Where do you live?
DE: “Los Angeles.”
Where are your favorite places to shop?
DE: “Santee Alley (I love to spend HOURS there, they have so many weird and amazing things), The Goodwill Bins, and Dolls Kill.”
What brands are you loving right now?
DE: “Buffalo London and this weird brand called Hot & Delicious that seems to keep appearing in different places—they make a lot of shiny, PVC stuff—and Dolls Kill’s in-house labels.”
What are your go-to outfit essentials?
DE: “Shiny silver anything because it can match with everything and looks amazing under colored lights on stage!”
Tell us your style philosophy.
DE: “Efficiency is my guiding principle! Because I’m always traveling and I also don’t have a ton of space to store stuff at home, I like to focus on having some essential accessories (like black and silver bondage-style strappy belts and harnesses) that can be paired with any color or texture and can easily turn a day look into an evening one for going out or performing.”
