Hot on the heels of our first Style Gallery Star Sighting, we have a spiffy second helping of sartorial ingenuity via Anna from Madison, WI! Her parents’ Jamaican roots and her passions for music and retro gaming are big influences on her style, which this legal careerist-turned-academic describes as “eclectic and emotionally driven”. Below, we’re sharing the deets behind the shots, but you should also give a look and listen to her blog, Melodic, Thrifty, & Chic.
“With some bloggers, you can immediately identify their ‘style’. They have a palpable modus operandi that is just inescapable,” says Anna. “I don’t find that with my style, though. It’s almost as if I don’t belong anywhere or in any particular category.”
“My lifelong passion is music. It has been with me since I was a child,” explains Anna. “I grew up in a Jamaican household, and I was raised on classic reggae from the 40s, 50s and 60s. There is so much soul, so much heart, happiness, and suffering in that music. It’s painfully beautiful.”
“I’m stuck in the past and I’m totally OK with that state of affairs,” admits Anna. “I still play old NES and SNES RPGs, and some classic DOS games (thanks to DOS BOX!). I’m a huge D&D nerd.”
“I clerked for an administrative law judge for about three years before I decided that I wanted to do more traveling now rather than later. So, I’m currently pursuing a career in academia. My goal is to become a professor of law at a foreign university.”
Get in on the fashion fun by shooting and sharing your next ensemble! And stay tuned, because our next Style Gallery Star Sighting is right around the corner!
