She's Not a Square

Last week we welcomed TALONALIA  to the Cocolah family and here ladies and gents is the mastermind behind the scenes working her claws to the bone to bring you these tasty treats*.

You might remember Alicia from my previous hate rant complaining on how she owns the Acne Shoes of my dreams. I've since forgiven her...obviously.

Check her out over at INNY VINNY where she's a blogging fool...I mean you could enter her um contest to win a super dope necklace from her other collection DRKGMTRY. But um...don't bother cus I've already decided I'm the winner. YUP! YAY ME!

Miss Thing Alicia Nassardeen

# What is the first thing you think about before getting dressed? 

"I hope I can find a pair of jeans I didn't wear yesterday"

# What's your hustle? 
Aside from my 9 to 5, I slang brass bird claws and other assorted things.  Sometimes it's jewelry, sometimes it's clothing, sometimes it's vintage.   

# What is your design process?   

Most of the time, I'll think of something, quick sketch it to make sure it's technically possible for me to execute, and then try to knock it out.  If I can't get it the way I want it, I put it on pause and move on to the next idea.   I have steno pads and post-its everywhere to keep track.  That system isn't working too well. 

# What is your fashion pet peeve? 

Socks with sandals.  I've never understood it and never will. 
# Share one of your fashion secrets?  

Black skinny jeans make you 3 inches taller even if you don't have on heels.  Don't tell anyone. 
# Name a recent fashion inspiration. 

Viktor and Rolf's F/W 10 show.  I'm all over convertible clothing. 
# What trend do you see in the future for underground fashion? 

Pocket squares.  I've never seen it before, and I really want to start seeing it.  Really. 
# What trend do you wish would just die, die, die? 

The aforementioned socks with sandals.  Spring is coming and I'm going to be assaulted with them, I just know it. 
# Who is your fashion muse? 

Zoe Kravitz because she wears whatever the hell she wants and always looks completely comfortable and unforced.  Lady Fag because she is incredibly ballsy.  She'll wear a shower curtain over a bathing suit with Margiela boots and would probably sock you if you said something about it.    
# What would you choose: a personal tailor or unlimited shoes?  

Unlimited shoes, no question.  I have no use for a tailor as someone who wears oversized shirts, belts over boxy dresses and jeans. 

*No animals were harmed in the making of this product.
