Occupation: Sales associate at Spectators and Hobbs –– two locally owned businesses on Mass St.

Time in Lawrence: Nine months.

What were you doing when you were scouted? Working at Spectators.

How would you describe your style? My style is pretty muted. I don't wear a whole lot of color. It's also a bit quirky — I like to mix old clothing with new, hard materials with soft (like leather and lace or ruffles with motorcycle boots). It depends upon my mood, too. I'm not really one to plan outfits.

What are your favorite fashion trends? Mixing prints, layering accessories, and all things vintage.

What are your least favorite fashion trends? Inappropriate clothing for the weather, pointed toe shoes, and not dressing for your body type.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? Trader Joes, thrift stores (I miss Beyond the Door!), and street vendors.

What would you like to see less of in Lawrence? Girls that can't walk in their shoes.

Do you have any piercings/tattoos? Yes and yes.

Do you have any fashion influences? I'm influenced most by everyday people with great personal style.

People Say I look like... My friend Rachel, and Zooey Deschanel when I have bangs.

Tell us a secret: I have a weird fascination with left-handed people

So are the 20 somethings the only 'stylish' people in town? Does 'stylish' end at 30?

MyName 3 years, 11 months ago

They've had people older than 30 before. Remember though, the median age in Lawrence is 26.

I always obtain my eye-rings from Ebay, after yellow house puts them up for sale.

Least favorite fashion trends: "Inappropriate clothing for the weather..." says the girl wearing a mini-skirt outside with wind chills of -15. Maybe she was being ironic?

dickmerkin 3 years, 11 months ago

rg, you're over-thinking this. Kanani, the rest of us leftys are OK with the skirt...really.

My comment got scrubbed? Its a fair question. Style doesn't end at 30, heck look at the people, Mark and Kathy Swanson, that Kanani works for!!

overthemoon 3 years, 11 months ago

oh...it just didn't show up along with most of the others. nevermind!!

I interviewed Mark Swanson for Style Scout over two years ago: http://www.lawrence.com/news/2008/jan...

Just saying.
