a few weeks ago, i blasted out an open fashion submission call. sam sent in her favourite spring look for the feature and i took notice. sam’s style is a great example of personal style. she knows what works for her, what she likes, and how to add a little pizazz to a simple look. let’s meet sam!
who: sam, 24, portland
what she’s wearing:
dress: forever21 // shoes: nine west // belt & clutch: j.crew // necklaces: baublebar & forever21 // headband: etsy // watch: fossil // bracelet: h&m
“I like wearing classic outfits but have a never say never attitude towards trends. I much prefer a skirt or a dress to jeans and shorts and I’d rather be over-dressed than under-dressed.”
favourite item in her closet:
“A vintage teal sequin dress. It’s high neck, low back, and is skin tight in a very flattering way. I bought it as a costume years ago and recently it made the transition from costume to party dress.”
the next item she’d like to add to her closet:
“Right now I am searching for the perfect pair of lavender skinny jeans and a white peplum top for a simple and classic look with a twist.”
how she ‘shops smart’:
“I’m always looking online or in stores for options, I rarely buy things without doing some research first. I love finding a good deal and searching sale racks as well as coupon codes online. As for trends, I buy them cheap and if it turns into something I really enjoy, then I will invest in a higher quality version.”
