Hope you’re feeling this week’s jam featuring San Francisco-based singer-songwriter Thao Nguyen and the Get Down Stay Down.
ISSUE: Spring 2012
DEPT: Audrey Style
STORY: Anna M. Park
Indie rocker Meg Frampton has always been frustrated with jewelry. “I think jewelry should have special meaning and should remind the person of something positive. It shouldn’t just be a shiny rock on a chain,” says the 26-year-old, who once worked at a jewelry chain store. So she crafted a robot out of base metals and vintage watch parts and named it Chandler (yes, the one from Friends — Frampton’s one-time obsession).
“Chandler the robot is quirky, steampunk, a bit on the ‘industrial’ side with a classy-feminine edge,” says Frampton. She’s expanded the collection to include other iterations of the original (Stupendous Chandler is particularly adorkable), bringing her visions to life while on tour with her sister Dia and country singer Blake Shelton. Her love of the quirky spills over into the Korean-Dutch American’s personal style as well, who finds inspiration in the gothcute aesthetic of filmmaker Tim Burton. “I love it when fashion has personalities,” says Frampton. “Sometimes I like adding a little
‘darkness’ to an outfit.”
My feel-good outfit: Cute shoes and a vintage dress. Big earrings.
Wearing straight off the runway: Floral accents, wedges.
Can’t wait to wear: High-waisted cut-off denim shorts — because I live in Austin, Texas, and I can.
Style secret: Keep a pair of flats in your purse if you know you are going to be out for a whole evening, just in case your heels are killing you.
