WHAT SHE DOES FOR LOVE: I thrift-shop, celebrate great style of all shapes & sizes and live-tweet everything and anything humanly possible. I also try to see as many movies as I can.

HER STYLE: I've always prided myself on picking classic pieces that flatter my specific shape, but a black, suede, fringed jacket I snagged out of my nana's closet has to be my all time favorite piece.

HER 2015 GOAL: In 2015 I hope to further my career & continue rallying for a more inclusive fashion industry, through engaging in conversation and finding new ways to connect with and empower other women.

LADIES SHE ADMIRES: It's really difficult to pick just one. My nana, who still works full-time and has a better sense of style than anyone I know and my mom, who raised me for the greater portion of my life on her own and has done everything in her power to create a comfortable life for us. These two fiercely independent, badass women have each dealt with their fair share of hard times and overcame them with grace and of course, great style.
