My Style: Kristi Pinkham
Describe your personal style.
Quirky and bright with a touch of pizzazz.
What are you wearing today?
An old Boy Scout shirt found at a flea market in LA with a thrifted vintage cheerleader skirt and Lucchese cowgirl boots from Chuck’s Boots.
What is your favorite fashion era?
I love the ’60s. Fashion felt more fearless and fun—something we can all use a little bit more of in our lives.
Where do you go for great vintage finds in
Retro 101 and Vintage Haberdashery always have great selections. For me, vintage is all about the hunt, so estate sales are always an excellent source for one-of-a-kind treasures.
What runway trends are you loving right now?
Pattern and color blocking are huge trends for me right now. I also love anything embellished and sparkly.
Which items from your closet can you not live
Jewelry—the more the merrier!
What is your go-to piece?
My Rag & Bone heritage high-rise skinny jeans.
Which designers are you obsessed with?
Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu.
What is your biggest fashion pet peeve?
Rules. Who’s to say what colors to wear and when? Oh, and Uggs; I am not a fan.
Who is your style icon and how has he/she
influenced your personal style?
When I first heard of the Man Repeller blog, I didn’t really know what to expect; it seemed a little intense. But now I find myself looking at Leandra Medine’s site more and more to get inspiration and some laughs from her adventurous, effortless, funky approach to style. Her choices are always a great reminder that we should dress for ourselves and love what we wear.
What is the next piece you hope to add to your
Kate Spade has some pretty sweet book clutches I have had my eye on; the yellow Great Gatsby one is my favorite. But until then, Pinterest might have to help me figure out how to make one of my own to channel my inner bookworm.
