The Lumineers’ Neyla Visits the Denver ModCloth IRL

Denver, Colorado happens to be the current stop on our ModCloth IRL tour, but it’s also home to folk-rock favorites The Lumineers. Their Americana-flavored songwriting has topped charts and received nominations for numerous major music awards over the past few years. Right before heading to Europe with a busy tour itinerary, Denver native and Lumineers’ cellist/vocalist Neyla Pekarek was kind enough to come to the special preview event of the ModCloth IRL pop-up shop on August 11th.

While there, she tried on a few of our favorite fashions and told us all about her hometown and her onstage style:

What do you think makes Denver a great fit for ModCloth?
I think Denver is a perfect fit for ModCloth! This city has absolutely exploded in the last few years, providing its residents with many fun places to eat, drink, and be merry — and with that comes the need for fun clothes to wear to these places! Denver is an incredibly friendly city — never pretentious, and I think ModCloth embodies that as well. We also get four distinct seasons, so we can really take advantage of ModCloth’s year-round adorable looks.

Describe your signature on-stage style. How does ModCloth’s aesthetic play into it?
I like to look like myself when I’m on stage, and I like my clothes to enhance what is already uniquely “me.” Something I feel confident and comfortable in to put my best self in front of a crowd. I always feel classic, fancy, and put together in a ModCloth look.

Do you have one “good luck charm” or sentimental clothing item that must come on tour with you wherever you go?
I have a pet bunny rabbit, Barb, who I miss dearly while I’m on tour, so I carry a stuffed animal version of Barb with me to remind me of her when I’m on the road.

What’s one uncommonly known or surprising thing about Denver you’d like the rest of the ModCloth community to know? 
Well, Colorado has been called home by a multitude of historically badass women such as Molly Brown, Madeleine Albright, Judy Collins, and one I have taken particular interest in, “Rattlesnake Kate.” She was a pioneer woman notorious for an encounter in 1925 with a rattlesnake migration, that in order to protect herself and her baby, resulted in her clobbering 140 snakes, and then making a fashionable flapper dress from the snake skins! I’m currently working on a concept album about her and the many amazing tales of her life. Perhaps ModCloth will need a few more snake-themed pieces in their line soon (faux snake skin, of course. No snake clobbering necessary in the making of this clothing!).
