There’s the little black dress and then there’s your perfect little black dress. For Effie it’s a custom NOT by jenny lai pillow case dress that’s simply flattering in the front with a surprise opening in the back. She’s wearing it with a Givenchy birds of paradise scarf (on her head), Yves Saint Laurent platform pumps, and a Givenchy bag.
And this is the cross body Givenchy bag that I almost got last year to use as a camera bag during fashion week but decided for that it wasn’t big enough. Looking at it now though, I kind of wish I did! Since by now you know this girl loves fashion...here are a few of her other favorite things!
Food: Afternoon tea because it’s cute and delicious!
Drink: Can’t go wrong with water.
Book: Vogue, baby!
Recent song or album: No Doubt “Settle Down”.
Artist: Keith Haring.
NYC spots: coffee at Ground Support in Soho and walking around town, and sitting along the waterfront in Long Island City while the sun goes down.
LA spots: Brunch at Gjelina, followed by coffee at Intelligentsia — It’s kind of a tradition my best friend and I have when I’m in LA working with PNKYSWR.
NYC spot for creative inspiration: Something about riding the metro makes me write songs!
Vacation/getaway spot: I’m currently in love with London. I tend to get away from the city only to go to another city.
Indulgence: getting custom NOT by Jenny Lai pieces made on a whim.
Fashion designer: Rick Owens and Alber Elbaz.
Article of clothing: Rick Owens silk hooded jacket from SS ’10. I literally had to hunt it down.
Go-to cosmetic: YSL Rouge Voluptè No. 11. It matches my hair and lasts all day!
Fave thing about being in PNKYSWR: Seeing people sing and dance to our songs when we play shows!
Historical time period that you never experienced (and why): The future (not really historical, I know), because I’m all about looking ahead, and that means never hanging onto the past or dwelling on anything for too long. Time only ticks forward, and so should you!
