Iliana: Locally, I love the selection at Blue Velvet, Frock on Vintage, Bloomers and Frocks. I tend to mix standard clothing (plain jeans, tops, miniskirts) and incorporate them with a beautiful vintage cardigan, dress, or top.

WYV: How do you wear your voice?

Iliana:I wear my voice by picking out my clothing with no reservations or apology about my body. I wear whatever I want to feel, at times it can be very glamours and other times more relaxed. I try to not limit myself by staying with in any specific genre of clothing or style, and make sure to always go out of my comfort zone.
