"What are you wearing for fall? Oversized, designer handbags and venti coffees."
"Marc Jacobs is crazy and looks like a circuit queen."
"Wham City- GET IT TOGETHER (Exception: Jana Hunter, you always look cute...)"
Joe Conner: It depends on the day. If I want to be preppy (I) work it... the next day it's boho-chic. Who cares?
F: What is your inspiration?
JC: Right now I look at the west coast, at the families that always look hot...all three Ronsons and the Olsons. Oh, and fur.
F: Tell me about your new hair color. It’s Chestnut and so short.
JC: It was bleached to hell for years and years... and it started breaking off. (laughs)
F: Yeah, I heard that someone in the gaybourhood said that you lost some of your fabulousness when you went brown.
JC: Bitches are always jelly no matter what you do. Get over it.
JC: I want to give shout outs to Shelley Hannon @ Studio 1612. She always looks gorgeous and she always makes your hair look sex.
Shelley is the blond in the pic (but she's a brunette now!)
F: What are you wearing for fall?
JC: Flannel in every color. I'm referencing early 90s grunge in an updated more glam way.
F: How do you plan to transition your look for winter?
JC: Layers. Fox fur coat. Knee high boots. People are haters, but always Uggs, they’re warm, so get over it… p.s. Never Uggs at night. Sick!
F: What designer is missing the mark this season?
JC: Marc Jacobs. He’s crazy and looks like a circuit queen.
F: Ok, before we lose peoples' attention let's name drop. Who is really dressing well locally?
JC: Natasha Perekalsky. Girl is always classy.
F: So, what's the worst look that you have seen around lately?
JC: Oh God, EVERYTHING thrift store, so gross. Wham City, get it together (Exception: Jana Hunter, you always look cute and I love your music! http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=7761366 )
Better than Wham City
F: What was the last event where you thought Baltimore people pulled out the fashion stops?
JC: The City Paper's Best of Baltimore Party. Emily Rabbit was so cute cute... and Karma Ward, of course.
This ma always makes my bling jelly. -F
F: Now let's be nice. What hair do you love on a girl/boy?
JC: I love Katrina Ford’s Hair . Girls: long and messy. Call me sentimental, but I love a Balti on a boy. Faux hawks and faux mullets are so sick.
It's the Balti, lover.
F: We're getting near the end. What local store do you frequent most, and what is their hottest item/trend?
JC: Shine Collective (www.shopshinecollective.com.) Love their jewelry...the mirrored Kate Moss necklace... and my Sir Alistair Rai scarf (Joe has it in blue and is wearing it in his painting.)
F: If someone wanted to update their look, where would you tell them to turn?
JC: Um, get a fashionable friend and read How to Dress Sex every week!
F: Fill in the blank: ____________is so hot right now she/he cannot stop wearing ____________ and is always vacationing in ______________.
JC: I am so hot right now I can't stop wearing flannel and leggings and I'm always vacationinge in the caribbean. How do you think I get so tan?
Coming Next Week (10/07/08): Candid photos of you! Get ready to wear your sunglasses at night. Joe and I will be writing HTDS together and we are going to spotlight people we see out on Friday night. We are looking for sunglasses. Bring 'em and we might take your picture.
Be prepared, Joe is about to get really mean, but don’t forget… you will get his HTDS seal of approval if you show up looking sex!
Fitz and Joe
p.s. We'd love to hear what you have to say about who we hit or who we missed. Have an idea about dressing sex? We'd love to hear, lover.
