Where’d you get your outfit? My sweater is my mom’s, which I think she got at a mom and pop clothing store. The shirt and the skirt are from H&M, and this is a Coach purse.

I see that you have your hair in an updo. Yeah, I teased it. I’ve been doing that since college. I don’t like it to be flat. Because I work in an office, I don’t like for it to get in the way.

Break down your outfit: These slacks are my mom's. They're really comfortable and nice to wear to work. This top is my mom's also. I don't know where she got it. It's kinda vintage. And this other top, I got it at H&M. I like feeling really relaxed at work. This necklace belongs to my sister's friend. I don't wear my clothing. I like wearing other people's clothes! This bag is from JC Penney.
