Bohemian Rhapsody

Julia Robinson

• Who she is: Julia Robinson

• What she’s wearing: Rust-colored embroidered vintage coat from Untidy Museum in Durham, N.C., oversized shades from “some discount store for like $3,” and teal satin sequin-appliqued shoes from another Durham shop.

• Why we love it: Julia’s eclectic style has it all — hippie sensibility, layered practicality, and world-beat chic. Not afraid to mix textures, cultures and colors, Julia makes Boho look good.
