As ShopLook grows, the value of each and every user does not diminish. It is the reason our team and I work so hard each day. Our dream is for everyone who uses ShopLook to feel part of a community, and that's why we are starting this series featuring our users.
Our user community is what makes ShopLook unique, and it is filled with talented creators that continually inspire us. This series is your invitation to learn more about your fellow users, and the hope is that it will help build a strong ShopLook community.
Since joining the ShopLook community in March of 2020, Abby has quickly become one of our top users. We love her unique and beautiful designs, but it's not the only reason why we love her. She is a compassionate member of the community that frequently reaches out to other creators to chat, collaborate, or simply compliment their work.
Abby is one of the users that makes ShopLook what it is today, and we're excited to include her as a featured user in this series. Thank you for being you, Abby!
Abby is a professional designer and brand storyteller that lives in Oakland, California. You can check out some of her work here: abby-mae.com

What tips do you have for others who are looking to get better in their creative process?
There are so many talented creatives (professional and non-professional) in the ShopLook community, and it's easier than you might think to be part of that conversation. If you come across a mind-blowing set, then don't be afraid to let the creator know! If you'd love to know how they came up with an idea for a set or have other questions about their process - just ask! It doesn't matter if you've been in the fashion industry for 20 years, or if you are getting ready to start middle school next year. We're all here because we have an eye for style and we love to create.
What is your favorite decade of fashion and why?
Late 60's/early 70's were pretty amazing. Rock and roll and beginning of disco. What's not to love? Plus, it was before fashion was being cranked out at such a worldwide, industrial scale. Shopping has never been more convenient, and fashion trends have never been more accessible than they are right now. Those things can be really great, but style from place to place was much more unique back then.
What was the most embarrassing fashion trend you once embraced?
Eyebrows that were waaaaay too thin. Fortunately, it was only brief.
You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it?
