Hi, Larissa! Please introduce your wonderful self!
My name is Larissa Gill, I am 21 years old and an aries! I grew up around Philadelphia but I now live in New York. I study Fashion Marketing at FIT and I am interested in creative direction and the editorial side of fashion. My dream job is to be a fashion and creative direction consultant and help companies with everything creative!
2. How would you describe your style in 3 words?
My style in three words would be colorful, I love wearing a ton of color and you will rarely see me in neutral tones or all black.
Next, I would say retro/vintage inspired, it is hard to put an exact word on this because the word "retro" is super over played but I shop mostly vintage and tend to be inspired by the 80's and 90's.
Lastly, I would say fun, I love throwing multiple statement pieces in one outfit and I am not afraid to mismatch and throw in as much color as possible!
2. What does personal style mean to you?
Personal style doesn’t just mean clothes, it's more than that to me. I think personal style is how you carry yourself, speak, dream, and of course how you dress. With time my personal style has changed a lot, but I think recently I have really found my own style that I will stick with for awhile!
3. Who or what inspires your style most?
Ah SO much! My depop and Instagram saved is basically filled with thick sweaters, silk dresses, and fun jackets. Some items I have in my shopping cart are: vintage Patagonia vest from the 80's, red Prada nylon bag, and a silk polka a dot skirt. Can you tell I am ready for the Fall? I think this winter and fall I will be wearing a ton of chunky sweater with a fun pant and sneakers and maybe a funky vest? Basically all of that is what I have been eyeing up vintage wise!
