Shopgirl style: Jamie Gandy of Fifi Mahony's

Posted By on Fri, Dec 16, 2011 at 5:14 PM

Spend enough time in the company of gorgeously bewigged and bedizened mannequins, and you're bound to start resembling them*. Such is the case for Jamie Gandy, a designer and stylist at Fifi Mahony's, and I mean that in the best possible way. How can I not admire a lady whose standard work uniform includes fake eyelashes and a rhinestone-studded manicure? Admire her I must.

How would you describe your style?
Gamine Technicolor gypsy.

Who or what are your style icons?
Elvira Hancock, Stevie Nicks, Chloe Sevigny and Iris Steensma.

What style blogs or magazines do you read?
L'amour est La Guerre, Rony's Photo Booth, hotnewshit.com, hotbabysitter.blogspot.com and the Parisian publication IHEART magazine.

Where do you like to shop?
I truly shop anywhere and everywhere, but a lot of vintage for sure. If you have a real idea of what you like in a garment, you can find it anywhere (even a mall or the side of the road — true story)!

How does working at Fifi Mahony's influence your style?
At Fifi's, we get the most extraordinarily outrageous people. When you're in this place, nothing looks over the top.

What are some of your fashion tips?
1. Dress like it's your birthday every day.
2. Pants are optional.
3. Nothing is too much.
4. Wear hats and lipstick.
