Chicago Looks: Show Off Them Stems

Can you tell me a bit about your hair?
My hair. Honestly it does this on its own. Right now, to prevent it from getting any bigger, I use this argan oil stuff that prevents it from frizz. But I use something different every time I run out of product, so it’s hard to keep track.

What are you looking forward to wearing this summer?
I’m looking forward to showing off the legs. Joining roller derby means show off them stems, girl! But then cover the bottom half up with an old pair of Doc Martens.

What does great style mean to you?
Great style means comfortable yet eye-catching. Although the comfortable part is few and far between. I guess that the main thing is, style is only fun if you have fun wearing it. I don’t have a specific style that I stick to. Today I went early nineties with the high-waisted jean cutoffs, a crop top, and a pair of Docs. Last week I wore a black-and-white zigzag summertime dress with a pair of Docs. The week before was bright colorful leggings with an oversized T-shirt and a pair of Docs. The only recurring theme with me is the pair of Docs that I’m wearing, but they’re always in a different color.

Is there something you’d never wear?
I would never wear cowboy boots. Or anything in the “western” genre. That would be the only thing that’s “not my style.”
