Sarah and a few friends came down to Southern California from up north in Redding and decided to stop by the beach to see the sea lions. The Hong Kong-born student was wearing a bright blue floral dress that she had just purchased from Forever 21 when Go Girl saw her enjoying the sunset view.

“We came out for a conference and we’ve never been to San Diego. We thought we’d come out and look at the sea lions, and they’re really fun,” says Sarah, who bought her dress because she “thought this was a cool color.” When it comes to drawing fashion inspiration, she told Go Girl, “I look at magazines and stuff, but mostly I just go out and see what I like and what looks good on me and I buy it.”
