"I never really knew anything about money. Other than having a lot of it."
Harper is Carly's best friend and roommate whom she met in college. She grew up as the child of a wealthy family. After her family lost all their money, she had difficulty adjusting to her new life. She got a minimum wage job as a barista at Skybucks Coffee Bar and worked there for four years, but later quit.
Harper's dreams of becoming a fashion stylist come true when she lands a job as a stylist for the singer Dutch. However, Harper later faces a difficult decision of whether to prioritize her career or follow her heart when she finds herself developing feelings for Dutch and learns that these feelings are mutual.
Harper is African-American. She has black braided hair, brown eyes and a dark skin color.
Harper is less anxious and worrisome than Carly. While she doesn't seem to have everything in order, she does deeply care about Carly and encourages her to always move forward in life. Even if she occasionally jokes around and sometimes makes witty remarks, she has a strong work ethic, especially when it comes to starting her own fashion career.
