Street Style: Worldly Style
Allison Peck looks East for fashion inspiration.
Shopping is like hunting for Allison Peck, a 22-year-old waitress living in Allston. She browses the internet for inspiration and scours open markets in Asia for deals and steals. Her mix of high-end and thrift makes for a young, ultra hip look.
When I saw her near Government Center, Peck was wearing Cynthia Rowley sunglasses, a Forever 21 sweatshirt, denim shorts from a Korean market, foottraffic.com tights, and shoes from a indie Rhode Island shop.
Do you have any stories about the pieces you’re wearing?
Well, I got this bag from the flagship Uniqlo in Shanghai … These shorts are kind of cool. At Korean street markets, you can bargain for your clothes and everything is in random sizes, and you can’t try anything on, so you just have to sort of guess.
How do you find inspiration?
I follow a lot of fashion tumblrs, a lot of really random people.
