Q: What’s your all-time favorite book – the one you go back to again and again?
I guess I would have to say Tropic of Cancer. More than any other book, that one changed me. Miller’s words were honest and fearless, even when he was writing about a hole in the wall… I spent a good two years reading everything he wrote and regularly go back to Henry Miller’s books, Tropic of Cancer specifically.
Q: How would you describe your sense of style?
Style. Hmmm. The more storied the better? I wear what I love. I wear what strikes me as fun and interesting, unusual, one-of-a-kind. I wear what makes me happy. I shop at consignment stores 98% of the time, because that’s where the stories live. I want to wear stories on my body. It helps me navigate my own.
