Opening Ceremony Buyer Exposé: Kate Foley

Every morning I wake up, roll over, kiss the kitties, and stumble to my coffee pot. While I wait for it to brew me some consciousness, I head back to bed and pull open my MacBook. Refinery29 is always my first website stop. In my opinion, they're the most versatile site out there offering features by city. Refinery is my little fashion New York Times. "Who passed a bill? A rocket launched where?"... Haven't read that yet... but I do know every buyer for every store by name, every up-and-coming designer that's worth knowing about, and what photographer shot which shoot. My friends joke that I'm an encyclopedia for all things fashion. Hey, everyone has their skills!

"My Style" is my favorite section that Refinery29 has to offer. They scope out talented people in the fashion industry that are making waves, interview them, and feature their home and personal style. Back in May they featured Kate Foley, buyer for Opening Ceremony. This interview has stuck with me ever since. Her piercing blue eyes, the soft faded pink at the ends of her hair, and her ridiculously chic loft in Williamsburg, New York impact me still. Everything about her interview just made me like her! I grew up in a house filled with antiques so that was the first thing we had in common. Then there was the darling collection of Bearbrick toys that were introduced to her by her boyfriend. What a fun way to add color to a bookshelf! I also loved the chalkboard in her kitchen! I've been wanting some juvenile chalkboard art in my kitchen for ages as well! Ah, and her Yaskin Kianfar white cut out top (picture 4)... to die for, right? I admire the effortless way she rolls her jeans or wears white socks with her pumps and makes it look like a million bucks. Note, Kate wears hardly any make-up and looks gorgeous! Less is definitely more here and it is inspiring me to just don mascara and a nice pink lipgloss for a while! Funny enough... that old janky rolling clothing rack might be my favorite piece in her whole loft?! I would love to have just one rack for my super amazing over the top garments. Overall, for a 20 something/early 30's chick... this pad is fantastic. This livable space has a comfortable ambience with all of the antiques and the colorful books add so much life. But Kate's unique display of her mouth watering wardrobe is what really impressed me. Any girl that hangs a Hussein Chalayan dress on a $5 dollar metal clothing rack is a true artist, in my opinion. She appreciates fashion as art, as well as I. Here's to Kate Foley! I raise my glass. Now if only I could move to NYC and go work with her. ;)
