Concrete Runway

[whitespace] Kelly Defayette Civic Center

Words & Pictures by Thendara Kida

Name: Kelly Defayette

Age: 24

What do you do?: Sell my soul (a.k.a waitressing), student, artist and presently working on a Christmas-on-acid installation piece.

What are you wearing today?: Powder-blue dress is from an upstate New York thrift store, approximately $3, shortened from below knee level. Bright orange flip-flops on sale from the Eddie Bauer catalogue. Sunglasses are vintage, purchased for $10 at a county fair in upstate New York.

Who does your hair?: Julio at Oxenrose cuts it. I bleach it myself.

What magazines do you read?: The Face, Bitch, Paper, Colors.

Do you have a personal mantra?: Damn it, I will have credit, I will have credit. Or, I will become one with my cocktail tray (repeat as needed).

How do you feel about SF's fashion sense?: SF has almost no fashion sense. You look weird if you dress up for the day. Here no one knows the difference between lax, comfortable or wearing an entirely Gap-produced ensemble. There is no Bloomies here, and I think that is the problem; everybody's too Gap-casual or too vintage-casual.
