Are you a Bakersfield Native? I moved here from Valencia when I was a week old.
Is there a style product that you absolutely can’t live without? Concealer. Just a little in the right spots makes a huge difference in my makeup.
Do you think Bakersfield has a style? I think it does. For the most part, it’s casual, but with a western flair.
Describe your personal style. Fun and girly! But I like to mix it up, so anything goes.
How long does it usually take you to get ready in the morning? Around 45 minutes...which isn’t very long.
Is there a celebrity or person in your life that you get your style from? Scarlett Johansson. She has a sexy, yet classy, look to her.
What are you wearing? A dress from Apricot Lane.
How do you personalize your ‘business’ look? I will wear a basic black bottom, like a pencil skirt or slacks, but add a colorful blouse to make the look pop.
What are your favorite places to shop in Bakersfield? Apricot Lane and Forever 21.
What is your favorite item of clothing? My Rock Revival Jeans.
What is the biggest fashion mistake you have made? In high school, for some reason, I thought I looked cute when I wore overalls.
Are you a bargain hound? Of course. I love to find a deal on something that was once twice the price.
What mistakes do you think men make when they dress? Baggy jeans. Fitted jeans have a much cleaner, neater look.
