Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you based? How do you spend your day?

I am 30 years old currently residing in Greenville, South Carolina with a plan to move to Brooklyn late spring/early summer of next year. I’ve been in Greenville almost 4 years, and before that, I had an assortment of odd jobs ranging from chainsawing invasive plant species in Utah, to organic vegetable gardening in Oregon, to working at a food recovery nonprofit in Colorado. My passion is sustainability and is the driving force behind me buying and selling second hand clothing full-time. I love starting my days with estate sales, which there seem to be no shortage of down here in the South. If I’m not thrifting/estate sale hunting, I am hitting up a local coffee shop, enjoying a waterfall hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains, exploring the best vegan meals around with my partner, or traveling and doing all of these same things in a different city.

How did you hear about Noihsaf/when did you become part of the community?

I became part of the community back in February 2023 after stumbling upon the Noihsaf Instagram account, and shortly after creating an account on the website. The marketing first caught my attention and led me to dig into the company. After reading about the values and learning about the community, I was hooked.

How would you describe your personal style? Do you have any style inspirations that you return to?

It’s hard to sum up my personal style in a couple sentences because it tends to be all over the place and ever changing. I am a Gemini so I like to have a finger in every pie, so to speak. I am very much attracted to vintage, mainly ranging from 60’s-90’s. My décor tends to be 60’s/70’s era pieces with bright, bold colors and lots of natural fibers like rattan and wood, whereas my clothes are more inspired by the 90’s – modern. I am in the process of transitioning my closet from fast fashion clothes I bought in college, to more intentional, quality, and timelesspieces. One place I turn for inspiration is the Instagram account @watchingnewyork where a photographer captures everyday fashion on the streets of New York. I find endless inspo from one of the most creative and fashionable cities in the world.

Do you have any designers/brands that you’re especially into these days?

Mason Martin Margiela (now Maison Margiela), going through his 90’s catalog has been a treat. I love the deconstructiveness, creativity, and unconventional approach he took when it came to making clothes. I also love the clothes 3 Women Co is creating from vintage textiles like old grain and rice sacks. Jo & June is a vintage and sustainability shop in Tulsa, and I am always delighted to see their curated weekly clothing drops on Instagram.

What trend are you currently loving, or what trend would you like to see?

This trend has been around for a while, but I love slip dresses being worn out and about instead of keeping them for the bedroom or unseen under layers of clothes. They encapsulate femininity like no other garment, they are super versatile, and the fact that unique, vintage ones in great condition are so abundant make them even more exciting. I have plenty for sale in my shop. I am also loving the cargo pant/utility wear. I have a pair of vintage military wool cargo pants I recently picked up from an estate sale in Denver that I am absolutely in love with.
