“Fashion is an expression of style. It’s wearable art. I like to wear comfortable things, so I don’t typically buy fashions at the front of the store. I like to go to the nook and cranny of the store where I’ll find things that not everybody is wearing. I look online at a lot of different sites to pick out styles I like.

I just bought a really nice blazer at a thrift store for $4.”
