Label your style: "Relaxed and random."

Where do you like to shop?

Half of my wardrobe's from my roommates or thrift stores. I like to go to Mad 4 Mod. And if I have money, I'll go to American Apparel or Urban Outfitters.

What do people usually catch you in?

I usually wear dresses or high-waisted skirts, or I'll wear jeans, moccasins and a big sweater.

What makes a good thrift store, to you?

I like it when you walk in and there's a bunch of stuff everywhere, it's cluttered and you have to pile through clothes to find stuff. Ohio's Best on Cleveland Avenue is my favorite.

What do you usually get at thrift stores?

Mostly sweaters or sweater vests, T-shirts and sometimes bags and old-school pumps.

Is there anything you won't buy there?

Any undergarments.

Did you used to dress differently?

When I was younger, I used to wear spandex every day, and I would glue stuff to my spandex and paint on my shirt.

Is there anything in your closet you're embarrassed of?

I got a skirt last time I went to the thrift store. It's a giant skirt with a cartoon beach scene on it - people in Hawaiian shirts with buckets and beach shovels in their hands. It's ridiculous. I took a picture of it and sent it to my boyfriend, like, "Would you break up with me if I wore this on my next date?" I haven't worn it yet.

The outfit:

Shirt: Volunteers of America

Tank top: Volunteers of America

Scarf: From Cambodia, a gift from her sister. "I like ethnic-looking things."

Jeans: Forever 21. "That's the only place that I can find jeans that fit very well."

Moccasins: A Christmas gift from her mom. "I love moccasins. I got my favorite pair - I'm not wearing them today - on eBay."

Necklace: Made by her friend, Angela.

Bag: She can't remember.
