Josh Navarro: How would you describe your style?
Raphaela Guzman: Part of me always tries to keep it classy, but I’m incapable of taking myself seriously. My weakness for florals and the bright colors usually runs the show, so my style ends up being kind of kooky. Sometimes I pick certain colors or patterns because they are evocative of things I wore as a kid, and I take comfort in them.
JN: Any favorite shops around town?
RG: My favorite places are two quirky little shops in Takoma Park called Now and Then and S&A Beads. I always walk away with an awesome handmade scarf or bracelet, or a witty bag.
JN: What are you wearing in this shoot?
RG: A J.Crew chambray shirt, Silence + Noise floral skirt, red tights from Modcloth, grey and white Dr. Marten’s oxfords, a periwinkle Casio watch, and François Pinton glasses.
