Ok, so I'm going out on a fashion limb, here's an interview with me by me (using the style questions that I've received this year from my friends, family, and students:). I hope you find it fun!
A: Yes, once every other blue moon. I have two pairs, Levis and a pair from Custo Barcelona (my faves). Blue jeans look good on others but they make me feel, ummm, er, blue. It's hard for me to find the perfect fit, wash, denim weight, length, comfort, etc. In my opinion, jeans are like boyfriends you have to keep trying them until you find the one you love. I've never been much of a dater.
Q: What's on trend for spring 2013?
A: Fashion for me is about fun, artful, quality pieces that can be kept for years. I enjoy trends from afar but I'm into unearthing pieces that fit into my style to create an overall look. I like to make my own trends -- I'll be wearing 50s inspired dresses and bold floral prints this spring.
Q: Describe your style.
A: I tend to mix vintage, vintage inspired, and modern garments with basics. I've always been on the conservitave side. I'm somewhere between a foxy Librarian and a quirky-nerdy teacher. Ha!
Q: Where do you shop?
A: Rarely in New York -- only because I like to save my money to shop when I travel!
Q: What's one accessory that you can't go without?
A: GLASSES -- I've been bespeckled since I was 6 years (love them love them love them) ohhh, EARRINGS too!
Q: What's the one thing you'll never wear?
A: A black coat. Black is super chic but New York City is a sea of black outerwear in the winter. I like to bring the color no mater the season. Right now I'm wearing a plaid jewel tone number from the 90s that I picked up from Miss Master's Closet.
Q: Did you make that?!
A: No (my response like 90% of the time). I'm drawn to wearing things that look like I made them. I love dresses, skirts and tops with a tactile quality. However, this spring/summer my response will change. I have a bunch of 'Lesley Ware' creations on my studio cutting table. Yes, yes, YES!
