Label your style: Classic, with a twist

How does your exposure to the fashion world every day at work influence you? We're constantly shopping competitors ... so it's very important to keep up with the fashion trends, which I don't mind. I'm a shopaholic at heart.

Do you go shopping all the time? I'm at the mall at least once a week for work, so it's very hard ... for me to not buy something for myself sometimes.

What do you like that's new in stores? I really love the neutrals and pale colors for spring. Forever 21 has a bunch of bohemian stuff, which is really cute.

What do you splurge on? Number one, handbags; number two, jeans. If you were to see my collection of purses and jeans, you would probably, like, pee your pants. I have a problem.

Is this how you usually wear your hair? I just recently got bangs. I don't know if I like them yet. I've been going to the same girl who cuts my hair for like 15 years - Bethany at Perfect Image in Westerville.

What about makeup? I love MAC for their eye shadows and eyeliners and NARS for their blush and bronzers. Burt's Bees or ChapStick is what I wear on my lips most of the time.

The outfit:

Jacket: Zara. "This jacket-slash-sweater - I don't really know what to call it - is a good layering piece."

Jeans: Earnest Sewn. "I can wear jeans to work, so that makes me find a reason to buy more. I have probably 30 pairs."

Belt: Forever 21

Shoes: Guess

Bag: Coach

Earrings: Swarvoski crystals
