Bridget Lang's Style Is Inspired by Glitter, Vintage, and Rock 'n' Roll
Andie Flores Bridget Lang loves strong females and collectible vintage items.
When 21-year-old Bridget Lang and her boyfriend walk around Phoenix, sometimes they get weird looks.
Lang, who has moved all around Arizona, says the couple just dresses a little differently. "I know people look at us funny," she says. "But if we're comfortable and happy about what we're wearing, it's all good."
Lang describes her style as a blend of "cutesy, quirky stuff" with a hard edge to it. She takes graphic prints and throws in a chunky shoe and fun accessories to complete her look.
"I get a lot of my inspiration from really strong female lead roles," says Lang. "For instance, in the rock 'n' roll world, there's Courtney Love from Hole, Kathleen Hannah and Bikini Kill, and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I even like Diane Keaton's looks from the '70s."
Lang says she also draws inspiration from blogging on Tumblr (you can follow her at glttrglmgrrl.tumblr.com), admiring Japanese street fashion, and even the vintage items she collects with her boyfriend.
"We collect clothing and vintage toys. We have some awesome vintage Pee-wee Herman stuff and even some Ren and Stimpy toys. I'm also into more delicate things like some porcelain lambs I've found over the years."
Currently, Lang is a nanny who loves making arts and crafts with the girls she looks after. "I'll come home with glitter and stickers all over me," she says.
Lang truly enjoys her job but says that after recently beginning to explore making her own clothing, she would love to make clothes for others someday.
"I don't have these weird ambitions of making a lot of money," she says. "I just want to be happy."
