Sweet as a peach (pun intended!) – that’s how I would describe the pint-sized Georgia native, Reese Blutstein. Any girl who counts thrifting as a means to standing out is ace in my book. Reese’s style is simple with a youthful edge, so while she was in New York visiting (in what was possibly the coldest spring week) – we caught up with her donning turtlenecks and drinking tea…

Describe your style in three words.
Minimal, structured, inventress.

What is your ideal outfit to wear everyday, your uniform?
Either jeans or trousers, I am very much a pants everyday type of person. For a top, either a blouse tied in a funky way or a printed tee. Shoes are where I like to spend most of my time (and money) because you can have a simple outfit but if you add a crazy cool shoe, the outfit automatically stands out.

You seem to have quite the collection of sweatshirts! Do you have a favorite, and why?
I do have a few sweatshirts, because when it’s cold, it’s my go to. It’s kind of fun to style something that is often viewed as “lazy” in a cool way. I like to style a sweatshirt with some printed pants and a statement jacket on top. My favorites are by Collina Strada. She deconstructs sweatshirts which I really appreciate – the idea of something simple that’s designed in a new, unexpected way.

How has growing up and living in Atlanta, Georgia influenced your personal style?
It’s forced me to think outside the box. There’s a certain style among a lot of women in the south that I don’t relate to. So I think I was constantly trying to find new ways to wear things that weren’t like everyone else. That was the main reason I got into thrifting because I knew it was a guaranteed way to not wear the same thing as the people I come in to contact with everyday.
