FAVOURITE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS TO FOLLOW?
So hard to narrow it down but these are my top 5 – @knighttcat for daily inspo, @asaprocky because he’s got his squares down pact, @4thandbleeker and @sarahfuckingsnyder for being insta style queens and @nakedvice because of all the reasons above!
FAVOURITE PLACE TO SHOP?
Rose Bowl Flea Market!
FAVOURITE TRAVEL DESTINATION?
Definitely Japan. Food, nightlife, art, culture and the best shopping in the world!
TOP OF YOUR TRAVEL WISHLIST?
Part time model and social media manager for I.AM.GIA the label.
TOP OF YOUR WISHLIST?
Something I will never be able to afford – that red Vetements x Canada goose parka.
I moved around a lot growing up, so it’s hard to pinpoint a “hometown,” but I lived in the south in Florida and Georgia before moving up to NYC for college!
DESCRIBE YOUR JOB ROLE I’m the Fashion Market Editor at Refinery29, so I oversee all the shopping-focused content on the site.I like to joke and tell people I basically online shop for a living. It’s kind of true!
ADVICE YOU WOULD TELL YOUR 15 YEAR OLD SELF? Don’t worry — everything will fall into place even more perfectly than you could ever predict or imagine.
FAVORITE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS TO FOLLOW? Too many to count! Somehow I follow about 2,500 people on Instagram, which is kind of insane, admittedly. I just love getting inspiration and ideas for work from it, so I follow every fashion person imaginable (and some meme accounts, too!).
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT ITEMS IN YOUR BAG?
Minty gum, NARS concealer, and of course, my phone.
DREAM HOLIDAY DESTINAITION? I’m dying to go to Japan – even though it’s not a typical “vacation” destination.
YOUR GO TO BRANDS? I’m moving more and more toward shopping mostly vintage and indie brands (which I write about on Refinery29 all the time!), but am still totally guilty of a Zara haul every dow and again. Recently, I love The Break Vintage, Aritzia, and House of Sunny.
FAVORITE NAKEDVICE PIECE? I love the pisces because it’s minimal and versatile but never boring – it’s totally my style.
HOW DID YOU GET WHERE YOU ARE TODAY? After years working in art direction and design for fashion brands in London, NYC and here in Melbourne I decided to do a post-grad in Visual Arts having always had a keen interest in drawing and painting. Before long it was all-consuming and I now do what I love full time.
BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED? Don’t live your life waiting for the weekends to roll around – find your passion, exactly what it is you love to do, and it will never feel like work.
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT ITEMS IN YOUR BAG? My Sun Buddies sunglasses, my lip balm and a pencil.
STYLE ICONS? Kirsten Owen in the 90’s, the Olsen Twins and Winona Ryder in Reality Bites.
GO TO OUTFIT? Always, always a black dress.. my current favourite is a long and oversized matte black silk slip that’s on high rotation this Summer.
If you are from Melbourne there is no doubt you would follow @givemethathing. Alex and Jayme have been showing us how to dress effortlessly cool for years. Their minimalist style with that touch of edge has had us following them religiously since day dot. We were lucky enough to chat to Alex. Her personal account is just as good as her blog. If you are not already this little pocket rocket is one to follow.
MOST VISITED PLACE IN MELBOURNE:
I spend so much time in the city running errands so probably the emporium Melbourne!Everything is there and it’s such a good place to shop, plus the food court is insane.
ITEM AT THE TOP OF YOUR WISHLIST: Faux Snake skin boots
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT ITEMS IN YOUR BAG: Nars lipstick in gypsy, carmex, Aesop hand cream, my Iphone and hair oil for when I’m having a crazy hair day.
FAVOURITE PIECE FROM OUR NEW COLLECTION: The chain black – obsessed with chain bags at the moment and the size is so perfect !
