"We were always talking about our obsession with overalls so to think of our conversations over Nana teas back then and to see her beautiful line now is so exciting."

“These overalls are from Danielle Bernstein’s [aka WeWoreWhat] new line of only overalls. How genius! She comes to the restaurant all the time and we also met when we opened. We were always talking about our obsession with overalls so to think of our conversations over Nana teas back then and to see her beautiful line now is so exciting.

“I just love mixing these fun plaid ruffled pants with anything. Especially the shiny gold booties. Dries is one of my favorite designers as well. I remember when Leandra Medine [aka ManRepeller] wore a Dries dress years ago at the restaurant and I had a crush…it was the first time I heard about them. She actually taught me lots of Fashion 101 so thankful for her studies back when we met!”

"Luckily these sneaks go with everything!"

“I actually wear these everyday. I had a foot problem for a couple of years and wasn’t able to walk properly and after recovery discovered that this is the only shoe that doesn’t cause the pain to come back. So luckily these sneaks go with everything and I am very thankful for them.”
