Name: Lana Moon Nyman

‘Hood: North Philly




Day Job: Freelance model and stylist for Free People.

Where We Found Her: "Killing time wandering in the city before heading into work."

What She's Wearing: Vintage t-shirt from Urban Renewal, Urban Outfitters' vintage brand; thrifted slouchy denim pants; H by Hudson lizard-print ankle boots; Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses; fringed suede mini satchel. "My boots were $325 and I purchased them for $15. You can find a great deal anywhere if you're willing to do a little digging!"

Where She Shops: "Locally, I'm still searching for my go-to stores. There's a thrift store right over the bridge in New Jersey that is amazing and a little sketchy, too—always a good trip there. When I first moved here from Washington state I had never heard of Zara, but I love the simplicity of their clothes. Other than that, places like Scout, Briar Vintage, Joan Shepp, Buffalo Exchange, and Wildfang—they're a growing empire from my native land, Portland, Oregon."

Sound Bite: "Modeling has allowed so many different styles and looks to influence my personal style that sometimes I feel like my closet looks like a costume store. Not chaining myself to one genre or look is what gives me freedom to be whoever the hell I want to be on any given day, and that's what makes fashion such an important part of my life. It's a form of liberation."
