Little did we know that Cindy Chen's outfit told a story of extensive travel and an adventurous spirit. "I like a lot of layers and to mix and match," the 24-year-old Mount Vernon resident said. "I try not to be too premeditated." Chen's outfit was more like a collection of souvenirs from her travels than anything else. Her vintage shoes from DeBois Textiles and leggings from H&M were her only domestic pieces. Her Blue Denim jacket was purchased during a trip to Korea. Her shorts were purchased in Taiwan. Her Low Skies sweater was purchased in Hong Kong. Her backpack was from a street vendor in Taiwan. Her scarf was a gift and was purchased in Israel. "I do a lot of traveling," the research technician at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine said. "With the exception of the scarf, I've been to all the places I've shopped."
