Not only was this Fashionista named a finalist in Penn Fashion Week’s Best Dressed Competition, this stylish experimenter was also recently featured as one of Teen Vogue’s “Best Dressed College Students Across the Country.” To create her signature looks, this Fashionista reinterprets thrift store finds and makes them her own.
