Style Profile: College student outdoes herself with eclectic look
The 19-year-old North Dakota State University fashion merchandising major experiments with her look regularly, and she chopped off her long locks in November.
The new ’do suits fashion-minded Hagler, who works at Ann Taylor Loft in West Acres Shopping Center.
I spotted her downtown near Nichole’s Fine Pastry in a fresh combination of polka dots, chambray and plum (her Doc Marten boots).
Describe your style. I wear stuff a lot of people wouldn’t wear – it’s eclectic.
What are you wearing today? Everything’s from Loft except my Doc Martens. They’re my staple.
What’s your fashion philosophy? I try to dress up every day and to outdo my last outfit.
Where do you shop? Loft, Proper & Prim and Forever 21 for trendier things.
On the web, I like Urban Outfitters, Nasty Gal and Etsy.
Who’s your current style icon? Lupita Nyong’o.
What’s the weirdest fashion-related item you own? A red crewneck with a picture of a dog on it. My friend found it at a thrift store, and it was too small for him so I got it.
Who are your favorite designers? Elie Saab and Chanel. I really want a Chanel suit or jacket.
What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever worn? A green parrot-print dress I bought at LOFT.
If you had an unlimited amount of money, what fashion item would you buy? A trench coat, the most gorgeous one ever!
What would you never wear? UGGs or Crocs.
What’s your dream job? To be a fashion buyer or visual coordinator for a store/company.
You’re moving to Minneapolis this year. Where’s the best coffee in the city? Boiler Room Coffee. I had the best vanilla latte of my life there.
What’s the strangest thing in your purse? Four lighters. I see them on the street and have to pick them up.
You like to read. What’re you reading right now? “1984” by George Orwell.
