GRUB & GARB dossier / Shara
October 14, 2014 § Leave a comment
Blue hair or golden hair, long flowing dresses or hot pink Doctor Martens, Shara is exciting to see. This wunkerkind knows her stuff about singing and performing, too. Oh yes, she also skateboards and bakes delicious treats. Basically, Shara has got a lot going on and I was curious to how she would pick her favorite clothing and food.
NAME – Shara Lunon AGE – 25 OCCUPATION – Musician and server
From start to finish, what would be your ideal food day? Ideally, I’d like to start off with a smoothie; greens and fruits mixed together. Plus, an extra large cup of joe.
For lunch, perhaps something with carbs, like a sandwich (like the B.R.A.T. from Daily Green) with a big old salad on the side. (B.R.A.T. = Bacon, radicchio, arugula and heirloom tomatoes with hand-raised bacon lime mayo on country loaf.)
For dinner, I usually go for curry or stir fry; something heavy in veggies and a bit of protein, with rice.
Favorite cities for food? Salvador, Brazil. New York. Kyoto, Japan.
Favorite splurge? Chicken and waffles, ice cream and dessert of any nature, particularly with chocolate.
What catches your eye on a menu? Probably price first, but I generally check out the specials or chef’s choices, then hit my default sections like the salad area.
What’s always in your fridge? Spinach, coconut milk, yogurt and leftovers.
Describe your personal style. I’d say I’m pretty eclectic. I like to mismatch in a particular way that highlights textures one day or patterns the next. I like dark colors in the fall and winter, and bright ones in the spring. Although, black is always my go-to staple. I like vibrant prints, head wraps and accessorizing with glitter. People like to call me “space opera princess” and I think that sums it up nicely.
Are there any key pieces you find yourself wearing constantly? A black skirt, my space themed platforms and an oversized, army green button-down that has patchwork on the back. Also, glitter.
What is your most recent purchase? A vintage, two-paneled gown.
Style icon(s)? Betty Mabry, Solange, Lisa Bonet as Denice Huxtable, Erykah Badu and Sun Ra.
