What’s this, a new blog feature?? YEP! Every week Amil Niazi styles the Robber mannequins and then takes you on a sartorial spirit quest, finding the stories buried in the silk and wool. Each week, check out her modern fairytales and then vote for your favourite!
Meet Carol. Yeah, Carol. And before you’re all, “Amil, you’re nuts, Carols are just Patricia Heaton characters or HR ladies at my work. They aren’t real” – relax. This is Carol’s year. Does it get a bit chilly at the library where Carol works? Yes. Does she respond by draping a sloppy piece of wool around her tiny shoulders? No. Carol is that tempest in a teacup you never saw coming. Carol gets it done. She outdrank you last night and she’ll outwork you today. She might look uptight but her dick jokes make her boyfriend blush.
Channel your inner Carol in this Zea dress by Wood Wood ($365), Steven Alan Azteca cardigan ($289), and Laura Lombardi Marion necklace ($95).
Spirit Animal: Joyce Carol Oates
Power Song: Joni Mitchell’s Carey
Let’s be real, you envy this girl, but you don’t really like her. No one is that sweet. No one’s hair is really that shiny. Ugh is she eating leftover quail for lunch? What is she?! She’s a Beth, you guys and she’s the woman you want to wake up as after another lazy day where you bought new underwear instead of doing laundry. Bring a little Beth into your life and your cuticles will shine. Bring a lot of Beth into your life and boom! promotion. Not too much Beth though or you’ll be telling people how to raise their kids and ask them if they really need another glass of Pinot.
Add just enough Beth with this Rittenhouse silk backwards shirt ($329), Sessun Albertus pants ($175), and Iacoli & McAllister copper necklace ($110).
Spirit Animal: Ayn Rand’s tailor
Power song: The Pastels – I’m Alright With You
