What is something that others might not know about you?
When I laugh I can grunt, sometimes it just happens.
What is your current iPhone wallpaper?
It's something of abstraction, just a picture.
If you had to listen to one album on repeat for a week, which one would you choose?
Oh, it's hard. I would choose an album with multiple artists' songs.
What is your real-life job?
I'm working in a thrift store.
What is your dream job?
Something that will give me more space to be creative and more free time.
Describe your personal style in three words:
Casual, comfy, lovely.
Favorite fashion decade?
I like boho style, so let it be 70s
Tell us about your style icons:
I like Jessica Alba's style because she wears different styles in her everyday life, it looks really stylish yet comfy. I like Rachel Zoe 's style because her style is more boho chic.
What is something that you could wear with every outfit for a week?
Sunglasses, because it's summertime here and I can't go outside without them.
Are there any style trends you once tried but now make you cringe?
Hmm, let me think over it. I honestly don't remember, but perhaps low rise jeans, I still don't like them and they're on trends again. Never say never.
Have you purchased anything lately that you absolutely love?
My white linen shirt, high-rise jeans, powder pink hoodie.
When you start a new designk, what is the first thing you place on the blank canvas?
It depends, sometimes I use a picture and start from it; sometimes I set an outfit and then pick up a picture that matches the outfit.
What is something that you (almost) always include in your sets?
Almost always, I use pictures that match the outfits.
What do all of your favorite sets have in common?
I find many sets great just because of a unique style/technique to put items, get them together and make them work together.
Any advice for creatives looking to improve their creative process?
Be yourself (I know it sounds cliche but it's true). Be true to yourself and to your own style and you will find out how many people have the same view of style as you do.
Any fellow ShopLookers that you get inspiration from?
There are many ppl on here who inspire me, if I didn't include you here, sorry, I didn't do this on purpose:
