How would you describe your personal style?
“Hip hop prep.”
Who are your style icons?
“Ralph Lauren, Kanye West, Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, and Dolce & Gabbana - they really push things forward. I take a look at what everyone is doing and incorporate pieces of what they do into what I do.”
Where do you like to shop?
"Everywhere. Online, at the mall, outlets, thrift stores, eBay. If I think of something and get in the mood to find it, I will go scour the Internet and find it. If I get my heart set on something, like new desert boots or yellow boat shoes, I'll go out and find exactly where I can get them so I can round out my wardrobe."
What's on your fashion wish list?
"Just those yellow boat shoes!"
What is your one must-have wardrobe item?
"My favorite pair of Seven jeans: Dawson cut, stone wash, dark navy. I wear them when I'm going out and around the house. Some people wear sweatpants, I wear Sevens."
How has your style evolved over the years?
"My style has been like this since I was four years old, my mom dressed me like this. If you look at pictures from when I was little, it's crazy, I'm wearing almost the exact same thing as now. I had on my little blazer and khakis. My mom instilled in me a prep style and it really stuck with me. Throughout high school, everyone was trying to do the fads, and I just stuck to Polo and Hilfiger."
Most embarrassing fashion moment?
"I think the most embarrassing moment was when I had a pair of skinny chinos and I think they were a little skinnier than I thought they were. I went to pick up my Blackberry and I heard the rip and it was done. I was in a crowd of people and it was embarrassing."
