How would you describe your style? I would describe it as old style mixed with new trends. I think every era has some major things to offer. For the photo shoot, I wore a short lace dress that I bought at Forever 21 and matched it with some Oxford heels from Savers, shoes from decades ago.

Where do you like to shop? Consignment shops, Salvation Army . . . I go out with my mom consignment shopping. It's a lot of fun shopping with her. We do a lot in Western Mass. For home goods stuff, I like Tables to Teapots in West Acton. For clothes, I like Savers; there's one in Dedham that I go to.

What have you been buying lately? I've been buying wide-leg pants, high-waisted pants, and short skirts. I also like tights and short dresses.

How would you describe your style? I would say weird, quirky, funny. But I always want to be dressed-up and professional-looking.

What patterns and colors most appeal to you? I like flower patterns, and for colors, I like blues, blacks, and browns, with bold tights or a bold lipstick thrown in.

What do you wish people would wear more of? Bright lipstick. I just started wearing it myself.
