“I love finding the girl on the street whose hair is dyed bright pink, orange and blue, who’s maybe wearing a one-of-a-kind safety-pin-embellished denim jacket paired with a designer item she saved up for, like a Marc Jacobs skirt or Isabel Marant heels.

It’s not about having a credit card with no limit—it’s about choosing a few pieces to splurge on every season, mixing them with a little bit of high street, some vintage, maybe a thing or two borrowed from your mom or boyfriend. When it’s thrown together, it’s amazing.”—
