“I’m on my way to Walgreens on my lunch break. I moved here at the end of November from New Orleans when I evacuated from Hurricane Ida and stayed after I got a job at IQTalent Partners. Before that I lived in NYC — Astoria/Bushwick. I got the dress on Poshmark. It’s by White House Black Market. Jacket is Vince Camuto. Jewel is vintage. Shoes Timberland.”

“I’m from Franklin, but I’m studying film in London at the University of Westminster. I’ve worked on a BBC documentary. I just went to the Frist Art Museum with my parents to see the Medieval Bologna manuscripts exhibit and now we’re heading to a Beatles symphonic concert at the Schermerhorn!”

“I’m visiting from Chicago for the weekend. I’m a painter and possibly doing a project downtown. And we’re meeting up with friends. A buddy of mine found [my coat] and bought it. He’s tiny but he felt that someone had to have it, so he gave it to me. [This is] a friend’s camera. I just started. I’ve shot seven or eight rolls and developed four so far.”

On her style inspiration: “What a child thinks a rich lady looks like or a celebrity looks like in a cartoon. I just love being overstated. I buy vintage. It started when we didn’t have too much money growing up, and then I realized it was way better.”
