Hi, it's Jennifer Chan for Typef.com, and I'm your girl on the street. Today, we're in Venice, California, where the vibe is beachy and relaxed, and the girls are effortlessly cool. This girl looked cool and confident in her casual, yet chic outfit. We had to know more about her urban look. What's your name? Alma. And where are you from? Originally from Mentor but I live in Venice now. Describe your personal style. Just kind of urban-y, edgy, I like vintage stores a lot. I like thrift stores a lot, it's kind of like my style pretty much. Okay, and walk us through your outfit. Where did you get everything from? I got the shirt from Urban a really long time ago off the sale rack. I got these jeans at a boutique store in Mentor as well as the purse and then I got the shoes, they're Dolce Vita, but they're from Urban, like they're sold through Urban. Wow, so you love Urban? I love Urban. I probably own half of Urban with half the stuff that I have from them. It's crazy. Okay, and what's your favorite trick for flattering your figure? Kind of just dressing your size and knowing, like, to compare, like, if you wear, like, super tight jeans and wear a super tight shirt, just kind of, like, even it out, you know. So, it's all about balancing your outfit I think. And who are your style icons? I really like Michelle Williams. I love Michelle Williams and I also like Rachel Bilson. Great, describe your style in three words. Fun, I would say sometimes boyish, maybe edgy. Great, thank you so much. For more fashion and beauty tips just for you, go to Typef.com.
