As part of our UNDEFINED project, Ooh St. Lou will be sharing bios of the women featured in the original shoot.
What do you do?
What prompted you to take part in the UNDEFINED project?
Like so many, I saw and was deeply disappointed by the STL Business Journal photo shoot. I know so many remarkable women who have acted as my inspiration, support, and best friends, and not one of them would ever define herself with her shoes. I know businesswomen, bartenders, shop owners, strippers, doctors, mothers, and photographers. They are each incredible and individualistic, not to mention so much more than what they wear, shoes or otherwise.
What stereotyping have you faced in your career, and how have you handled it?
Where can people find out more about you/what you do?
You can find me working at a wedding most weekends in and around St. Louis. I’m also usually to be found haunting local bookstores, vintage stores, and antique malls. Online, I blog every week at The Pretty Vintage Girl (www.theprettyvintagegirl.
Honestly? I do have a lot of shoes, and I’m not about to apologize for a single pair. But if you try to define me by them? Well, we’re going to have a problem.
The UNDEFINED project explores and is a response to sexism in local media, for more information see our original post on the project. UNDEFINED will be on display at SOHA gallery in January 2017, visit the Facebook event page for more information on the show.
