Style Soundbites

“The shoes are from Gorilla USA; I got them on a steep men’s fashion discount website, so I’ve been enjoying this pair of Chukkas. The pants are Levi’s raw denim; I got them over the summer, purely for the novelty of wearing some different type of fabric. Raw is obviously denim, but you have to care for it differently. I didn’t really care for it properly; I washed it after a couple months––there were a lot of grass stains––and they shrunk a lot. So now they’ve turned permanently into rolled-up capris.”

“The shirt, I don’t know the brand, but it’s just a henley staple. The necklace is a silver amulet, which has a snowflake, a salmon, a river on the bottom and a bear claw on the back, with a spiral as its paw. I got this in Sun Valley from an artisan silver worker, several years ago. This is the only jewelry I wear, just this necklace. It has a lot of significance to me, because it brings me back to a time when I was in Sun Valley with my family.”

“The scarf was my dad’s. He got it with his mother at a department store in New York, 50 years ago. Every time I go home, I end up taking back another article of his clothing that he never wears anymore.”

“I turn putting together outfits into a very social process. That’s one of my favorite things about fashion; I get to collaborate with different people about my outfits. I talk to my housemates a lot. Being color blind, one of the reasons I originally got into style was to heighten my awareness of colors and what colors go well together.”
