When you write a letter to the editor of the New York Times or clip a picture from Vogue it's rare that anything comes of it. But, blogging is different and special because of things like this. It was weird to be on the other side of an interview, especially with someone who made me just starstruck. I'm a bit of an awkward duck (a product of being so skinny growing up) - so these pictures are a true testament to her talent!

When we talked about my personal style I told her There is nothing rock-and-roll or avant-garde about the way I dress. I have a casual, earthy lean to my preppy style and I've never been able to pull off wearing much makeup or anything grunge revival. Because of this I'm rarely on the forefront of the trend watch, but I do incorporate fresh pops that are consistent with the way I like to style myself. It helps having hair like I do - I'm always with my biggest, permanent and most signature accessory.

"I'm a simple dresser, I don't like my clothes to compete with my curly hair. It's big enough as it is."
