2. How long have you been a thrifter?
15 years plus!
3. How did you get into thrifting? Did someone inspire you?
I started thrifting when I was in middle school. I loved fashion but I also wanted to be unique
and create my own looks. Thrifting provided me with the freedom to experiment and be creative.
4. How often do you thrift?
5. What are some of your favorite Thrift Stores in your area?
Stella Dallas in Williamsburg, and L Train vintage.
6. What would you say to someone who wants to try thrifting but has no idea where to start?
Be open minded to the endless possibilities, but if you feel overwhelmed start by tackling one or two
sections of the store per trip (for example dresses or coats only).
Also, think outside the box and don’t be afraid of considering alternations to make a piece perfect for you
7. What items do you look for most when you thrift? Clothing, Accessories, Home Decor or a little bit of everything?
I love a good vintage blouse and sweater.. so mostly tops, but dresses and coats are a close runner up.
Of course there is always room for some jewelry!
8. Are there certain items you will not thrift? If so, what?
9. What are 3 words to describe your style?
Eclectic, androgynous, adventurous
10. Any fashion/style inspirations? Celeb or non-celeb?
Edie Segwick, Taylor Tomassi Hill, and Man Repeller.
11. What’s the biggest misconception, in your opinion, you think people have about thrifting?
That you will only find damaged, stained and old stuff nobody wants. So wrong
12. Anything else you’d like to share?
Just a tidbit about personal style in general. I am a strong believer in the force fashion and
style have to empower a person, whether it gives them the confidence they need to conquer
the world, or just to express who they are.
