Hi I’m so excited to talk with you! I am 22 years old and I’m currently residing in Alabama. I’ve lived all over, though! I call Minnesota and Washington home. I got married in June to the best person I know, my husband Caleb. Besides that, I’m food obsessed and my heart lies in advocacy.
What are your thoughts about fashion and what inspires your style?
I think anyone can be fashionable! Every body is included in my definition of fashion, so I believe it’s all about using what you truly love, whether thats the 70s, dark academia, or basics, and making it shine through your personality. There are no rules in fashion because it contains multitudes!
I used Pinterest for all of my inspo, so feel free to check out my monthly boards. I’m so inspired by art, color mixing, and textures. I was an art history minor in college, so I love to see anything that is a riff off of something else, like the Leonardo Da Vinci inspired tops (think baby cupids) that are all over right now! Mixing textures is a fun way to feel unique, too.
How did your interest in photography come about?
I’ve alwaaaaays loved taking photos, of myself and my surroundings, so I think it just sprung up even more when I got a camera for my 21st birthday! It’s really fun to play around with and I just genuinely enjoy learning about new things.
Can you share one tip to taking a great photo?
Think about your background before you think about how you look. If you look at all the great influencers, they have really beautifully balanced backgrounds that add to their aesthetic! You don’t always have to be in the middle of the picture.
Play around with being off to the side, running shots, detail shots, and try to line up the lines in your photo (use the grid feature for your phone camera to help with this!) with whatever you are wanting to focus on.
If you could time travel, where will you like to go and witness?
I would love to travel into the future to see how we move forward in society. I want to be there for the moment of granting universal healthcare, for when the prison industrial complex is abolished, for when sexual violence is only a thing of the past. I feel like we’re in a very exciting time in our country where people are pushing for progress. I can only dream of how far we’ll go.
Do you have any guilty pleasures when it comes to food?
I’m obsessed with cheese. I can’t give it up, no matter how hard I try! My favorites are queso and chips and baked brie. <3
Would you rather be completely invisible for one day or be able to fly for one day?
Ooo, definitely be able to fly! I have so many loved ones I miss dearly during this pandemic. To be able to visit them safely would be a dream!
What do you not get about the opposite sex?
I truly don’t understand the need to be hypermasculine! Harry Styles, Timothee Chalamet, those kind of men are what tons of women find attractive. I wish the gender binary wasn’t so present on them to be able to allow them to express themselves, however they want to.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Alli. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy is emboldened, to me. It’s truly feeling confident in your skin and loving who you are. I feel my sexiest when I feel like I am appreciating and loving my body how it is, not how it could be if I do this diet, if I exercise this much, etc. Sexy is present!
