“The pajamas were a no-brainer, there is nothing like a set of rainbow sweats, no? And the daisy hair pieces made me feel like a little kid.”
“Super reflective aviator sunglasses made me feel like an off-duty Gigi Hadid.”
“Since moving to New York, miniskirts have become this weirdly novel part of my wardrobe because I never got to wear them in San Francisco!”
“I was totally drawn to the silk bomber jacket, and I found out on the day of shooting that it was reversible! Result.”
“I chose pineapple boobs rendered on a pink bathing suit and offset by a pair of 70s style athletic shorts, confusingly coupled with gold loafers and metallic socks. If you can't beat 'em, confuse 'em - you know?”
What’s your role? I'm the site's founder but also have my hand in pretty much every department because I have attachment issues? My day-to-day runs a gamut. Some days I'm out all day at meetings, other days I'm here and focusing solely on business strategy, or editorial, or what our photos should look like. It's a pretty well-rounded job and sometimes makes me feel like a freelancer in the best way because I get to do so many things, but they're all for the betterment of one company.
What’s your favorite thing about the MR office? The people! We've assembled such a wonderful team who I believe really embody the ethos of Man Repeller - they're all kind and supportive of one another and smart-as-whips. Are whips actually smart?
What stories can your readers not get enough of? Pop culture, styling know-how and the introspective, think pieces do quite well for us.
What's one item of clothing you want to wear nonstop over the summer? WELL, if you have to know, there is this one pink metallic mini skirt now being sold at Topshop, which I would love to get my hands on...
Who's your summer style muse? Rita Hayworth lounging pool side in Palm Springs, or Salvador Dali on the Spanish Riviera
Do you plan outfits in advance or do it last minute in the morning? A combination. Thinking about outfits is a weird, soothing mechanism that I sometimes use to fall asleep, so invariably some good ideas come out of that, but for the most part, I do like to wing it. I think this is true of most people who feel comfortable defining themselves by their personal style.
What's the most useful styling tip you've learnt since working at Man Repeller? That you really, really do get to make - and break! - the rules. It's your world, everyone else is just living in it. I think this is true for each of us as contributing members of humanity.
