    Can you introduce yourself and tell us a little bit more about what you do?
    My name's Yazmine and I'm a DJ and model from South Florida.

    Location: West Palm Beach, Florida. An hour north of Miami.

    Age: I’m 18 Years old.

    Sign: Capricorn :)

    Tell us one thing you've been extremely interested in lately.
    I’ve been really into Jazz/Old-School Hip Hop, also artists like Homeshake, and astrology.

    Who's your fashion icon?
    My fashion icon would have to be Julia Sarr Jamois. She’s the Fashion Editor of i-D and from her color schemes to her textures, she’s definitely someone I look up to in the fashion world. 

    Can you tell us the story about your favorite pair of jeans?
    One time I went to Goodwill with a friend and as usual I went on a denim spree. In a cluttered aisle filled with jeans, I found the most perfect Tommy Hilfiger jeans, with one whole back pocket the Tommy Hilfiger symbol, and parachute-like bottoms. When I finally got to the dressing room I started to get less hopeful of the pair fitting me because everything I tried on was either too big or too small. I left the Tommy’s for last and the Denim Gods blessed me with a perfect fit pair of jeans I am forever grateful for.

    What's your best memory while wearing them?
    When I wore them for a DJ set and I had the whole audience dancing for two entire hours. Definitely one of my happiest moments.

    Light, medium, or dark wash?
    Dark wash!

    What jeans did you wear in high school?
    Ugh, high school. Sadly Hollister was worn during my freshman year, but after that Goodwill entered my life and vintage denim has been my go-to ever since.

    What are your favorite denim moments in pop culture or history?
    Watching 90210 when I was little because of my older sister, and cousins.

    If your jeans could talk, what would they say about you?
    My jeans would mention how my wide hips hug its sides, and love how I put my outfits together.

    Where do you find the best denim?
    Thrift Store/BDG Denim.

    If you're an expert denim thrifter, any tips for finding a good pair of jeans?
    1. Don’t be impatient with finding the right pair.
    2. Try it on! (Most of my most fitted I’ve doubted prior to trying on.) 
    3. Seek a tailor if just a minor fix is necessary. 
    4. The perfect pair of denim jeans are somewhere in that store waiting for you.

    What current denim trend is your favorite?
    Numerous styles/washes of denim altogether and made into one piece.

    Would you rather be relegated to a life in bootcut jeans or a life in carpenter jeans?
    Parachute jeans!

    If your significant other wanted to wear a denim suit with you a la Britney and Justin, would you do it?
    That’s now a future goal of mine.
