What were you doing when scouted: I was on my way to take a bus to my journalism class.

Describe your style: I really like wearing dresses with patterns, geometric shapes and bright colors. I always wear red lipstick every day. People say they know me because of my long hair, red lips and because I’m super pale!

Fashion trends you love: I am really into the high-waisted shorts and jeans right now. And the sleeveless button-up blouses, layering with scarves, long necklaces and high wedges!

Fashion trends you hate: I don’t understand when people shave one side of their head, mainly girls with long hair that shave a piece off.

Fashion influences: I really like Lana Del Rey and Zooey Deschanel. I love classic ‘40s and ‘50s looks.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence: I love Lawrence mainly for the music and art scene. I guess just to continue to see those areas.

Less of? Crazy weather

Tattoos or piercings: I have eight piercings, and they’re all on my head!

Who do people say you look like? I don’t personally see it, but style-wise, people say I look like Liz Taylor when she was young. Or Flo, the Progressive (Insurance) girl.

What type of music do you unwind to? I really like alternative and folk acoustic stuff. I also like calming indie music that I can do my homework to.

Tell us a secret … I can’t whistle!

Your your fashion style is just like your personality. Very vibrant! I'm really starting to like Style Scout! You never know what to expect which makes it interesting as well.

Obviously, that look doesn't work for all women, but it sure does work for Ms. Adcock.
