We at FASHOM interviewed Fashom user Heather Leigh. Heather is a firm believer in being a fashionista should not be expensive. Read all about Heather’s style below.
Fashom- Who or what inspires your wardrobe choices?
Heather- I’m inspired by 80s and 90s pop culture. Many musicians and television shows during that time really pushed the boundaries of fashion. I love 80s British post-punk. You can see a nod to retro style in my personal style aesthetic. I’m also enamored with New York and London street style right now. It’s inspired me to start a local street style movement
Fashom- How would you define your everyday style?
Heather- My style changes with my mood. I have to adapt my style to whatever activity is on my work schedule for the day. Most of the time, I’m a little boho. Sometimes,I’m a little punk. Occasionally, I’m fashion forward. I don’t have a specific go-to style. I don’t fit a label, so I don’t label my style either. That’s what makes fashion fun. I can make it what I want it to be.
Fashom- What is your favorite thing about being a part of the Fashom Family?
Heather-I enjoy interacting with like-minded individuals. There are many people who love clothes. It’s another thing altogether to love fashion. The Fashom Family understands fashion. I’m a firm believer that fashion is art, and art should be accessible to the masses. Fashom makes fashion accessible to all people regardless of body type or background. I like that it’s very inclusive. I joined for that reason.
Fashom- What is the item in your closet that you wear the most often?
Heather- Probably leggings. I wish I had a more exciting answer. There’s a versatility and chic-ness to leggings when styled properly. I try to balance style with comfort. I also own a safari jacket that makes regular appearances in my photos.

Fashom- What is your favorite trend of this year?
Heather- That’s a tough one. I’m not a fan of the athleisure movement, but I love the idea of sneakers with dresses. I love lace bralettes with muscle tees. I’m love the mixes of patterns I’m seeing on the runway.
Fashom- What do you do for a living?
Heather- I am a communication instructor for a university and advisor to the student radio station. I teach media writing and broadcasting courses.
Fashom- If you could only wear one outfit for an entire month what would it be and why?
Heather- I love my tulle skirt. I’d pair with a light sweater and stilettos. Oh! And I’d work a scarf in there somehow. I’d make it work. I have a scarf addiction, which is strange for someone who lives in a city with no formal cold seasons. I think it’s a classic yet chic look. Every adult should wear a tutu. It’s fun.
Fashom- Did you make a new year’s resolution and what was it?
Heather- I don’t make resolutions per se. I’m trying to learn to balance and declutter my life. I did declutter my closet. I’m still working on the balance part.
