Hannah defines my description of a true Fashionista as someone who creates an outfit with personal integrity. As well as someone who wears an outfit with pride regardless of what’s in season or currently on the racks. Hannah pushes the envelope and is not afraid to step outside of stylistic bounds. She gravitates towards pieces that most would find uncomfortable to sport, which showcases her audacious fashion. From head to toe she puts her artistic footprint on each segment of her look, from the beret to her manicured curls, zealous lipstick and vivid jeans. I admire the bold assortment of psychedelic colors and patterns. Her outfit takes me to another era and presents a retro feel. I was drawn to her color popping pants. She even manages to find beauty in clunky rain boots that are ever so imperative in the North West. Color has never felt so fresh with this look.
