My main channel is Instagram.
fabUplus Magazine: Describe your personal style. What are some of your signature colors, styles, and accessories?

I have been in the fashion/retail industry for 8 years.Both of my bachelors and masters in fashion business merchandising do I have been companies be more aware of being inclusive and also I have seen brands that do not care and have been canceled. For the industry to start to give more variety to all women has given me hope that fashion is being receptives to all women.
fabUplus Magazine: What are some of your favorite shopping and styling tips?
