Persons of Interest, Storytellers  /   /  By Roxanne Fequiere
Occupation:

Denim Manager, Reliquary

*What she’s wearing:

Vintage chore coat, vintage Moroccan tunic, Acne boots

Hometown:

San Diego, CA and Grundy, VA

Describe your style:

Sexy on the bottom, frumpy on top.

How do you translate your look from the workplace to the weekend?

I'm fortunate to work in a casual work environment where my work clothes are my weekend clothes.

What's in your makeup bag?

Benetint, Benefit mascara, MAC Ruby Woo lipstick, Sachajuan Spray Wax to make my hair extra big, and OLO Dark Wave perfume.

Latest obsession:

Textiles, vintage Flax, Middle Eastern jewelry, and Robert Clergerie shoes.

Your saved eBay search words:

Flax dress, R.M. Williams women’s shoes, No. 6 clogs, Frye women’s Chelsea boot, Robert Clergerie, Victorian mourning jewelry

Who is your style icon?

Patti Smith. I do work with some fashionable ladies that sometimes have to help dress me, does that count?

Next on your must-buy list:

Officine Creative’s wrap-around ankle boot.

What’s at the top of your wish list?

The RTH Market Tote, Polly Wales gold and sapphire stud earrings, and a pop-top Westfalia (if insurance, gas, and general upkeep were no object either).

What’s one piece you plan to keep forever?

My denim jacket, my Discharge t-shirt, my magical Lou Zeldis lapis ring, and all the antique gold jewelry that I’ve acquired from Reliquary.

What can’t you see yourself wearing, ever?

UGG boots and the wedge sneaker.

Favorite eBay find ever:

A latch hook rug with Garfield on it.

You collect…

Records and books, two of the heaviest things to collect.

Dream getaway:

Anywhere where I can drink a beer and work on my suntan, and not have to move. Preferably in another country. A cabana boy wouldn’t hurt either.

Song most played on your iPod:

Too embarrassing to say. My iPod serves so many emotional purposes, it’s like my diary.

Favorite city to shop in:

Los Angeles (at the Rose Bowl Flea Market) and New York.
