Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?
I love shopping for treasures at vintage and consignment shops and off-price retailers like T.J.Maxx and Gordmans.
Do you make or customise your outfits?
I like to customize my outfits with the accessories I wear, how I layer everything together, and how I tuck, tie, or roll the sleeves or hems of pants.
Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?
My favorite place to find outfit inspiration is Pinterest. If you're looking to up your fashion game I would start with one piece in your closet you would like to wear wether it be a purse, shoes, scarf, jeans, a top etc. type that in the search box of Pinterest with the phrase "outfit ideas" like "backpack outfit ideas" or "red dress outfit ideas" and you will see lots of pictures. Those images should give you lots of inspiration on how you could style your backpack in a new way or what to wear with your new scarf. Once you find pictures you like study them to see what it is you like about them and try to recreate that with the clothing you already have. Try tucking your shirt in or rolling up the hem of your pants like the inspiration pictures you chose. You will not only learn what you like and don't like, but it will also help you to personalize your outfits.
