Street Fashion: Julie Stancil on Market Street

Name: Julie Stancil Age: 32 Occupation: Public defender

Westword: Where do you get your fashion inspiration? Julie Stancil: I guess I look at magazines, coworkers, movies. [Gestures at the man she's with] He actually picked out what I'm wearing now.

It's a pretty stark color contrast in that ensemble. Is that a style trick you employ often? JS: Well, really this was just kind of a last-minute thing. It's what was available.

Where do you like to shop? JS: I really like Nordstrom -- that's my favorite. Or Nordstrom Rack. A little TJ Maxx here and there. I live up in the Highlands, so I get a lot of these little dresses at little boutiques on 32nd.

What's your favorite article of clothing that you own? JS: Well, I have a favorite brown pinstripe suit. But what I wear every day, what really makes me happy, are these chocolate brown "moose pants" that literally have, like, mooses and cherries on them. I love them.
