Hi Speedy Girls!
The style contest has been very exciting, with Alicia taking one of the first few leads. Yet we know very little of Alicia (compared to our other contestants), so she is a very mysterious Speedy Girl. But all that changes today, because for our last feature in this contest, we interviewed Alicia to get a closer glimpse into her life. And we're sure you'll like her even more!
Could you tell us about the outfit you chose to put together and why?
I picked out the cropped top because polka dots and bows are two of my favorite things! I put together a casual outfit for an outing with my family. When I styled it, I knew that I would be out and about all day, so I kept it simple. The top looked perfect paired with skinny jeans and boots. I threw on a white cami underneath and wore a light sweater when it was chilly in the shade.
How would you describe your style?
My professional wardrobe is governed by pretty strict rules, so my personal style tends to lean toward casual/comfortable clothing. I love spending my weekends in jeans and boots, so that I can throw aside skirts and dresses for a few days!
Look around and grab the person closest to you right now. Ask him or her to dish out some words to describe you. Then give him or her a big speedy hug!
My husband is closest to me currently - he would describe me as 'vintage' and 'creative.' I'm not quite sure what that means and he's not elaborating (the Detroit Tigers game is on, no time for questions!), so that's what you get folks ;)
They say we are what we love... So tell us three things you cannot live without. (Feel free to tell us why!)
This is a tough one - if we're talking strictly material things then I have to say my iphone, my sewing machine (even though it's rarely used!) and my local craft/fabric store. I surf my phone for creative inspiration and DIYing/crafting helps me relax and forget about my sometimes-crazy school and work schedule!
On a beautiful day, where would we be able to find you?
Cruising the neighborhood for estate sales and thrifting. I love the thrill of the hunt and each shopping trip is like an adventure! I never know what I am going to find!
If you could pick the century you were born in, which century would you pick and why?
I would pick the late 19th century (like 1899) so that I would be in my 20s in the 1920s. I am so inspired by the fashion and lifestyle of the 20s and wish I could have lived through that era!
