How I Met Your Style

Shortly after moving into our new Williamsburg apartment, Louise and I were featured in this ultra dope blog, How I Met Your Style. We answered some questions, gave them a tour of our hood, let them peek into our closets, and ended the day with a feast at Vanessa's Dumplings! Overall a fun fun time. Read my Q&A below, and then check out more photos of our digs over at How I Met Your Style.


Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m a DJ and a fashion publicist in Brooklyn, by way of Los Angeles.

How’d you develop your personal style/become interested in fashion?

I’ve always been a bit of a tomboy, and I think that my personal style has always been derivative of that. Five years ago I was heavily into sneakers and streetwear. Over time my style has softened and prepped up a bit. I’ve traded in a lot of my kicks for heels, but it is still heavily influenced by menswear. After a huge closet haul two years ago, I became more discerning about timelessness and quality, and adopted the mantra “buy less, buy better.” I threw out a bunch of cheapy, ephemerally trendy pieces, and started to build a wardrobe of solid classics. I think I’m almost there!

Latest inspiration?

New York City. I moved here a month ago, and it has challenged me (in a fun way!) to be creative with the pieces I have. Layering, packing a handbag efficiently, heavy fabrics, and snow shoes are all things that I now think about when getting dressed in the morning. I never had to think about things like thinsulate and Uniqlo Heattech before moving here. Because of the climate, I’ll find myself combining my existing pieces in new ways. Finding ways to look cute without freezing my toes off has inspired me to look at my wardrobe in a different way. I kind of love it!

Favorite stores/brands/companies?

Stores: La Garconne, Opening Ceremony, Creatures of Comfort, Madewell, J. Crew, Honey in the Rough, Mohawk General Store, Ten Over Six, Assembly

Brands/Companies: Proenza Schouler, Intelligentsia coffee, Something Else, Rachel Comey, Gabriela Artigas

What else do you enjoy besides fashion?

Music music music. And I also enjoy putzing around my kitchen for 10 minutes looking for something to cook, then going out to eat. Making dinner reservations is one of my greatest life skills. Fromage and charcuterie boards, I also enjoy.

What are your next steps? (next projects?)

I want to focus on producing music. I also want to learn how to cook and not be such a hazard in the kitchen. Come over next time, and I’ll know how to make you an edible casserole or something!
