Name: Carolina Azevedo
Major: Product Design
CollegeFashionista: Where is your outfit from?
Carolina Azevedo:I spend a lot of time browsing alternative fashion websites. When I find a piece that I really love I have to make it my own. For example, this bag I first saw on a fashion blog, and bought it from a Chinese site. My boots are Brazilian, I checked the brand and looked for it online.
CF: What difficulties do you encounter when shopping?
CA: Since I’m not skinny, it’s not easy to find clothes that fit me, and most of plus size clothes don’t fit right. I buy most of my pants while on vacations to the United States. Only now did the Brazilian fashion world begin to make bigger clothing for curvy Fashionistas.
CF: Who/What inspires your style?
CA: I’m always checking Lua P on LOOKBOOK, Annika Victoria on Chictopia and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.
