Style Soundbites

“I found these shoes in a really small thrift store in Portland. But not like a hipster thrift store, just a store with used stuff. The Velcro symbolizes, you know, a return to childhood innocence and a rejection of straight-laced mainstream society.”

“The pants didn’t come like this; I would never buy into the mass commercialization and cheapening of art . . . I just found some white pants in a paper bag on the sidewalk and then my friend Emma applied the paint while we were camping at Burning Man. We carried all the paint supplies out, of course.”

“I got this bracelet in a street market while I was visiting Thailand. It was the only souvenir I brought back. People were like, ‘You can’t even tell it’s from Thailand,’ but I was like, ‘Carved elephants and Buddha statues are so overdone.’ Plus, this way I can wear it as a daily reminder that I am a global citizen.”
