Tell us your name, age, profession and what you typically wear every day (and anything you’d like to share).
Hi, my name is Brandy and I'm 23 years old. I am currently in school studying graphic design, and my big hobby is photography. I love fashion as well. I'm a very boho-chic, edgy-vintage kind of girl. I love to mix styles together, but I typically wear what [reflects the] mood I'm in. I'm usually wearing high-waisted shorts, button-up shirts, skater skirts, leggings, boots, tank tops and straw bowler hats.
How has Polyvore affected your life?
It has taught me so much about fashion and the latest trends, and what styles are out there. I love Polyvore and how it allows you to express your style to many other fashionistas out there.
How was your VIP Coachella experience? What was your favorite part of the trip?
OMG! The VIP experience was amazing! There were a couple of celebrities, and the food was amazing. My favorite booth was the smoothie booth. My favorite parts of the trip were walking around, experiencing different artists and their music, and meeting new people.
Did you see any celebrities at Coachella?
I saw Vanessa Hudgens. She has a boho style that I love. She pulls it off very well. And I also saw Jamie Chung, Solange [Knowles], Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, and Aimee Song (Song of Style). I got to sit next to her. I got nervous and didn't say hi to her, which I regret, but it was so much fun there.
Which celebrity do you think has great style and why?
I would say Selena Gomez because her style is very bohemian -- hippie with a mixture of skater and alternative, and I love that.
What did you wear to Coachella? What are some trends you saw there?
I wore high-waisted shorts, cropped shirts, maxi skirts, boots and sandals. The trends there were A LOT of high-waisted shorts and crochet lace tops with boots.
Describe your personal sense of style.
My personal sense of style is very laid back, nothing too out there. I like to keep it casual, but also add a bit of chic in my outfits to make a statement.
Describe one outfit that stood out at Coachella.
There was a girl wearing a very cute skirt with attached suspenders, a white shirt and cheetah high-top shoes, which I thought was cute.
What advice do you have for people who are going to Coachella for the first time?
You must bring comfortable shoes. You're going to be walking all day. Make sure to have water to stay hydrated.
Who were your favorite bands at Coachella?
Tegan and Sara, the Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, Metric, Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Two Door Cinema Club, Grimes and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
What are your personal aspirations/goals?
My goal is to one day have my very own business in photography. It’s what I love. I love capturing the beauty in people in just a click of a button.
Where do you live, and what trends are big there?
I live in Miami, and the trend here is floral prints. Spring is here, and people just can't get enough of bright colors, floral-print skinny pants and shorts, and also floral tops.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
It’s very hard to choose a favorite because I love different styles, but my favorite brand would probably be Forever 21. I can't get enough of their styles, from their bright colors to their dark, edgy clothing. H&M, PacSun, Nasty Gal and ThreadSence are my favorites as well because they all have styles that I would wear.
How often do you sign on and what is the first thing you do when you sign on?
I'm automatically signed in. I log on every day. When I do, I'm always checking out others’ styles and creating sets with whatever look I feel I would wear. I also enter contests.
Got any requests for the Polyvore team?
Just keep being awesome.
Anything else you would like us to know?
Thank you for the amazing trip to Coachella. It was the best experience I've ever had. And I appreciated all of the help with getting me there.
