Sidewalk Style: Cute and Crafty
We stop two boutique managers making the most of their favorite summer gear at the Crafty Bastards event Saturday.
Kat Hernandez (right in photo), 27, assistant manager at Current boutique
Cher Miller, 30, manager at Current
What they’re wearing:
Kat: Dress from Forever 21, vintage booties and sunglasses, and an Italian bag from her mom.
Cher: Silence & Noise dress, Gap bag, Ray Bans, and shoes from Current.
Tell me about your style.
Kat: “I like to wear black but punch it up with a really bright color that’s unexpected. And always heavy, tough accessories.”
Cher: “I run the gamut from goth to semi-hipster. I like prints, textures, colors. I have these goat-head stud earrings that I wear all of the time. This dress is one of my favorite things in my closet right now—I gotta wear it a couple of more times before it gets cold.”
Working together, do you find that you have similar tastes in terms of style?
Kat: “I think we’re very similar in that we’re a little rock ’n’ roll. It’s about the balance between masculine and feminine.”
Any wardrobe signatures?
Kat: “My motorcycle boots, hands down. I’ll wear them in 90-degree weather!”
Cher: “She has a pair of shoes for every day of the week—every day of the month!”
“I do my own hair. I like to air-dry it and use a little hairspray for texture. Like I had a good night in bed.”
Kat: “It’s not only an outfit, but it’s a head-to-toe look—you have to think about your hair, your makeup, accessories, bag, everything.”
I’ll always like the flowered-dress-with-boots combo. These outfits will continue to work into fall with tights and snug cardigans. Some great news for Current boutique fans: The second location opens November in Old Town!
