There isn't a moment when this beauty isn't singing or dancing around! Check out her interview below along with her fly Instagram: charlestonadams!
Q: Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I could sit with a cup of coffee and a couple of my favorite records for the rest of my life and be alright. I love to physically write things down.. poetry, lyrics, mindless streams of consciousness, etc. I tend to be self aware and critical on myself but it seems to come easier for me to love the world around me, and that is something I've been working on. I tend to nap during the day and be hyperactive and creative late at night. Its an endless cycle of no sleep.
Q: My guilty pleasure is...
Almost anything that you would expect an elderly woman to do, I catch myself doing. I drink a cup of coffee and watch the today show.. yes the today show.. every morning. I love baking and if you visit my house, you should be ready for me to feed you sweets and make sure you're taken care of. I also really love a nice bath and a novel. Oh I also wear matching pajamas to bed.
Q: How would you describe your personal style?
Honestly, I've never been able to descriptively label my style. I will say, I've come to find that I tend to just wear what reflects my mood. Lately Ive been wearing my baggy boyfriend jeans and a black tank top and jewelry. I suppose I would say I'm a minimalist and wear basic colors and pieces. I think everyone wants to feel good and confident and I think your personal style should always include what makes you feel good in your skin. also.. lots of black.
Q: Weird semi secret talent you have?
I can do the worm. It's absurd, I'll never do it for you.
Q: Do you have any fashion rules when putting an outfit together?
absolutely not. even so, rules are meant to be broken.
Q: Who are your biggest fashion icons?
I really love the 70's era, in all facets. I admire the way Stevie Nicks dressed specifically. I am extremely drawn to the female vocalists and performers of the 70's, and I identify with the personality that shows through their fashion choices.
Q: Who was your favorite Celebrity crush?
It would have be young Mick Jagger, or Jim Morrison.. oh and young or even modern day Chris Cornell.
Q: Favorite 90’s tv show?
I honestly could name plenty of great 90's television shows but I'm much more passionate about 90's films. My favorite of all time is 10 things I hate about you. Sure, It was made in 1999 but nonetheless It stars Heath Ledger AND Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It's a 90's dream come true.
Q: What’s the last song you listened to?
Gospel Song by The Be Good Tanyas, currently actually. I'm using my brain for this interview and this playlist helps me use it.
Q: What’s your next fashion MUST have?
ooh well I love coats and lately I've been on the lookout for a long, vintage, deep red leather coat with white fur on the trim. yes, its specific but I think it would be rad.
Q: Top 3 favorite bands?
Of All Time. Fleetwood Mac, The Smiths, The Rolling Stones
Q: If you were a pizza, what kind would represent you the best?
Honestly, I don't like the taste of pizza too much.. so I'd rather be a burger.
Q: What is your favorite Mamie Ruth clothing article right now?
I adore the RAMBLIN BAND black ripped tank
Q: One person you would love to meet and why?
Stevie Nicks. She's stated before that she has entire rooms packed with filing cabinets that are full with poems and lyrics. I think I could die in peace after being able to hear her tell me about them personally.
Q: he next place I want to travel is…
I've always wanted to go to Greece but I also would love to visit Norway sometime soon
Q: What’s your favorite quote?
Q: Describe your perfect day?
Probably spent somewhere by the water, then coming home to cook a nice dinner and making music all night.
Q: What’s something people would be surprised to learn about you?
I don't know if this would surprise someone but its something that most don't know about me. I'm extremely fascinated by celestial objects and the night sky. I actually bought myself a telescope for my seventeenth birthday.
Q: Who inspires you and why?
My brother immensely inspires me to be a kind and beautiful person. He has a true heart of gold and unconditional love for the people around him. I'm endlessly lucky to be one of them.
