LATTER STYLE

HEY!
Apparently this is my 100th blog post so next post I'm doing something super duper special next post (hint: it involves a massive giveaway and a bunch of weird outfits) so get stoked for that.
SO this month I decided to interview Meagan who pens the eccentric Latter Style. She has one of my favorite wardrobes on the internet as she fully commits to a pseudo-goth kid look embellished with risto and rodarte. She also wears cool glasses.


If you could be any tree what tree would you be?

I would be a stereotypical leafless, dead-looking tree perched outside of a sprawling Victorian haunted house.


You take a lot of really cool photos for glitterguts, where do you get inspiration for your work?

My inspiration comes from the people at the parties! I let their ridiculousness and drunkeness guide me. When it comes to composition, I'm really influenced by Chas Ray Krider and Helmut Newton. I like dynamic angles that provide a sense of movement in my work.



3. What's your favorite thing about wearing mainly black and blue?
I just like the way they look together! I can't explain it any other way. When black and blue are combined together, it just feels very moody and spooky. Blue on its own is boring, black on its own feels to "cool" for me.



. You have probably one of the greatest wardrobes on the internet. What would be your top 3 favorite items of clothing you own?
Ha! I don't think it's that great, but thanks! Rodarte spiderweb cardigan that I got at the sample sale. It's black with blue stripes and shiny threads. It's a spooky work of art, basically. I love it. Prada eyebrow glasses, from eBay. I suffer from vision problems as the result of an assault in middle school, so weird glasses are a way that I take ownership of it. My Fever Ray t-shirt, because it has an awesome story. I was in an airport waiting for my flight back to Chicago, and I was deliriously hungry, so I stopped in a gross-ass deli in the terminal. As I was waiting for my flight, I noticed a tall stoner dude with an awesome black Fever Ray t-shirt on. I complimented him on his discerning music taste, made small chat, and next thing I know he's taking the t-shirt and handing it to me! It happened so fast that I didn't even have time to register it. All I could muster was an "omigodthankyou!" and he walked away. His name was Terrance (I think). It's perfectly fitted and perfectly faded, and no matter how many times I wash it, the smell of weed clings to it slightly.






You attended your first nyfw this past fall, any highlights worth sharing?

Meeting Eleven Objects was THE BEST. I loved them. They dined me with delicious pastries and I lost my mind over their collars. Meeting friends from the blog world, finally! Eating pizza every day. Mandy Coon's show. Stumbling around Soho in the pouring rain at 4am with my best friend Morgan after partying at a reformed goth bar.



Favorite thing about goth kids?
I started going to goth bars/parties when I was 17, and in many ways, I never grew out it. I still feel like a goth kid. I'd have to say my favorite thing is the sense of comraderie - they're always willing to take care of each other and keep the scene alive.


Who are the worst kind of people on the internet?
Oh god. Kenneth Ablow, Ross Douthat, Michelle Malkin, all of those intellectual conservative writers who espouse intolerance and bigotry. It's one thing to be hateful out of ignorance (like most YouTube commenters). It's another thing to be extremely intellingent, like these people, and use your intelligence to spread hateful beliefs.


Thanks Meagan!

Great interview, I liked the questions you asked and Meagan is awesome! I've loved her blogged since the first time I saw it. She has excellent style and I like what she writes about.

I really like the outfit you're wearing below this btw and to answer your question, I use the Adobe CS5 Suite products... mainly photoshop. I just finished a degree in Graphic Design so that would probably explain a lot :)
