Sam Quartin

Clothes, music, art, conversation – it’s all ultimately boring if it’s not genuine. Not everyone leaves you obsessing over owning an army jacket, as Sam did for me. She, in her pared-down, utilitarian wife beater, leather jacket, jeans and a tee, reeks of personal style because of her bare-bones honesty and comfort within her own skin. Just as Sam knows when something feels right deep inside with music, she does the same with her clothes.

Currently, she is in an anti-fashion mood, due both to the dedication to her music, which she believes is more powerful if the focus is not on how she dresses, and to the overdose of it when you have been born and bred in The Big Apple. Sam quit modeling because they wanted her to wear dresses to castings, but she couldn’t be someone other than herself. I admire the fact that she refuses to use her “sex appeal” to make it. The Kardashians, Snooki… makes you wonder whether women’s liberation even happened. Sam’s shredded-to-a-pulp Converse tell not only the story of her endless passion for concert-going, but of how good taste is really born out of being true to yourself, not giving your power away to anything or anyone else. Every time you try to fit in or be who someone else wants you to be, it shows.

If you love Sam, you may also like Sarah Temple-Raston, Max Hurd, Siena Fleming and Jenny Shimizu.

    love when she says that later in her life she wants to look back on what she achieved and know that she achieved it because of her talent and her heart… and not by taking the easy way out… it might take her longer to achieve the things that she wants to achieve, but she isn’t losing her sense of self… what a beautiful statement… so simple, yet so powerful. i wish that more people felt that way… and it’s a shame that most people don’t. elisa, i appreciate how you mention the kardashians and snooki in your writing above, those are perfect examples of women who have sold out just to make a quick buck or two… they may have a few bucks in the bank, but at the end of the day, they sacrificed their class and dignity… two crucial things that their money could never buy back.

    Unique, beautiful, stylish, and sexy with no need to go ‘Sex in the City’ on us. So refreshing to know that there are women like Sam out there.

    Hard to take this seriously when she looks like she got dressed at Urban Outfitters. Those shortie cowboy boots are truly nauseating.
