Hello everyone, I hope that you are having a lovely day!
I'm so delighted to introduce you my friend Silvia - she really just is the bees' knees. I have loved getting to know her since she transferred to school last semester! And she just has the cutest style - she and I have gone thrifting/yard saleing multiple times already this semester and we always have a blast.
Enjoy getting to know Ms. Silvia!
Major: German and International Studies
Hobbies: I love to read and write poetry, bake, and complain about politics.
Favorite quote: I don't have one! But here's a snippet of a Richard Siken poem, Snow and Dirty Rain: “Here I am leaving you clues. I am singing now while Rome burns. We are all just trying to be holy. My applejack, my silent night, just mash your lips against me. We are all going forward. None of us are going back."
Favorite Movie: The Princess Bride
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Hopefully a big city, Berlin or NYC, with people I love. In the best case scenario, there will also be kittens.
Describe your style: A risque grandmother.
Favorite places to shop: Thrift stores and other people's closets (especially my sister's).
Favorite thrift store finds: All my favorite old-lady shoes from thrift stores - including the ones I'm wearing in the shoot!
Biggest Fashion Mistake: I really liked fedoras for a while there but never had the guts to wear them in public so I don't think there are pictures. Bullet dodged!
Whose style do you most admire?
Miss Laura Whitman! (Laura's note: Aww, shucks!) Because she is always so gorgeous and feminine and freakin' thrifty. Her clothes are really fun and make me want to take more risks and wear more skirts.
Favorite memory involving Laura?
She talked me into buying a big poofy retro dress that is probably going to be my wedding gown; also gushing over Pyrex!
Shirt: American Apparel
Thanks Silvia for spending such a lovely day with me getting these shots and answering all these questions. You are such a doll!
