Three reasons that you’re awesome:

1. I’ve videotaped myself dancing and posted the videos online. You know, in case you need a good laugh.
2. I only have $10/week to spend on clothing, so I shop more for inspiration than I do for new clothes.
3. I’m making a little person. In my belly.

What are you wearing right now, as you type this?

A beige sweater dress from H+M, black maternity leggings from Target, and black and white patterned flats by Isaac Mizrahi for Target.

What is the last item of clothing you bought?

I went on a shopping spree a few weeks ago. The last item I purchased was a mustard yellow shift dress from H+M. I was so determined to
own it that I went to three different stores until I found my size.

Tell us about a favorite childhood memory about your clothes.

One year for Easter my parents bought me sunflower-print dress and a straw hat with a huge silk sunflower on it. A few weeks later, my mom suggested I wear it again. I was appalled! I thought you could only wear your Easter dress on Easter.

What is your best thrifting score?

A vintage sports T-shirt from 1977. It’s so special, I only wear it once a year.

Could you tell us your top three style tricks/DIYs?

1. If you’re not feeling good about your outfit, count the number of items you’re wearing. Then add layers and accessories until the number is at least six. I call this my six-item theory.

2. My favorite DIY is taking an old T-shirt (especially one that has a stain or doesn’t fit anymore) and making it into a necklace. It’s so cheap and easy!

3. I’m a tall girl (5’10”). You can save money by re-purposing too-short jeans into slouchy boyfriend jeans or shorts.
