Old clothes, new tricks
• Who she is: Sherri Bell
• What she’s wearing: Bright-orange vintage coat with white piping (“it’s ‘something borrowed,'” according to Sherri); a green sweater she reconstructed; a pink tube top worn as a corset over skinny jeans; platform cockroach stompers (“I’ve had these for ages”) and a chain necklace she made.
• Why we love it: Bold colors, geometric shapes and bright-hued hair all add to Sherri’s unique style. A budding designer, she has an eye for detail and knows that unorthodox uses for clothing (a tube top to cinch the waist) give an outfit fresh appeal.
