Desira Pesta is a fashion designer, costume creator, and actress who lives in Brooklyn. Ironically, she says the ensemble she is rocking on this particular day is not one of her best; she makes most of her own clothes but I happened to catch her on laundry day...and we all know what that means in terms of outfit selection. I think she looks adorable anyway, so we decided to have a little chat.
Where did you get what you are wearing today?
Overalls: American Apparel
T-shirt: The Gap
Is there any particular item you are shopping for right now?
Desira wants a great fitting coat thats flattering, while still having enough coverage to be warm. She intends to design one and make it herself.
What are your favorite stores?
Oak NYC, Thrift and vintage stores. Since Desira makes most of her own clothes, she doesn't shop as much as most people.
Can you describe your personal style?
Tomboyish with elements of femininity.
