Interview with Lexycmb
I think Lexy has awesome style and I love her tattoos so I interviewed her :)
Here it is:
Give a quick intro of yourself
Well, my name is Lexy, I’ve been lexycmb since myspace in 6th grade. I’m a recent college graduate and a self proclaimedmed donut queen. I’ve lived in Boston for almost five years now, but I’m originally from a small town in central mass. Wanna know something weird, I’ve never eaten a hamburger.
What makes you “different”?
Since I was young, I haven’t been afraid to wear what I like, even if other people don’t like it. I hate pants. You can catch me in a skirt or a dress all through out the winter. I like to be comfortable, for the most part tight fitting clothes are out of the question. I also, never want to look like I tried hard to put an outfit together, most of the time it takes me five minutes to get dressed, and usually my outfits reflect that :)
Describe your style.
Lately, everything I’ve worn has looked like 80’s beach bum. Every morning I cut off the bottom half of my shirt and allow my hair to be a mess. I’ve been wearing a lot of bright colors and thrifted clothes! Even though my outfits are simple my tattoos always add something.
Who is your favorite designer or brand?
Right now I’m obsessing over “Glitters for dinner” all of their pieces are to die for.
Who is your biggest fashion inspiration?
One of my friends, that I met while working at American Apparel has always been an inspiration to me, her name is Madena. She was always wearing the most perfect and simple outfits, she inspired me to try a lot more black and white basics in my closet. Other than that, I try to draw inspiration from all my friends and put my spin on their style.
What piece in your closet could you not live without?
One of my roommates got me a gold “Lexycmb” nameplate necklace for Christmas. I wear it everyday, it was the best present I’ve ever recieved. When people ask me what it means I just laugh and say “oh it’s my internet name” their faces are always priceless.
What would you say your fashion philosophy is? (what fashion means to you)
Fashion means being yourself, and expressing it through what you wear. It means you care about what you put on enough to make it an art form.
Describe your style with two words
cropped and cute
What is your number one fashion advice?
WEAR WHAT YOU LIKE, just because you may not be a 6 foot tall super model doesn’t mean you can’t wear anything! Don’t get hung up on sizes and take advantage of your body’s shape!
What do you think is the most important thing in ones appearance for example; shoes, hair, clothes, handbag, attitude, etc.
I think accesories rule the world. For me my tattoos, and hair are my main accessories. These are all things that set me apart from the person I’m standing next too. Two people could be wearing the same exact thing, but look completely different based on how they accessorized!
Editor at a fashion magazine in New York City :)
A never ending trip around Europe???
Most importantly a three week trip to Spain, Greece, and Australia!
Where is your ideal place to live if you could only choose one place to live for the rest of your life?
I would kill to live in London! I went for a week in March and I fell in love!
If money wasn’t a problem what would you do for a job?
I recently started an instagram shop where I buy and sell clothes, and it’s has been so much fun! I wish I could have a small coffee shop/clothing shop under my house where I worked everyday.
What could you not live without?
SO CORNY, I never thought I would publicly admit this, but my boyfriend! He is my best friend, it’s helpful and encouraging to always be on the same wavelength as someone you’re close too.
Favorite song right now?
Recently stumbled upon Hey Ma (remix) by Cam’ron, literally the best remix ever, I listen to it everyday!
My friends are some of the most talented people I know, my friends Sarah Willis (@third_wheel) and Monique Morin, ( @moniqueaimee) visually inspire me everyday, whether it’s pictures of donuts or beautiful hand lettering these girls are amazingly talented!
“GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN” -cyndi lauper , does that count?
If you could change one thing in the world, what would you change?
I want to change the way people are always comparing themselves to one another, and trying to fit in!!!! Love yourself for who you are, being different makes you cooler than you think!
There is a quote that says “every person is here for reason, everyone has a purpose”; what would you say is your purpose?
Right now, my purpose is to supply the world with delicious donuts while looking obnoxiously cute!
What is your hobby/hobbies?
Decorating my room, and finding the cutest plants! Lately my hobbies include going to the grocery store, swimming in lakes, and selling my clothes!
Harry Potter series, duh!!! I’ve been reading a lot of Bukowski though, he’s disgusting.
Italian bread, so basic but it never lets me down.
butterflies are the only animal that I’m not afraid of.
light pink and mint, and white, and black
If you could go back and give your 13 year old self a piece of advice what would it be?
be more careful with your retainer when you get your braces off, and apply to art school, two things that would have changed my life.
