If your style were an animal, what would it be? A 1970s art teacher's ferret.
New York, Repetto Pop-Up Shop Party
Name: Lesley Arfin
What do you do? I'm the author of Dear Diary.
What did you look like in high school? Not cute! I had short Winona Ryder hair and wore crazy outfits.
How crazy? Well, when I was 14 my favorite outfit involved a pink pleated skirt with these vintage black and white Nike platforms, with black fishnets and a camo T-shirt. That's some '90s raver shit.
What are you obsessed with right now? Right now I'm obsessed with people. Gary Shandling, Jen Brill, and Sophie McInnes!
