Hey gals + Happy FRYday!
We made it through another week, which means I have a new girl crush to introduce you to today! This week I am crushing on [another] color chaser- Rosie Clayton! She is a creative based out of Chicago that loves photography, color, cocktails and traveling!
Check Rosie's colorful Instagram out here, and read my interview with her below!
I'm a fan of crispy, thin cut fries dipped in aioli or mayo. The first time I tried mayonnaise on my french fries was in 1999 when my Austrian friend and his mother encouraged me to give it a try; I thought it sounded like the weirdest thing but it was love at first taste and I've never gone back to ketchup! I also love a good McDonald's french fry- drive through and eat 'em while their hot and salty! Yum... I want some RIGHT.NOW!!
2. Roller blades or Roller Skates?
Roller Skates all the way! White with white laces and pink wheels, please. Classic.
3. What are your favorite magazines?
I love US weekly for catching up on celebrity gossip, Elle and Vogue for a fashion fix, and Travel + Leisure for vacation ideas- I absolutely love to travel!
4. LA or New York?
I lived in upstate New York for a short time when I was at Cornell University and lived in the West Village while I worked at the corporate offices at J.Crew in the city. I'd have to say New York all the way- I love the energy I feel every time I'm there. There is such a vibrant social scene; people move at a fast pace at work and at know how to enjoy themselves outside the office. There's also a great European influence, you can sit at a cafe or a street corner and just people watch. And do I need to mention Central Park (and Bryant Park) in the Fall?! Amazing!!
5. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was younger, I wanted to be a photographer for National Geographic. The perfect job would be able to combine my love of photography with travel to foreign countries. There are so many beautiful places and cultures to see!
6. If you could only wear clothes from one decade the rest of your life, which decade would that be?
This is a tough question- I love the roaring 20s but I'd have to say the clothing of the Mid 50s-mid 60s is my favorite period. Classic, flattering silhouettes in the most beautiful colors and hand crafted with love. A lot of my wardrobe is filled with vintage pieces from this era.
7. Would you rather only be able to whisper at a level that nearly none can hear, or always sound like you just suck in helium?
Oooh. I guess I'd rather only be able to whisper. That way, I'd know that people were truly tuning in to what I had to say!
