“Where do you think you get your fashion flair from?”

“The past. Looking back and saying, ‘Oh, we don’t dress like that anymore. Why did we give it up?’ It’s complicated to do so. I mean, it’s a lot of work to get up and make yourself wear a tie and button up a shirt, when you could just throw on a t-shirt and a pair of jeans, and we’re out and ready to go with a pair of flip-flops.

Socks, suspenders, belts, gloves, hat, sunglasses. And how they all sort of correlate to each other, I suppose…I work for a non-profit, which I think is great because it allows me to dress the way that I’d like to. I don’t think I’d be able to get away with dressing like this in Corporate America. They’d say, ‘No, your pants have to come all the way down.’ There’s no real dress code and it allows for creative freedom of expression with dressing…”
