Hem Vintage Finds:

Recreate the look with Jessica's How To Easily Hem Vintage Finds tutorial:

How would you describe your style?

My style is whimsical and colorful while also being edgy and girly.

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

My favorite piece is probably my spiked + floral headband. I wear it with just about every outfit I can. It's so comfortable and adds the perfect amount of flair to every outfit. 

Who are your style icons?

I have a hard time admiring celebrities and people that are possibly professionally styled. Though I am incredibly inspired by my real life friends and all of the incredible fashion bloggers that I know. I think I am most inspired by Keiko Lynn and Southern (California) Belle. 

Do you have any favourite designers?

I am not much of a designer person, but I am always inspired by Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, and Rachel Antonoff. 

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

I like to shop anywhere that has a sale rack. 

Do you make or customise your outfits?

I am a very petite girl (under 5'0) so I usually have to hem my dresses and skirts. I like buying long thrifted skirts and making them minis -- I always have something unique. There is immense power in the art of chopping and hemming pieces!

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?   

Accessorize! Accessories take an outfit from blah to wow in a matter of seconds. If your dress is shapeless, grab a sparkly belt. If you hair looks boring, grab a big bowed headband or a hat. As far as mixing it up, the easiest way is to maximize your wardrobe. Have a favorite dress? Wear it as a skirt, with different blazers, swap out the shoes, do your hair differently. Find an accessory and make it your signature thing. For me, the spiked headband and hats are my go to items and they always help mix up an outfit and also make it very me.
