About me

Industry Fashion
Location Chicago, Illinois, United States
Introduction I really like clothes. Like really really like them. I'm also partial to classic rock and F. Scott Fitzgerald novels, but seriously. Fashion trumps all. When I'm not musing about riding boots and little black dresses, I'm either studying or exploring Chicago with my friends. Life is beautiful.
