Location: Brooke was braving the Black Friday crowds on Main Street in Northampton when we stopped her.

Roots: “I’m originally from Fort Lauderdale. I go to school in D.C., and we have a family farm house in Huntington.”

Occupation: “I’m a senior at GW (George Washington University); a political science major, minoring in Psychology and Sustainability.”

Fashion muse: “I like Florence, from Florence and the Machine. She wears a lot of Gucci runway items, which is cool.”

Style philosophy: “Eclectic. Sometimes more masculine — these pants are a bit more masculine for me — sometimes more feminine, depending on the vibe and the weather.”

The coat: “This is a Moncler coat, it’s a hand-me down from my mother.”

What’s in her Port bag?: “I got a very cute wool sweater I’m pretty excited about. It’s by Paloma Wool and has interesting designs with faces.”

Local aesthetic: “G.W. style is more designer based, a runway situation. Here, it’s more of a casual farm vibe.”

The dog: Arrow, a mini Aussie-Doodle
