Angela Hardison always has design in mind when it comes to what she creates -- and what she wears.

Hardison's a graphic designer (a founding member of SeeSaw Designs), and blogger, who spends her days working on freelance gigs and sharing her current inspirations. 

"I'm a graphic designer, and a big part of that is I really care about how things look," Hardison says. "Style is one of the easiest ways to express my creativity. It's like getting to paint a new canvas every day."

What are you wearing?
Vintage silk top, Anthropologie skirt, Seychelles shoes, jewelry from local designer Ayofemi, bag by Pilcro & the Letterpress (from Anthropologie - which I maybe bought because I'm also a letterpress printer and loved the brand name).

Can you tell us a little bit about your style?
My overall style is classic with a little bit of quirk. But I adore 60s style and have a great collection of vintage dresses and skirts.

What are some of your favorite places to shop at?
Goodwill, and the typical places: Anthropologie, Gap, Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters.

What was the last clothing purchase you made?
A couple loose tops at H&M, to fit my new and growing baby bump!

 What are you favorite trends for fall? I have a really strong love for color, but this season I'm enjoying neutrals like cream and black, with a little punch of color or metallic. Also I'm pattern crazy, so I hope the pattern mixing trend never dies. What item of clothing do you covet at the moment? Pretty much anything and everything from Rachel Comey or Lina Rennell (best prints/patterns ever). 

Give us a childhood memory of you and clothing.
I've always been particular about what I'm wearing. There were so many days from elementary school when I'd be late to catch the bus because I was trying on different outfits and deciding what to wear. Come to think of it, not much has changed...

What do you like to accessorize with?
I'm pretty simple when it comes to accessories, but I do love adding color with earrings, necklaces and belts.

Where would you love to have a shopping spree? I think I'd be pretty set with an unlimited budget at Barney's or Neiman Marcus ;)
