Name: Ashley Renee

Day Job: Yoga teacher, studying with Dhyana Yoga.

Where We Found Her: InLiquid’s Benefit v. 14 at the Crane Arts Building in Olde Kensington.

What She’s Wearing: Nirvanna Designs headband from Lost + Found; vintage striped hooded sweater; vintage mink (“Couldn’t tell you where I found it, certainly secondhand. I don’t buy fur anymore, but I’ve had it for many years”); Coach purse “from ten years ago.


Where She Shops: Secondhand spots like Once Worn in Northern Liberties, Super Thrift in Kensington, or other people’s closets. “When I do boutique I like to feel welcome and have a good exchange with whoever’s behind the counter. Moon + Arrow and Lost + Found do this well. Moon’s jewelry designers are usually working in the shop, too, so I can ask questions.


Sound Bite: “What is my favorite thing about Philly fashion? Pajama pants.”
