You can thank Annie Georgia Greenberg for introducing you to the of exciting world of hair oils, helping you pack for Coachella, and guiding you to the best margarita in the LES. As Refinery29‘s New York Editor, she’s the girl responsible for keeping our fashion and pop culture radar set to cool- which is only one of the reasons we love her. She’s also insanely down-to-earth, and has quickly made a name for herself as an It Girl in the whirlwind that is the NY fashion scene. Having studied creative writing for poetry at Barnard College, she’s also a bona fide smarty-pants. Between her fashion savvy and witty R29 writings, it’s really no wonder she’s on our potential BFF list right beside JLaw and the Man Repeller. As documented by the below photos, Annie has always been on the cutting edge of fashion. Not one to shy away from bold fashion choices, she took styling cues from Blossom, and even perfected the nautical trend long before it was mainstream. We’re fans of all of her many looks, and could not be happier to bring you her curated collection of stellar NT finds.
1. “I was born in the summer so I think that’s why I love a good two-piece outfit, be it a bikini (like this figure-flattering diaper two-for-one) or presently, a high-waisted skirt and bustier top.”
2. ”Oh Mr. Wilson!!! For a good few months, which is an eternity when you’re five, I really thought I was Dennis The Menace, except with longer hair and a younger next-door neighbor. That summer, I didn’t take off these overalls (or, as evidence would show, bother to put on a shirt). Not pictured: The slingshot in my back pocket… seriously.”
3. ”Bucket. Hat. Crushed. Velvet. Buh-bye.”
4. “My history with full-on ‘outfits’ can be clearly traced to this very moment. It wasn’t halloween and it’s unclear whether or not I was close to a shore, but either way, I was going for an overstated, nautical look and nothing, least of all my hat-defying afro, was going to stop me.”
5. “A drop-waist dress, frilly socks, and a tousled ’do? Sounds like something I’d buy off the shelves now (thanks, Ma!). I like this fashion moment because it dictates my love of the mix: A little feminine and a little tomboy-ish.”
6. “Ohh early ’90s, how I loved, thee. At this point, Sambas were fully attached to my feet, Umbros were my short-choice dujor, and, what? You don’t match your T-shirts to your birthday cakes?”
