Name: Alexandra Gustafson

Age: 21

Relationship status: Yes, I’m in one.

Hometown: Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

Time in Lawrence: A year.

Occupation: I’m an English lit major and a T-shirt maker at ACME.

Dream job: I’m working on my undergrad right now. Then, I’m going to get my masters in English lit and I hope to work in a museum for American literature.

What were you doing when scouted? Making T-shirts!

Describe your style: I’m not sure. I wear a lot of leggings ... and a lot of black.

Fashion trends you love: Leggings, obviously! I’m a big fan of combat boots, layers and red lipstick.

Fashion trends you hate: I really hate the buns on top of the head. I’m not a fan.

Fashion influences: There is one website that I really like: it’s an Australian company called Black Milk. They actually made these leggings but they do a bunch of really cool patterns and stuff like that. That’s where I get a few styling tips.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? Nothing comes to mind.

Less of? I’d like to see less of the pink T-shirts and running shorts that all the girls are wearing in school.

Tattoos or piercings: Yup, I have three tattoos. One tattoo is made up of swallows that I got for my sister.

Whom do people say you look like? When I had longer hair I got January Jones or Claire Danes.

What type of music do you unwind to? I actually listen to a lot post hard-core like Screamo, which calms me down.

Tell us a secret: I did not know how to ride a bike until recently.
