I really don’t like getting dressed up. It’s a lot more comfortable to be in some type of T-shirt or dry-fit shirt and shorts. That’s pretty much my typical attire.

I like Lil Wayne’s style. His style probably influences me the most. Basically, he’s just wearing exactly what he feels like wearing. He goes to the club, and he’s got shorts and a wife-beater on.

I used to think fashion was something unattainable and reserved only for people who look like models. But looking back, I’ve always made bold choices, possibly beginning with the silk jungle print jacket, orange shorts, and Nepalese cap I insisted on wearing every day when I was ten.
I used to overpack a lot and sometimes even forgot vital pieces of clothing, such as my swimming shorts and sandals. I’m much better now.

Growing up, I’ve been shamed a lot. Being a curvy girl, being young and seeing the skinny girls wear short shorts because it’s cause it’s hot outside, but I want to put on shorts and it’s provocative, or I want to put on a tank top and it’s provocative.
