Very influenced by both Vintage and Japanese fashion. I die over cute animal themed things and can’t get enough of cinched waisted, full skirted dresses.
What is your favourite item from your wardrobe?
Hmm that is difficult. Currently I’m quite proud of the first dress I made, so that’s a favourite, but if I had to pick an item that I actually purchased I think it would have to be the off-white antique lace overlay I got for Easter this year off of Etsy.
Nancy Drew is a big one. I’ve wanted to be her ever since I was a little girl, and that got me big into 30’s- 50’s dresses as an adolescent. I would always get excited if I saw something in a store that looked like a ‘nancy drew dress’ or ‘classy sleuth shoes.’
Your apartment looks gorgeous, where do you find all of your trinkets?
Thanks! I love treasure hunting….other people might call it junk hunting, but I’ve always loved exploring antique stores, thrift stores, flea markets, garage sales, you name it. As a five year old I loved collecting tiny glass figurines and putting them in shadow boxes….and not much has changed in that department.
If it’s summertime and the rain is warm, then I’d be outside feeling the fat drops on my hands and taking in the musty smell of wet earth. I’d also probably be trying to film close ups of wet things while making Ryan hold an umbrella over my camera.
Why have you both decided to move to Manhattan?
Ryan is going to Columbia Law School, starting in August, and I’ll be working and Graduate School shopping during the first year, and hopefully I’ll be attending a school with a Masters and PHD program in critical film studies eventually.
That’s my Ryan! We’ve been married a little over a year, we dated for about a year before that, and we were good friends for a year leading up to that point.
Okay, I’m a bit of a wimp, so I think first off the weather would have to be really nice- like not above 80 degrees and no humidity. That being said, I’m a sucker for the ocean and beach boardwalks, so I think a really great day would be to spent the heat of the day out on a boat somewhere with crystal clear water and a vivid, colourful coral reef where we could swim and snorkel and explore.
Well, since we just made a big move to a much smaller place, I’m pretty much starting from scratch again. I left all my favourite trinkets and decorations as my parents’ house for safe-keeping, and our apartment is unfurnished so I’m looking for everything!
-So many! The current top three that come to mind are Late Spring, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Pee Wee’s Big Adventure
