How would you describe your style?
Edgy girliness meets pop pin up with a dash of cute culture. My wardrobe mostly consists of bold jeweltones, leopard print, statement jewelry, unique bags or shoes, punky jackets, party dresses, bustier tops, cute accessories with animal faces or bows and lots ofgaudy glitter and rhinestones.
Main design influence?
I’m really inspired by pin up looks from 1940s and 50s, valley girls and punky looks from the 1980s and Tokyo street fashion. It’s a weird combo, but it feels really natural to me when I mix it all together. My favorite style muses are Dita Von Teese, Cyndi Lauper, Betsey Johnson and Katy Perry. The movie Earth Girls are Easy (1988) was a big fashion inspiration growing up too – its a great example of the kind of stuff that I love and Julie Brown looks fabulous in it.
Favorite place to shop?
Betsey Johnson for sure, sometimes Junkman’s Daughter, and Lizard Thicket when I’m in the suburbs seeing family. I like to do a lot of online shopping too… My favorite online stores are Tarina Tarantino, Zappos, Wheels & Dollbaby and Etsy.
