Name: Jenny Bersinic
Hometown: Stoney Creek, Ontario

What is your one back to school fashion essential item: An oversized dress shirt! It’s comfortable enough to wear all day long, but gives you a fashion forward look that can carry you through to the evening.

Favourite store to shop in your hometown: Good old Value Village. Like they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. My favourite t-shirt cost only $1.50 and it was practically brand new.
