NW: Thrift stores and vintage stores, Urban Outfitters, ModCloth, and Anthropologie.
CF: What is your favorite item in your closet right now?
NW: I bought a classic trench coat, similar to the Burberry style, from H&M and I love it. I would wear it every day if I could. Also, I got this actual vintage Army button-up from my Dad and I like wearing it as an over shirt.
CF: What is your favorite fashion trend lately?
NW: Work boots and colored denim. I haven’t gotten on the colored denim trend yet, I need to go buy some colored jeans.
CF: What is a major fashion sin in your opinion?
