Style Soundbites

“I’ve always wanted a leather jacket, and, about a year ago, my mom went to Argentina with some of her friends to celebrate her birthday, so she brought the jacket back for me from Argentina. I originally wanted a jacket that was brown, and when I got it at first I really didn’t like it because: I don’t know, camel? I don’t like camel as much as I thought I would. But then I put it on, and I was like, ‘Oh, this fits so well,’ and I’ve kind of grown to like the color and the cut a lot better. I got the sweater at the Goodwill here. I got this scarf when I was in New Orleans.”

“I like to play with color, and I like everything to be very cohesive. I don’t like having too many patterns at a time. I really admire people who wear, like, a lot of patterns and a lot of things at one time, but I like to wear stuff that’s really clean. A lot of clothing I wear is a lot about the lines.”

“I get a lot of my inspiration from, I think, just people I see walking around. I’ve amassed this really large amount of purple dresses: I don’t know how. There are certain colors that I’ve become very at home with. But I like to look at people and see what they’re wearing.”

“I’ve always been into older-style clothing, more vintage stuff. People always think that old people are really unstylish, but I think it’s because they get distracted by the fact that the old people are old, and maybe not in, like, the shape that everybody thinks is the perfect shape. They get distracted by the icon of beauty in the person rather than, like, the way that an old person looks. An old person looks old, it’s just the way it is. You shouldn’t get distracted about that while you’re looking at what they’re wearing because what they’re wearing could be really cool.”
