Name: Jacqueline Curtis
Having fashion sense means staying true to what you love, no matter what. If you like wearing hot-pink sweatpants with a ripped T-shirt, then, so be it, but no one should ever be able to tell you what good or bad fashion is. If you think something is beautiful, and it’s something you love wearing, then that is what I call fashion sense.
2. Who or what inspires your style?
I would have to say that Dita Von Teese has become one of my idols in the last few years. When everyone was so desperate to go out and get spray tans, she would sit at home and embrace her naturally beautiful complexion. It’s as though she lives in her own bubble of fashion while everyone is chasing the next big thing. She knows who she is and she is not ashamed to show it. For someone to be so different yet so strong is one of the sexiest qualities a person can own.
3. As a college student on a budget, where do you do most of your shopping?
I’m a huge bargain hunter, so every time I see one of those red adorned signs with the word “SALE” written in bold, you will see me sprinting there, knocking over anything and everything that gets in my way. This is something that I learned at an early age. I used to sit there and cut out coupons with my grandma when I was three years old, because I was convinced that they were money. Ever since then, I have gotten into the habit of only buying things that were on sale. Once in a while, I might treat myself to some shoes, or maybe even some jewelry, but that’s usually after finals when I feel like I deserve it most.
4. Where do you see the future of fashion going?
I can honestly tell you that I don’t have a clue! There are no boundaries or limitations when it comes to fashio
n, and fashion is constantly evolving with every passing moment. It is the art that we cover our bare asses with, in hopes that we can share what we love with the rest of the world.
5. What is currently your go-to piece in your wardrobe?
I would have to say that my current go-to pieces are my plain V-neck T-shirts. I still adore them, after all these years. They are just so easy and versatile. I can either go casual with a scarf, jeans, and flats, or I could dress them up with my leather skirt, a statement necklace, and some funky heels. There is absolutely no way that this piece can go wrong, and that’s why it’s so perfect!
