Most interesting fashion moment/memory? I got stopped constantly at ACL for what I was wearing. Another time I was eating dinner with a friend and this lady at another table approached me and said she would pay for my meal if I tell her what I use for my hair.  I don’t use any product, it’s all natural. I just blow dry it. I’m pretty sure she got kind of annoyed but she still paid for my meal.
