Monica Clifford, Junior

Interview by John Mendiola

Q: How would you describe your personal style?

A: Pretty eclectic. Very colorful. And obnoxious.

Q: What are your favorite stores?

A: Vintage Tex, a vintage clothing store I worked at this summer, and Mod Cloth, a website, if I buy something new. Mostly though, my clothes are hand me downs from my mom and sister, shirts that I made myself and stores like Goodwill, Boysville and Buffalo Exchange.

Q: What article of clothing do you most adore?

A: Dresses. Definitely dresses. I have over 40.

Q: What is your fashion inspiration?

A: I’ve defined my style as Jackie O meets Ugly Betty. I’d like to view myself as classy and I sometimes meet that. But I also like to be colorful.

Q: What was the best outfit you ever wore?

A: There’s this one dress that I have that has all these candy, popcorn, ice cream and stuff on it. It’s one of my favorite dresses in the world.

Q: What has been your worst fashion blunder?

A: There isn’t just one. I dress to feel good and if I don’t feel good with a dress than that’s a problem.

Q: Do you have a fashion philosophy?

A: Oh! Dress how you feel or want to feel! Because sometimes I can get sad and dressing up helps make me feel better.

Interview by Mason Walker

 

Q: How would you describe your personal style?

A: I’d call it a combination of edgy (but not too edgy) and classy (but not snooty).

A: Probably one of my Express ties coupled with a good suit. That’s what I wear for parties, dinners, etc.

Q: What has been your worst fashion blunder?

A: Well, I did run around in a supermarket in a loincloth when I was four. I guess you could call that a fashion blunder.

Q: Do you have a fashion philosophy?

A:”If you look good, you feel good.”
