#IANDMEStories -> Bobbi Wendland
#IANDMEstories is a celebration of style. A chance to catch up with our customers and to learn a little something new.
Meet Bobbi. A model, stylist and RTW merchant who says her style is ‘chaotic’ but for us, it’s just pleasantly perfect.
HI 👋🏻 @thatgirl.bobbi TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF
My name is Bobbi :). I read as much as humanely possible- I want a library in my home. Books make me feel calm and it feels almost meditative to sit and read. I drink far too much coffee- black americano always. Hot, not iced.
My favourite color is purple but I don’t actually wear it. I would say my style is a mix of 2000s Hollywood, femme California vintage with elements borrowed from the boys. Needless to say- my style is chaotic.
If I could live anywhere in the world I think at this point in my life I’d split my time between L.A. and Copenhagen.
My all time favourite snacks are apples and cashews. I don’t feel complete until I’ve had at least 3 liters of water. It’s good for your skin!
GO-TO STYLE OF JEANS
Loose, straight but kinda wide (??) leg, mid rise ✨
RAW, VINTAGE OR BLEACH WASH
It’s a toss up between raw and vintage!
SWEAR BY STYLING TIP
Pick pieces you feel the most comfortable in, if you feel good in what you’re wearing that confidence will radiate.
JUMPER OR CARDIGAN
YOUR PARTY TRICK
Ok so I promise! I can remember everyone’s names. So if everyone introduced themselves at the beginning of the night and we all sit in a circle at the end I could go round and say everyone’s name.
FAVOURITE I AND ME PIECE / NEXT ON YOUR WISHLIST
Well I currently wear my baggy rinse pair an embarrassing amount but I’ve got my eye on the raw wide legs 🤭
BEST PIECE OF ADVICE FOR SHOPPING MORE SUSTAINABLY
Ok so I’m not perfect and I’m still trying to be more mindful but here’s what I’ve got so far.
Buy things you really really love whether they’re new or vintage. Donate what you don’t wear anymore (ideally to a women’s shelter but you do you), sell things you invested more into.
Support independent designers where you can, and get to know the people behind the clothes. I’ll wait for new collections from my favourite designers and I end up buying fewer things but I’m more excited about the pieces.
