I’ve asked my friend Ali Clark, who graduated from Boston University last year with a degree in Art History, to pick out several of her favorite outfits, and to take photographs with me as she discusses some of her thoughts on style. Read below to see some of what she has to say.
When I was (quite) younger in elementary school, I dressed to match my American Girl dolls, Kirsten and Felicity. Times have changed as I no longer imitate the colonial and pioneer era, but I still definitely appreciate historical garb. I suppose it is the art history major in me. I love Renaissance and Elizabethan portraits for the opulence and texture but I also love photographs from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s to see what folks were wearing.”
My caffeine level has a has a great degree of impact on how I dress in the morning. Comfort is king. I always like to pick outfits in which I know I can curl up and read a book while wearing or run to catch the bus if need be.”
