What are you wearing?
Forever 21 black polka-dot sheer dress, black leotard from H&M.

Describe your style: I think of my style as an extension of my personality. I like to piece together clothing that I find at second hand stores and create unique outfits that no one else has.

How has your style evolved over the last year? My style has become more confident over the year. I stopped wearing bras and became less interested in the opinions of others in terms of style. I think it’s important to wear what you want and be proud of it.
