"I prefer to wear a dress any day over a pair of jeansl"

Job: apparel designer at Atrium and designer of Delicious Tees, her own line

Neighborhood: Grandview

Hometown: Cleveland

Label your style: "Equal parts bohemian, pinup wannabe and bag-lady chic"

Where do you like to shop?

I wear a lot of Alternative Apparel - a wholesale company - Forever 21, Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters. If I could shop anywhere, though, it would be Free People, Betsey Johnson and Alexander McQueen on the weekends.

What fills most of your closet?

I prefer to wear a dress any day over a pair of jeans. And I have a ton of T-shirts, leggings, boots. I like very earth-tone-based colors.

Talk about your T-shirt line.

It's creatively designed T-shirts that express messages of unity, spirit and love. They tell a story. I sell at ComFest every year, and through ShopDeliciousTees.com.

What trendy styles are you not into?

I do not like skinny jeans, because I have curves. I do not like anything that's '80s retro. I just don't feel it.

What beauty products are you devoted to?

I love Armani Code. I never leave home without black mascara, black eyeliner and lip gloss, but every time I go to the store, I buy a different brand mascara.

How do you do your hair?

I use a really tight curling iron, and it just kind of does the natural wave thing. It really doesn't take more than 15 to 20 minutes, and it's good for two days, so it's worth that time. I get it cut at Atelier in Grandview by Jessica.

The outfit:

Dress: Forever 21

Necklace: "It's something I put together from various necklaces. I lose things a lot, which is why this is hodge-podged together."
