My Style L.A. featuring Jessica

I met Jessica randomly one day on my way back from lunch. She was sitting with an acquaintance of mine, drawing  patterns for her fashion class. With her cool tattoos and a dress made from a found skirt, I saw that she had a great style (and an even better smile). She’s pretty natural behind the camera too.

Occupation:
Fashion Design Student, Creative Thinker.

Where’d your outfit come from?
Nearly each layer came from a different place. The shoes were a gem found at Value Village, legwear from Ardenes, shorts from somewhere in California, cardigan and scarf from Wal-Mart, jacket was from Ricki’s and I got my t-shirt when I saw the Vancouver-based band The Jolts play…and then I cut it up.

Style Influences:
Everything: my mood that day, the season, friends, strangers, what music I’ve been listening to, magazines, vintage, comfort, self-expression…I was asked today how I picked my outfits in the morning and I didn’t really know how to answer. I just try stuff on until I’m happy, which is also why I can’t keep my room clean.

Something about me:
I cut my own hair. I like vinyls. And tattoos. I’m good with animals and children. I’m a BC girl, born and raised. I’m pretty weird, but people seem to like it. I like individuals and quirks.

  • I really like that her clothes represent her creative personality. It's not just the run-of-the-mill stuff you can pick up from Wal-Mart. Everything has a story behind it. Very cool!

    She cuts her own hair…interesting. You don't hear that happening much nowadays. Looks good, though! Saves the expensive haircut though. lol

    My gut tells me she'll do very well in fashion design. She obviously has a passion for it.
