Browsing and adopting interviews from Closet Visit for inspiration and motivation.
1.Describe your personal style.
boyish and feminine; simple with something offbeat. i always try and keep these in balance. always a tad messy— i don’t trust someone too put together. a nice dress requires wonky hair.
2. Who are your favorite designers?
not that I wear any of them, but ACNE, Givenchy, Margiela, Celine, Rick Owens, CDG, Wang.
3.What are your favorite places to shop?
Goodwill and Savers. And cheap thrill shoes from Zara always. To dream and browse: creatures of comfort in LA, acrimony in SF, totokaelo in seattle.
4. Who are your style icons?
Anna Karina, John Waters, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Diane Keaton, Patti Smith, Rei Kawakubo, David Bowie, John and Yoko, Jane Min, Dogtown and Z Boys, the children in uniforms in Central Park.
5. Are there any key pieces you find yourself wearing constantly?
A simple black american apparel mumu, that I’ve been transitioning with the weather by adding tights/boots or flats.
6. What is your most recent purchase?
A silver beaded necklace from Savers. It’s really big and fake-metal looking but I like the statement it makes w/out being flashy and a million colors.
7.Do you have any stories about amazing deals you’ve gotten on awesome pieces?
A $7 pair of tacky Marc Jacobs pumps from the Goodwill will forever be my treasure. Recently, a $9 DVF black dress.

A good deal isn’t a deal if you don’t need it/think you’ll wear it.
9.What’s the best thing about your job?
