What year are you in at Montclair?
I’m a junior.

I’m wearing a maxi from H&M, a white cropped jacket from BCBGeneration, and wedges by Steven Madden.
Who is your fashion icon or someone you admire?
Are you a designer junkie?
With handbags, yes! But with apparel, I mix it up with labels and non-labels.
How would you describe your style? Is it in a category or not? (Example classy chic, edgy, hipster etc.)
Who is your favorite fashion designer?
What's your favorite fashion quote?
“Fashion fades, but style is eternal.” - Yves Saint Laurent
What would be your be perfect summer outfit ? Explain your outfit.
My perfect summer outfit would be high waisted shorts, wedges, and a knitted crop top.
How will you be spending your vacation? Will you be on campus? Any internships?
My summer vacation will consist of lots of work! I will be doing my internship at my job, so I will be gaining a lot of experience. I'm also looking forward to turning 21.
What are your summer essentials/must haves?
Sandals and sundresses are my absolute favorites in the summer!
During the summer, do you usually wear something that's comfortable or are a fashionista all year long? Picture it being a long hot summer day.
I try to look my best at all times because you never know who you might meet! I also think it’s possible to look great and be comfortable at the same time - even in the summer.
Any style advice you would offer students who will be on campus during the summer?
Campus gets very hot over the summer, so go for light colors, shorts/skirts and day dresses.
