The beautiful, ambre haired, boho babe that is Sara Waiste came to visit us at our Manchester Studio and made a selection of her favourite vintage items from We Are Cow. Being a vintage lover and connoisseur of style and fashion we were so happy when she agreed to come and rummage through our basement full of vintage ready to be shot and uploaded to our website.
Our in house Photographer Lucie Crewdson was on hand to take some gorgeous images of Sara wearing her chosen items. It was so good to see how much fun Sara had too with rails and rails of one off items, we'd almost go as far as to say there were definitely 'kid in a candy shop' vibes going on and we loved it. It's so nice to see someone really appreciate all of our stock and our work put into making We Are Cow online a success.
We asked Sara a few questions about her style, love for vintage and where she sees Sara Waiste in the future and heres what she said:
HEY SARA! THANKS FOR COMING IN TO SEE US. DID YOU HAVE ANYTHING IN MIND THAT YOU WANTED BEFORE YOU CAME IN?
I've actually been on a hunt for the perfect boho winter coat for months now, I'd bought a couple but didn't feel like they were 'the one' so I was hoping I'd find a treasure when I came in, but I wasn't expecting to find such an amazing one as yours!
WHAT DID YOU THINK TO THE COW PRODUCTS ONLINE?
Good, a good selection of stuff and I really like the model choice, the girl with the blonde hair looks awesome.
WHY HAVE YOU CHOSEN THESE PARTICULAR ITEMS?
I've got a kind of boho hippy vibe to my look, so I wanted to choose products that reflected my own personal style!
YOUR STYLE IS MOSTLY VINTAGE AND YOU RUN YOUR OWN VINTAGE COMPANY, SO WHAT IS IT ABOUT VINTAGE THAT KEEPS YOU SO EXCITED?
The thrill when you find some AMAZING one-of-kind piece of clothing you've never seen before that looks like it was made for you, is kind of like an addiction for me, I've always bought vintage and I've shopped in charity shops since since I was little. It's that feeling that you've got a piece of clothing that no one else has, it's different, and as someone who has never wanted to look like the same as anyone else I love that.
YOU HAVE SUCH A HUGE FOLLOWING ON INSTAGRAM NOW, WHAT IS IT ABOUT YOUR LOOK THAT KEEPS PEOPLE INTERESTED?
I honestly have no idea? Maybe it's Herschy (my fluffy cat) that everyone loves! I've always been myself, and styled everything my own way and people must like that I guess!
WHO DO YOU LOOK UP TO FOR STYLE INSPIRATION?
Definitely fellow bloggers, tumblr is a great one for inspiration and Stevie Nicks and Mary Kate Olsen are perfect boho babes.
WHO ARE YOUR MOST FAVOURITE FASHION BLOGGERS?
Ooh that's such a tough one! Helena for sure (www.bellsfashion.blogspot.com
) she's a rainbow mega babe and so inspiring, Ashley from Purse in Boots has the best grungey boho style (http://pursenboots.blogspot. co.uk/) New ones I've recently discovered and love are Leticia (http://bohemiansbanquet. blogspot.co.uk/) and Muzzy Stardust (http://velvetgoldmine.pl/) And my Australian boho babe faves are Caitlin (http://celestial-calling. blogspot.co.uk/) Taylor (http://onyx-eye.blogspot.co. uk/) and Leana (coconutlemonandlime.blogspot. com) Omg there's LOADS more I love I want to put them all down but I will be here all day!
HOW DO YOU LIKE THE NEW WEBSITE?
Love it! A lot cleaner, brighter and way easier to navigate, and so much more to read and get inspiration from, the blog, trends and inspiration pages are brilliant!
DO YOU HAVE ANY STYLE TIPS FOR US THIS AW'13?
All about the layers…and the faux fur gilets, i'm obsessed with them at the moment!
WHERE DO YOU SEE SARA WAISTE IN 5 YEARS TIME?
I'd love to be working in my own studio and have a team working for me, expanding my label, and my vintage shop might even be a real shop? Would love to still be blogging away too, hopefully having bought lots more beautiful vintage clothes throughout the years! And maybe with another fluffy cat too...
