Pants: By J-Lo for Kohl’s. “I always dress based on my mood. When people ask me, ‘What should I wear?’ I always ask, ‘What do you feel?’”
Top: “I try to wear what works for my body. I will be riding the crop wave forever. I also love floral patterns, even if it looks a little old-ladyish. I dress kind of retro. I always have. My grandma saved a lot of her clothes from when she was young, and my mom’s house is like a giant closet that my friends and I always ‘shop’ from. That’s why my friends like me.”
Necklace: “This is probably my most cherished possession. My grandma’s first husband gave it to her before he went to war. He died in Korea. She passed away recently.”
Clutch: Saturday by Kate Spade from T.J.Maxx. “It was thirty bucks. Anyone with money can look fashionable. I try to put outfits on my blog [ohmyglob.com] that involve a deal somehow.”
Ring: “My boyfriend bought this for me in Italy. It looks like a gold turd but in a nice way. I thought that was kind of its charm.”
Earrings: From Eclectiques Antiques Mall in Clintonville. “I love that little area. We go shopping there often. I think people overlook the antique mall to find clothes because for the good stuff you really have to dig.”
Bracelets: “I got the timepiece at Comfest. Who knows where the rest are from? A lot of my crap is just a mystery.”
Shoes: From Marshalls. “I used to be all heels all the time but I broke my ankle a couple years ago, walking in my apartment in tennis shoes of all things.”
Lipstick: Palm Beach by Trish McEvoy.
