favorite stores to shop at? where are the best deals at?
Tough decision... I have a number of favorite designers, to name some off the top of my head would be Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen (RIP), Balenciaga, Balmain, Chanel, Dsquared, Haider Ackermann, Rodarte, & Lanvin. The list could go on. Fav stores? well, the affordable ones would be Forever 21, Zara, Urban Outfitters, American Apparel, H&M, & Topshop. Best deals? i always have the worst luck with sales but so far I've been doing pretty well at Zara. Urban has good sales but by the time i get to the sale section all the good stuff is gone :/

Top 5 fashion icons?
The olsen twins
Sarah Jessica Parker
Rihanna
Alexa Chung
Victoria Beckham

Any style tips that you could give someone the same body type as you?
Wear whatever you're comfortable in. For some reason i feel like people think being petite is hard to dress, but to be honest i think its the perfect size! we can pretty much pull off anything, as long as you have the confidence to back it up.. and of course 4 inch heels ;) don't ever second guess yourself. don't think "can i really pull this off?" because if you do, you'll never be able to step out of your comfort zone.

just for fun... if you had your own clothing line, what would you name it?
hmmmm.... still in the process ;)
