This is MC. She's one of our daily regulars. She provides us with ample amounts of good times. It was an obvious choice for our next Meet The Neighbors. Not only does she enjoy her daily coffee with us, but you can also see her chilling in the backyard for hours before her shift at Justine's as well as trying on multiple outfits from the vintage collection. You may see her in a beautiful rainbow colored Huipil that she snagged here OR watch out for her Fall/Winter look which entails a Pendleton cardigan a la "The Dude".
Let's get to know MC a little bit more shall we? She grew up in San Antonio, Texas, where she was a troublemaker turned academic. She made the top 10% in her class and brought herself up to UT Austin where she studied Anthropology. She was attracted to Anthropology because it incorporated theory and helped her understand why humans are humans and why everything was the way that it was. From capitalism to enlightenment to patriarchy. It taught her a lot about how to adjust in the world and what kind of systems we live in.
Her mom is also a major influence on her life. Trisha Shaughnessy. A Dallas deb who got paid by Neiman Marcus to be a model. She's also a huge enthusiast of Mexican treasures and incorporates a colorful folk style. MC grew up around this aesthetic and it influenced how she dresses. Another contributor....her craziness. She believes that the more unrestrained your brain is, the more unrestrained your clothing is. In High School, it was one of the easiest forms of personal expression and a moment of rebellion.
Lately, she has found that her life relates a lot to the movie Paris is Burning. AKA: gay, angry, poor, angry about being poor but spending a lot of money on clothing. At night she works at Justine's where she "really enjoys being around a bunch of weirdos". You can also find her riding her bike around town a lot or going on a fantastical excursion. She has wild desires to go to Neiman Marcus and stare at pretty clothes. (Full circle back to mom).
How she takes her coffee: Iced americano with a little bit of cream and a little bit of simple syrup. Just the tits. Sometimes she likes a red eye (iced coffee with a shot in it).
Favorite item in the store: This bad ass baller rabbit fur coat, which she has now decided must be hers.
We all need a little MC in our life!!!
