You have such a large social media following. How did that come about? Did you ever venture to create this audience?
I mean, I think it just kind of happened naturally because of who I’m dating—and people are interested in who this guy’s girlfriend is—so I think that just happened naturally. At the end of the day, that’s probably how people found me. At the same time, I’m showcasing my primary focus, vintage. I think I have a unique way of putting together outfits, and I'm doing something different; it’s interesting to people. It’s probably a combination of both, how my following has grown.
This is going to sound cliché, but has there been a downside to having so many people follow you?
I mean, I think with anybody—whether they have a lot of followers or are in the public eye—there’s going to be a lot of ridicule out there. But at the end of the day, you can’t really focus on that or read comments because it’s an outlet where people can do and say whatever they want—and you can’t let that affect you. And I definitely don’t; it’s just brushed off the shoulder. So, I mean, that’s the only thing that could be negative from it, but if you don’t look at mean comments, then the negativity isn’t there.
