Rebecca Carr, a quirky cat lady with no cats, innovative designer for the girl that refuses to grow up, and one of The Big Lebowski's biggest fans, allowed us to riffle through her things like an episode of Room Raiders and interrogate her about the trials and tribulations of being a high school outcast. Good thing, because we learned a lot; even cute, bubbly girls own porn themed playing cards, and apparently Pin the Tail on the Donkey acts as a successful drinking game and great post-party wall art...
Rebecca, was there ever a time when you weren't fashionable?
Well, I got made fun of in high school for the way i dressed. I think everyone has experiencees like that and the best way to deal with them is to put it all out there. Now, I try to live awkwardness everyday of my life.
Right now my favorite movie is The Big Lebowski. 'Sometimes there's a man. And sometimes there's a man.' Dude just wanted his rug. I'm also obsessed with reruns of Seinfleld. Anything thats quirky or silly. I dont like anything too serious. I just want to be silly and have fun.
The Fashionable Bystander: Rebecca Carr
Would it be fair to assume your favorite color pink?
Well it varies, but right now, yes; it is pink. But in a season, it will probably be black.
For some reason, I can't see you wearing black.
It might be because everything in my closet is print, not black or white. When I get dressed in the morning, I try to intentionally not match, which can sometimes be more difficult. There are alot of ways to not match, so basically I just put together whatever I think is the silliest.
Would you admit to being like a big sister version of the Style Rookie?
Its interesting because I'm a big fan of Tavi. As a 13 year old blogger from Chicago, she looks at inspiration from high fashion and interprets through her quirky lens. She also doesnt match and has short hair. The difference is, when I was thirteen, I was trying to decide between the two sweatshirts my mom laid out on my bed, not reading Vogue and attending fashion week events.
So your style philosophy aligns best with a thirteen year old.
Yeah, I still like the teen stuff better because it doesnt take fashion so seriously. Basically, I'm gonna postpone growing up.
Like take a one way ticket to Neverland?
That sounds about right. Somewhere I can eat ice cream and candy and never grow old.
