This girl was featured on Refinery 29 today and has also been on Garance Dore's blog a few times. I love her style and thought she deserved a thread here!
It Girl 101: "I'm from Austin, TX, originally, and I love it. Personally I'm a bit of a tomboy, I love bugs and space and science, but style-wise I can get pretty frilly. I studied art history and writing at NYU, and now I'm the beauty assistant at Teen Vogue, which is so much fun!"
Secret weapon: "Bright lipstick for sure, I love Mandarina by Milani, and Chanel's Super. I always have on crazy nail polish, glitter is my favorite. I have this great vintage French military jacket that I got my freshman year at NYU because I was obsessed with Lindsay Weir in Freaks & Geeks, and I wear it all the time. I thought I lost it once at a party and freaked out and made all my friends do a search with their cell-phones as flash lights on the floor. Oops! I also have these great Chanel booties that I got for Christmas at like 99% off in Austin. I feel very fancy when I wear them. I guess, I really haven't taken off my Alexander Wang leather jacket since I got it. I also have a Paul & Joe Sister wool jacket with metal sequins around the edge that I love! I love sparkly things in moderation, and pastels, and girly, floaty fabrics, but I tend to end up dressing like a tomboy in high heels.
What are your five style staples?
1. "Black cropped-leg pants." 2. "Platform wedges/crazy shoes in general." 3. "Cozy shrunken plain hoodies and slouchy button-downs." 4. "Jackets. I have way too many jackets and coats." 5. "Anything camel colored."
Decade of choice: "The '70s à la Lauren Hutton."
Bag of the moment: "I got a great caramel-colored vintage Coach little bitty bag on eBay that I love, but I've been using this BOYY bag, the Frank, for years and years. It's just the perfect bag! Mine's about to fall apart, I really, really need a new one, but I still love it."
What's your theme song: "I don't know about theme song, but whenever I hear 'I Want You Back' by the Jackson 5 it makes me so happy."
cute - she does have great style and she comes across as very fresh. I like that she said she got her Chanel booties on super sale - it gets a bit tiring after awhile when everyone is like 'oh I got these from a friend who happens to be the designer' etc. etc.
eta: I've also moved this thread from star style and renamed it as she works for Teen Vogue
