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, dear reader, we're finding out. Each day, we hit the streets and talk to one person who catches our eye and makes us look twice. Today, we caught up with Julie Stancil, whose classic pairing of a white dress and black cardigan created a contrast that was both classic and deceptively simple. Find out how she does it after the jump. 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.
