This is a new section where I will showcase Philly
"Girls About Town" who have a unique style and presence.
You have probably seen them around.
Me: How long have you been in Philly
DB: I was born in New Delhi India, and raised in Philadelphia proper.
Though I have lived elsewhere in this world,
I love this city. It’s beautiful, gnarly, and awesome.
Me: Describe your style
DB: Woodland, summer nights, witching hour, future bleak.
Some days dark elve, and other days a sweet little grandma
girl child. I love parasols, cloaks, vintage summer
dresses and lace up boots.
Me: What is your most treasured thrifted find?
DB: My most treasured finds are my junk jewelry collection,
pieces from the 20s-80s. Some may be older. I
have found these over the years at flea markets, antique
shops, and thrift stores. My favorite pieces are my collection
of butterfly broaches made of real butterfly wings. I love
them because they are beautiful yet slightly sinister.
Me: Where do you shop in Philly?
DB: Daffys & Ross are my favorite shops for new items.
You can find really amazing clothing and footwear.
Me: Do you have any style role models?
DB: Sharmila Tagore, RA Salavtore novels, French
New Wave. Tammi Terrell, Fairy tale illustrations
