    If you've been in D.C. for much time at all, then you know we're lucky to live in a wildly diverse metropolis — people from all over the world call our fair city home, whether it's just for a short stint with an embassy or a long-term gig with an NGO.

The full-time student (and freelance stylist) welcomed us into her adorable Northwest D.C. digs, where we admired her DIY skills and affinity for pre-loved baubles. Click through to see four of her favorite looks and get the dish from this round-the-world transplant.
