A little about our newest Vintage Hem Model Heather...
• Tell us about you?
Well, my name is Heather. I’m 24 and currently live in downtown Salt Lake. I am a visual arts major and will be graduating from BYU come August, yay! Along with being an artist, I love everything in the fashion industry whether if it’s modeling, photography, clothing design, makeup artistry, and whatnot. I also LOVE dancing and have a huge passion for music. In general, I’m a very happy person, love meeting new friends, and believe it’s the experiences in life that make you who you are.
• Tell us about your family?
My family is awesome. I have the best mom in the world and my dad is pretty much a genius. I am the second oldest of seven and think it’s the perfect spot! I’ve learned from my older sister since she’s had to experience everything first, but, like her, I am a big sister and get to see my younger siblings grow up. Then there’s Alfie, only THE cutest puppy ever, who I’ve recently adopted.
• What would we find in your refrigerator right now?
I’m not much of a cook, so I’m all about simple and quick. Some things I have are yogurt, salad, whole grain bread, grapes, apples, leftovers from Olive Garden, V8, milk, and a chocolate silk pie, ymmm!
• If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional, with whom would it be?
The first answer that came to mind was Sleeping Beauty, haha. But seriously, I’d like to not only frolic through the forest amongst friendly woodland creatures who are charmed by my beautiful singing voice, but to also have a handsome prince who’d slay a dragon in the course of a perilous quest to rescue me. J
• What was the last movie you went to see?
Australia. (Hugh Jackman- tanned and muscular, speaking with his native accent, and taming wild horses in a romantic epic - need I say more?)
• What is your favorite song?
I’m not sure if I have a favorite, but I looked in my iTunes for help. The song marked with the highest play count is “The Scientist” by Coldplay. Love it.
• If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?
Probably Telekinesis, the ability to control objects with my mind, because if I’m curled up on the couch with remote in hand and have ordered a pizza delivery, why not go all the way and be as lazy as possible? J Just sayin… it could come in handy.
• What is the one thing you are most proud of?
I have the best family and most amazing friends in the world and they always come first. I’m proud to be a big sister, caring daughter, and devoted friend. I try to fill those roles the best I can and truly be there for each person, which may be something simple but is incredibly rewarding.
• If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
I lived in Hawaii when I was little and love the idea of sunny beaches where I just let my hair go frizzy and wear flip flops all the time, but I’d also love an exciting city where I can delve in current music, fashion, and pop culture in general. So it’s a tossup!
• What is your best secret (that you're willing to share)?
When I get ready for my day, I like putting thought and detail into a “look” because I believe it’s the small subtleties that count. For example, putting on a sentimental piece of jewelry, or making sure to curl my lashes. It’s so simplistic, but doing so gives that extra oomph and can make someone feel that much more confident…. kind of like slipping on a Vintage Hem. J
• What is your favorite Vintage Hem?
Uh oh, I can only pick ONE? Well, my current fav I’d have to say is Effie’s Dessert from the spring collection. I like this one because it can give an outfit a sweet and almost old-fashioned look, yet make another outfit look more avant-garde and completely unique. As many people know, Vintage Hem is not only about lengthening a skirt because it’s a bit too short, it’s also a fashion statement, and I like to be a stand out. (and we totally think you do stand out...you're gorgeous and you have a light about you that radiates!!-we love you Heather!)
