How do you describe your style?
Frugal, comfortable and carefree.

I like your shirt. Is there a story behind it?
Thank you. I got this in India for, like, $5.

I’d say that’s frugal. Did you cut the neckline?
Yeah, it was a little too high. I guess I make changes to my clothes. These were pants, but I decided to cut them up because it’s summer and they weren’t cool as pants anymore.
