Peeps on The Street: Gloria Holer in Cobble Hill

I always love it when I get to interview a "celebrity" ! Gloria Holer is the singer and occasionally the drummer for the punk band Hotter than a Crotch, which independent research confirms is, in fact, a real band. Today she is also rocking an unusual personal style, which is why I had to talk to her. Gloria's companion is a good sport about not being asked to participate, explaining that when he got dressed this morning in jeans and a button down shirt, he was prepared for the reality that he might not be interviewed about fashion, and he was ok with that. 

Where did you get what you are wearing today?
Top: this is really a scarf and was purchased in an Indian store in Seattle.
Vest: a gift from her mother, from H&M
Skirt: Forever 21
Shoes: Thrifted, then stowed away so they wouldn't get ruined, and then subsequently forgotten. One year and a half later, after ruining all of her other shoes, Gloria found these in her closet and now the sandals get to enjoy their moment in the sun.
Glasses: vintage frames

Is there any particular item you are shopping for right now?
Gloria shops on impulse, but reveals plans to start a new trend of wearing multiple vests at one time, so its safe to assume that she will be needing more of those. 

What are your favorite stores?
Thrift stores, or any store that carries a lot of colorful items. Gloria says she is both picky and cheap, personality traits which heavily influence her shopping decisions.

Can you describe your personal style?
