This marks the last Q&A of 2012, and I'm super excited to end on such a high note. Nikki Garcia not only works for Levi's, but she is also the designer behind the small-batch American label First Rite out of San Francisco. Her clothing is evocative of Coco Chanel and has a certain rustic-yet-sophisticated vibe to it. She in influenced by menswear and clothes that are easy to wear while still looking sharp. Four words for you: I love this line.
 
If not in San Francisco, I would live in...Montana.

My dream holiday would be to...go on a ghost town/hot springs road trip tour around the country.

My current obsessions are...

Food: Homemade pizza, arugula on everything, and hard ciders of many flavors.

Music: The Beatles and Grateful Dead always.

Fashion: Mom jeans, pistol boots, and a collared shirt buttoned up to the top and tucked in.

Retail Stores: Voyager and General Store in SF, Assembly NY, and Opening Ceremony.  

I channel my childhood self when I... hang out with my twin sister! 

The fictional character I most relate to is...I want to say Nancy Drew but my life is just not as interesting.

If I had to be outdoors all day I would...be in the woods.

My favorite quality in a man is...thoughtfulness, humor, and beautiful blue eyes.
  
My favorite quality in a woman is...a sense of humor and an adventurous spirit. 

I'm terrified of...spiders. 

My dream car is a...woody wagon.

My cocktail of choice is...tequila, lime juice, and soda. 

My celebrity crush is...Antonio Banderas in his Desperado days.

My beauty product of choice is...Weleda Wild Rose Day Cream.  

My friends and I like to...ride bikes.

If I could go back in time for one decade it would be...the 1960's feel like an obvious choice.

As a teenager I was totally into...getting in trouble.
  
I tend to splurge on...shoes and denim. Especially ankle boots. 

Choosing pantsuits over dresses...is what makes me have Tomboy Style.
