District Fray: What D.C. style means to you
Daisy Lacy: I love the natural beauty of D.C. Rock Creek Park, with its many hiking trails, is probably my favorite place in the city. I think if we’re talking style and fashion, it’s really all over the place — like any big city. There are many niches to be found if you look hard enough.
Style icon and/or inspiration
I love the effortlessly low-key chic of Jean Seaburg in Breathless and the rock ‘n’ roll bohemian opulence of Jimi Hendrix. The Pretty Things, Grace Slick — all of the sixties psychedelic rockers had fantastic style. Fashion labels like Granny Takes a Trip, Biba and of course, Mary Quant, really broke the mold and set fashion free.
I like to think my personal style is a blend of Jane Birkin and Nigel Tufnel: a little bit feminine and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll. Occasionally, I turn it [up] to 11.
