A little late on that August train. But oh well!
This month’s About Face model is a different type of #ADDISONgirl that you’re used to seeing on the blog, but she isn’t a new face here. You may remember Nicole Doyle from a photo shoot our friend Freddy of BluePerk. But now she brings her rocker down to earth edge to our summer to fall set.
Nicole is a 20 year old New York Native (really Islip Terrace in Long Island). She’s currently studying fashion merchandising at Empire State College (online for now, so she can still work full-time) and has that SoCal instinct of longboarding through the city. Nicole is also a philanthropist in her spare time and tries to bring awareness to autism. She tells us that her brother has autism and has his own Facebook page that Nicole runs for him. She also volunteers for Autism Speaks.
Her biggest interest is music. Mostly alternative music. Her iPhone is currently playing Sleeping with Sirens, old Taking Back Sunday (the only kind you should like), and A Day to Remember. She was supposed to go to Warped Tour this year, but she was called into work. The life of a model. We laughed about how she didn’t miss much, since it was basically the same headliners as 4 years ago. The last show Nicole went to was Pierce the Veil at Irving Plaza. But now she is excited to see Chiodos, now that the original line up is in place (seriously people need to stop rearranging their bands, stick to the good stuff!).
We’re all foodies at ADDISON. And nothing is different with Nicole. We all love going to Dumbo and Williamsburg to eat. But even the best restaurants in the city wouldn’t be the last meal on Death Row for Nicole. Her meal would be fries. She just loves them. From anywhere(her last fries that she had were from Silver Spurs). “It’s the best!” She says with a glint in her eyes. And our reaction is just gawking at her and her flat stomach. Oh how we’d kill for that. But maybe it’s her strength training. When she came to our office, she was just coming back from seeing her trainer after a leg workout.
Of course she likes to shop. Her must have accessories are earrings and bracelets. But her last purchase were “vintage” t-shirts from H&M. She’s not much for make up, especially when eyeshadows match someone’s outfit (it’s a big pet peeve for her).
