Some people just stand out. Whether their style is cutting-edge, quirky or just well-executed, they make you want to know: How do they do it? Because we work for you, we're finding out. Each day, we'll hit the streets and talk to one person who catches our eye and makes us look twice. Today, we caught up with Brooke Sandoval, who, as it happens, is a designer who runs Otter Milk, her own fashion blog. Downtown, she was rocking a red raincoat complete with an umbrella and fedora that came together for a look something like a sexy Charlie Chaplin. Get her story after the jump.

Name: Brooke Sandoval Occupation: Design student
Westword: Where do you get your fashion inspiration? Brooke Sandoval: My style is vintage all the way. And French Vogue, I guess. It really depends, but really I'm strictly vintage. I sometimes make my own stuff, too. This dress used to be a long-sleeve, full-length dress, and I modified it.
WW: Where do you like to shop? BS: Well, I just moved here from LA, and there, I basically had two places: Wasteland and Marc Jacobs, I'd spend all my money there. I guess here it'd be Nordstrom. I spend a ton of money there.
WW: What's your favorite article of clothing you own? BS: I'd have to say this slip I have from the '40s, kind of a mauve color. It's kind of ripped, but it's beautiful.
