Tell me about this outfit.
It’s very springlike. The sleeves are part of a tulle top I’m wearing underneath the dress that I call my “jellyfish” top. The dress itself was handmade for me from vintage bedsheets. I paired it with my favorite Hello Kitty tights, Fluevog shoes, and thrifted earrings. My glasses are prescription, and the necklace I’m wearing is a collection of hand-drawn outfits I’ve worn—it was actually made by the same girl who made my dress!
How would you describe your style?
Bold prints, colors, and textures; very eclectic, sometimes childlike. I like to say “sustainable maximalist” because a lot of what I purchase is secondhand from local thrift stores or reworked pieces that have been turned into something new, like the bedsheets from my dress.
Do you have a favorite piece?
I love my Troll bolo tie, and I have matching Troll earrings as well. I love dressing in a way that makes me feel very nostalgic; I used to collect Trolls when I was younger, and the feeling I get when I wear something like that makes me happy.
How did you arrive at your style?
I’ve always loved dressing myself up, but I got more into this specific look through thrifting—finding pieces that were made long ago, and being able to wear them now, has inspired me a lot. Being in a pandemic has also affected me. At first, I would just wear pajamas or sweatpants every day, and that was a little depressing, so I started dressing in whatever makes me happy. I like to ignore any kind of fashion rules and just have fun with it because it brings me joy, and I feel like, given the situation we’re in now, anything that sparks a bit of joy is a good thing.
