What do you like to wear?

This is a go-to outfit for me. I always mix black and blue. I like stuff that's a little over the top. And I wear heels probably 90 percent of the time.

Do you have some crazy ones?

I have some vintage yellow heels. I have a pair of wooden wedge heels that are kind of fun, especially in the summertime.

Where do you shop?

When I was in eighth grade, I really got into thrift-store shopping. I like to go down to South High Street, or up to Northern Lights. I consider every store a possibility. I like Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, some department stores.

What are you shopping for right now?

This year, I tried to buy a real leather jacket, and it was the hardest thing ever, because there's so much fake leather out there. The leather jacket I have now I got from Top Shop when I was living in London, and I love it.

What do you think of London style?

There's so many expensive, beautiful clothes. To me, it's just inspiration. I don't know if I would say it's more progressive - there's definitely a style from Columbus that's more artistic and kind of DIY.

Tell me about your hair.

I had it long and curly for most of my life, and after I got back from London, I was like, "I want to chop it off."
