Out-of-the-Closet w/ Kim C.

As a student and aspiring museum curator, Kim has her own perfectly-curated wardrobe that gives a gentle nod to the nostalgic. Her growing Rachel Comey collection and vintage frocks and accessories reflect a girlish whimsy that does not stray too far from her current style inspiration, Alexa Chung.

Kim's eye for design has extended into her living space as well. Her retro apartment has tons of character and the sunny hues make it a cheery place to hang out. See photos of her adorable home here!

Style Q & A:

Q: Please list 3 words that describe you.
A: silly, absurd, crystal

Q: What designer inspires you the most and why?
A: that's a hard question. As of lately, the Australian designers Lover...they seem to do everything right. I really admire Karen Walker because of her whimsical take on classics. I'm also really into the Australian designer Jade Sarita Arnott right now...her stuff is so minimal...and her color combinations are so beautiful. I like how she pairs pieces like high-waisted peach jeans with a peach oxford blouse. And of course, my favorite will always be ChloƩ.

Q: How would you describe your style?
A: minimal, classic, but a little rough around the edges.

Q: Whose style do you admire at the moment and why?
A: Alexa Chung! She puts everything together so perfectly.

Q: Where do you like to shop locally? Are there any stores you wish were local (include name and location)?
A: Not so much local. My favorite store right now is Jumelle in Brooklyn...they do a good job of carrying every designer I drool over. Lyell in New York is also a favorite...it's so girly and dainty I could die.
