Where are you on your way to?
I had just come from the Bursar’s office and was taking a walk while waiting for my roommate so we could go to church!

I am originally from Haiti
How would you describe your style?
My style is basically just a compilation of the places that I’m from and the places that I’ve been…I can’t say it’s really consistent on a daily basis. ["Compilation of places I'm from and places I've been..." Mm...I like that.]
What are your plans before school starts?
Just took time off from my internship before school so my plans are to relax, play with some kids [What kids?? And whose?? :P] and go to the beach!
School, Year, Major:
CAS, Junior, Politics/Pre-law
Why we spotted her:
Valerie rocked the optical-graphic tee + legging/pants so hard I simply had to ask her to stop. I couldn’t even tell if her leggings were leggings or Hotpants (that’s right, with a capital “H”) with the painted creases and all. Could’ve gone either way, I say. (BTW, I’ve been obsessed with these “denim leggings” lately. How can you lose with pull-on jeans?!? Check out Urban for more options). Quintessentially international, Valerie’s look is urban, edgy, and multifunctional. Outfits like this make me — dare I say — excited about back-to-school fun…
