Label yourself: "Casual, but polished"
What are you into?
I like to dress nice, but still kind of casual. Like, I like to wear jeans all the time, but I like to have nice jeans - my favorites are A.P.C., Joe's Jeans, Paper Denim. I don't like anything loud, normally. I like a lot of classic looks and a lot of blues, blacks, grays.
So is this a pretty typical outfit for you?
Yeah. For work, I can dress pretty casual. I like to go out after work, so something that can seamlessly take me from work to going out, I like a lot.
Where do you shop most?
Milk Bar. Their shirts, they'll buy four, and it's kind of nice because I like to have stuff that you don't see anybody else wearing. And I like Rag-O-Rama a lot, just to pick up good stuff for not a lot of money.
What influences your style?
I think a lot of it comes from going out and seeing stuff. I could look in magazines and online, but I can't really make a decision if I like it until I see it on someone.
What places do you hang out?
All over the Short North - Bodega, Park Street Tavern, Press Grill, Surly Girl, Betty's.
What do you refuse to wear?
I kinda hate super-loud or all-over prints. Like streetwear stuff. I have a lot of respect for other styles, but it's just not for me.
