Hi everyone! My name is Jane Yi and I’m 24 years old. I was born and raised in Redondo Beach and graduated from UCR with a degree in Media and Cultural Studies. I chose this major because I was and still am very interested by how much media affects our society today. I am currently a stylist in the fashion industry and am also the owner of @shoptrendyi.
My main purpose of starting my online boutique is to be able to provide affordable yet quality clothes to students and young women because I believe that every woman deserves to look and feel their best without having to break the bank.
Where do you get your fashion inspiration from?
I’m really inspired by fashion bloggers and icons such as Olivia Culpo, Aimee Song, and Kendall Jenner. I look up to them a lot because not only do I love their classy and elegant style, but I also admire them as women.
Are there any quotes or mottos you like to use or resonate strongly with you?
To not give a f*ck about what anyone thinks of you. I feel like a lot of us can get so caught up in how other people view us and I used to be guilty of this too. I was in a sorority when I was in college, so naturally I used to care a lot about my image and how people viewed me because of the environment I was in, but now I could care less about what anyone thinks of me or of what I’m doing. I think the most important thing is that you’re happy with the person that you are and the lifestyle that you are leading.
Which is a memorable travel experience (good or bad) you have had before?
My most memorable travel experience would have to be my trips to South Korea because they’re always spent with family. I don’t get to see my relatives as often as I’d like because all of them are either in South Korea or Canada so I always enjoy those trips the most.
What have you always wanted to do but have yet to find the time for it?
I’ve always wanted to go snorkelling or skydiving. I love the ocean and activities that get my adrenaline running.
If you can have a super power, what will it be?
I would want healing powers so that I can help people who are sick because I know how it feels to lose someone that you love due to an illness.
Are you more of a morning person or night owl?
I am definitely a morning person! I love starting off the day with a morning workout and I find myself the most productive during the day.
What turns you off on a date?
When a guy talks about himself or the materlistic things that he owns for majority of the date. I won’t be impressed.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Jane. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Thank you for taking the time to reach out to me! I really enjoyed answering all of these questions. To me, there’s nothing more “sexy” than confidence and that’s why I’m so passionate about Fashion. It’s such a fun and empowering way for people to express themselves. So personally, I feel the most confident when I’m wearing an outfit that I love and I want to help other women feel the same.
