How would you describe your personal style? I wore a lot of hand-me-downs as a kid, so I was always finding ways to mix things up and make old clothes feel new again. That’s sort of how I dress now. I like a little juxtaposition.

Where you like to shop: Thrifting is time-consuming but worth it for the bragging rights. I love wearing something with a story.

The accessory or piece of clothing you couldn’t live without: I have a little stack of skinny gold rings that I never take off; they give me something to fidget with. 

Your style icons: James Dean, Harriet the Spy, Diane Keaton, Carrie Bradshaw, Patti Smith, Jenna Lyons, the Olsens, Soozie McBroom.

In constant pursuit of: The perfect white T-shirt.

Never getting rid of: A pair of Louis Vuitton sandals that I found in the basement of a thrift store in Paris. 

Closet MVP: An old military jacket that I’m convinced goes with everything. 

When in doubt: Leopard print goes with everything.
