What's your name and what do you do?
Sarah Mincher. I run an all-girl Atlanta-based pop-culture website, as well as throw and host parties.
What are you wearing?
My leotard is H&M, skirt is TopShop, my belt is vintage, my tights are by Betsey Johnson.
Any trends you're excited about this fall?
I will say I have mixed feelings about the supposed second coming of '90s fashion. I mean, I love Seinfeld but do I really want to look like Elaine Benes? Um, no. But then again, I will say yes to velvet anything.
What are some articles of clothing that you consider essential?
Every girl needs a pair of perfectly tailored, black trousers and a quality-structured jacket. The right combination can make you appear thinner and taller. My favorite items I own are probably a vintage Chanel bag I found in a thrift store in London (which was a total steal) and my ring collection. I have so many cocktail rings I could open up my own jewelry store. With jewelery, I'm a sucker for over-sized statement pieces. They can instantly turn a "day" look into a "night" look.
If you're sizing up a guy, what are some outfit details that you really like? What do you find sexy or endearing?
I like a man who stands out and who looks like an individual. But I'm always a sucker for the classic hoodie/leather jacket combo, especially at the start of fall. Swoon.
What are some things that are absolute dealbreakers?
I know the whole "hipster mountain man" thing seems to be going around right now, but I can't stand long shaggy beards. It's hurts my face to kiss them, plus I'm always secretly scared there's going to be leftover food stuck in them -- food that will then touch my face. Needless to say, I like a well-groomed man.
If you were going out, trying to get laid, what would you wear?
The best way to get laid is not to look like you're trying to get laid. I'd say classy over trashy, with a side of push-up bra. You can't give all your cards away at once.
If you were to go home with a guy, what's something that, if you saw it in his apartment, would make you turn around and leave?
One time I went home with a guy who had a picture of me from an Atlanta magazine sitting next to his bed. And for some reason I didn't leave- and I really should have. So I'd have to say random pictures of me or random panties on the floor. Boys with girlfriends are a no-go; I don't like things to get complicated.
Do you have a staple outfit you like to wear when you do events in clubs? How do you decide what to wear?
I try to keep good relationships with boutiques and designers around town, so for larger events, I often get styled out and have access to one-of-a-kind pieces I wouldn't normally. It's a party girl's dream. But for a regular night out, I normally pick out a bright, party dress and build my outfit around that piece. And I'll take an extra bag of accessories out with me because I never want to be under-dressed. I want to be best-dressed!
What do you think men are attracted to about you?
I have really pale (bordering on blue) skin that certain guys seem to love. Plus, I'd like to say I have a stellar white-girl ass, and I will laugh at almost anything. Who doesn't love a good ass and giggles?
