CollegeFashionista: I absolutely love your outfit and overalls, where are all your pieces from?
Sarah Nadolski: I searched for overalls when I saw that they had become a trend again because I found them to be so cute! The only problem was the last pair of overalls I owned were from my childhood so it became my mission to find the perfect pair of overalls. These overalls are from Value World (thrift shop in Indianapolis) and my shoes are from Goodwill. My shirt is from Cactus Flower and my backpack was a gift from my parents.
CF: Where do you usually shop?
SN: I shop mostly at thrift stores and if I can’t find what I want at thrift stores, then I go downtown to either Cactus Flower or AZ Vintage.
CF: Since you shop mostly at thrift stores, can you give the readers some advice on thrifting?
SN: Keep persevering, it gets tough to find pieces; especially when you walk into a store and it’s packed with clothes. Try to take your time and go through all the clothing. Also while you’re shopping keep an open mind because you will never know what you’ll find!
CF: What are some of your favorite trends for this season?
SN: I obviously love boots but I also enjoy a maxi skirt with a crop top. Another trend that I’ve seen that has become one of my favorite trends is pairing matching crop tops and skirts.
CF: Where do you get your style inspiration?
SN: I really like vintage fashion; the time era I enjoy the most is the ’60s.
CF: Who is your style icon?
SN: Annie Cark, a musician that is also known as St. Vincent. She really has impeccable style.
