#MyStyleSTL: Casey Miller, Co-Owner of Cherokee Street's Mud House and Dead Wax Records
Describe your personal style. Gwyneth Paltrow once described her apartment as “rough luxe.” So that, maybe—with a heavy lean on “rough.”
What’s your most recent fashion obsession? Impossibly tall shoes. Next fashion obsession: neck brace and a wrist splint.
What runway trends are you loving right now? I have no idea. But if street style is any indication, I should’ve kept my sunflower dresses and Docs.
What are your top five essential clothing staples? My husband’s hats, the denim jacket my mom wishes I would throw away, vintage whatever and patterned tights (any time of year). Does eyeliner count?
What is the one item from your closet that you can’t live without? That damn skeleton. It’s a good reminder to always be better and good and kind.
What is your go-to piece? It’s a no-fuss, hands-free, double-sided leather holster/saddlebag purse situation from AllSaints. I won’t lose it if I can’t set it down!
Which designers are you obsessed with? St. Louis is so lucky to have SKIF International and Michael Drummond—my local lovies. And anything OAK makes is truly “badazz.”
Where do you shop in STL? Retro 101/Cherry Bomb Vintage and Ruth’s Vintage Clothing on Cherokee. And I thrift like it’s my job.
What is your biggest fashion pet peeve? Underdressing for winter weather. Girls, there MUST be a coat that goes with that teeny bodycon dress.
