Kristi, a graphic designer
Jaxstylefile: What inspires your style?
Kristi Howell: I sort of get inspiration from every where and every one. If I see something and like it… I develop my own interpretation of it and test it out. Sometimes, it’s a hit… sometimes, a miss. Honestly, I think that’s what fashion is all about.
JSF: Who’s your fashion icon?
KH: I could list a few well known favorites, but I wouldn’t consider them my icons. I don’t really have a “fashion icon.” I think some of the most fashionable people, are those who don’t necessarily know it or try… ignorantly original. Eventually, all us “fashionable” people will be wearing the same awkward pair of boots we were mocking a few years before.
JSF: If money were no object, what would you buy for your wardrobe?
KH: Hmmm… let’s see. If money wasn’t an issue… shamefully, I would buy whatever I wanted, when ever I wanted. If I loved it… I would just buy it. I wouldn’t obsess over it for months, pinch my pennies, and eventually, break down and buy it. It would just happen, right there and then. Awwww… that would be nice. HA HA. Although, in a real world, if you already had everything you wanted… You probably wouldn’t appreciate the things you have, quite as much.
JSF: Where do you shop?
KH: There’s nothing I love more than coming across a great find! I am definitely a garage sale, thrift store, girl. I enjoy hunting for little treasures. With that said, I do work at Anthropologie a few times a month so, my closet consists of quite a bit purchased at Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters. Anthropologie is one of my favorite stores, even if I didn’t work there. I love how interesting, eclectic, and natural everything is. Referring back to question #1 “what inspires your style”… I’ll say, Anthropologie is VERY inspiring.
JSF: What’s your go-to garment
KH: This is an easy one… CARDIGANS! I love cardigans! HA HA. You can just throw them on and it makes your outfit, in my opinion, a little cuter. Funny enough, I counted my cardigans the other day. Embarrassingly, I have a ridiculous amount of cardigans.

Jonathan, an attorney ***the only guy, obviously… haha.
