How would you describe your style?
A soft drink with bitters. Optional: A shot of whiskey.
French new wave, Winona Ryder, ’90s Calvin Klein, children’s books, nostalgia, nature, the military, unsuspecting locals, friends, family, things I see that resonate. It feels deep to me.
How does living in Halifax affect your fashion choices?
I have a parrot shirt that has a Bluenose pin on it. Also, I’m pretty moody which must have something to do with growing up in a place with lots of wind and water—I think my style reflects that.
Name a current trend that you just can’t get on board with?
I have and never will be OK with pre-torn jeans—the lack of authenticity just rips me to the core...and it’s getting more extreme! Can I just say that I love the stretch ankle boot look right now? Women’s ankles have never looked so good in the winter.
