Where are you from?
"Originally from Vietnam; I came here for school. I’m doing interior design at University of Manitoba. I just got off work now. I wore a blazer because it looks pretty formal."
"I normally wear dresses, even if its colder I’ll wear leggings and a jacket. I used to not be girly but I changed and have become girlier, so now I wear floral prints and bright colours.
"I am petite, so it’s hard to find supersmall sizes. I try and wear looser clothes, and I use belts around my waist to help bring curves. Bigger sizes aren’t bad if you’re small. You just need to know how to dress your body."
