Hi everyone! My name is Whitney. I'm currently a sophomore fashion major at Parsons.
In my free time I like to read (everything from Shakespeare to Sophie Kinsella), peruse magazines/ blogs, wait frantically for the new season of Sherlock to come out (is it this fall or 2014?! ah!), learn new languages (my suitemate's teaching me a bit of Indonesian), dance, listen to music, eat an endless amount of desserts, drink tea, paint (especially of the oil variety), chat/ hang out with friends, attempt to cook, explore cities, travel, visit museums, and watch Disney films (I have an oldie collection of the VHSes).
For my personal style I try to pair contradictory styles and incorporate colors.
