CollegeFashionista: Tell us about your look?
Sammy Luterbach: My look is totally inspired by of the moment fashion, but my classics include anything covered in sparkles, feathers, or bold colors. Leopard print is present in almost every ensemble I wear. I'm never afraid to let my personality dictate my clothing choices, and have never let a confused look from a drab stranger dampen my day. Basically, my look can be summed up in the old Ikea ad, "Be brave. Not Beige."
CF: Why do you choose to imitate L.A.M.B’s runway look?
SL: The particular look I imitated was effortlessly cool with a downtown vibe, but it still would be a bit much for walking to my morning classes in. It was easy to make the look my own and a little warmer for the cold temperatures outside, but it still retained the feeling of the original ensemble.
CF: Three words to describe your personal style?
SL: Funky, bold, and eclectic.
CF: Favorite style icon?
SL: Sarah Jessica Parker and Gwen Stefani. They’re both willing to take a risk, but still manage to always look pulled together, lady-like, and chic.
CF: Best thing about street style fashion at University of Wisconsin?
SL: People take chances and want nothing more than to express themselves. I can fully relate and appreciate the large variety of styles I see on a daily basis.
