I spotted Laura shopping at Odd Twin and fell in love with her coat and pink lipstick. When I asked if we could snap a photo of her for the street style feature, store owner Francesca chimed in, “That’s why we hired her!”
But when Laura isn’t shopping or working at the store, she’s commuting to Connecticut, where she teaches first-year writing at Fairfield University. Check out her blog, which features a non-linear memoir, unedited poetry, and links to publications. Also check out her work with Illuminati Girl Gang, an all-women literary zine (which is currently accepting submissions!).
And about the coat?
“This isn’t even mine,” she said, laughing. “It’s a close friend’s.”
