Kelsey, 25

“Growing up I was really into 80’s movies. It’s something my mom and I bonded over. I feel like that reflects in almost all of my outfits with at least one article I’m wearing. I feel most comfortable in trousers and high laced boots, and jackets/coats. Some days I feel my strongly femme side, and others I look like the boy you crushed on in high school. Both are equally me.“

“Outfits that are funny really inspire me. I’m definitely not above embarrassing myself for a lolz-y look. It’s also important that it lets me feel pretty and lets me move the way I want to. I like to wear clothes that other people didn’t want – one queen’s trash is another queen’s treasure. Now I’m wearing a skirt and a Mickey Mouse shirt that I found in thrift stores, some Mardi Gras beads I found on the street in New Orleans, my favorite sunglasses, and my sturdy “atomic pink” sneakers.”

Haley, 27

“I’m wearing a high-waisted 40s long skirt, a burgundy turtleneck, vintage German shoes, Chinese pajamas, a Naga ceremonial necklace, a Turkish carpet bag; and day old Halloween make-up. My style is inspired by old Hollywood, mid-century explorers, old hippies of Mendocino, and my husband. I love contrasting big patterns, fabrics that are damaged and decayed, and anything that makes me feel magical.”

Calvin, 15

“I am inspired by older English 20th century clothing, but also by my own eccentricity: I have always chosen to wear more formal and/or distinct attire. I do like wearing sweater vests and scarves, with Liberty pattern shirts especially. I also sometimes wear a long flowing tunic (a kamiz in fact) with a scarf for a more casual outfit.”

Kendra, 28

“I’m wearing high top Converse shoes, BDG velvet pants, a Jung Maven men’s tee, a vintage tracksuit jacket, and Madewell earrings. I usually decide to wear a particular item of clothing and build my outfit off of that. I like a combination of old and new, lots of color and the idea of classic femininity.”
