(Sherrie Kuper, wearing one of her vintage nightgowns from The Rabbit Hole.)
Against her usual reclusive nature, this vintage-loving New York native indulged my curiosity and sat for a 5-minute photo shoot during one of her visits.
When was your first tattoo? Last? Favorite?
My first tattoo was by a beautiful boy in my eleventh grade homeroom, Renee Soto. I was 16 at the time. My last was 2 weeks ago of a pin up girl. My favorite is my Frida Khalo portrait, she is my only portrait.
You are one of the most creatively stylish people I have met! You seem to always make the most unlikely things work together.
I am a B-girl for life. I will always find the unconventional appropriate.
How did you find The Rabbit Hole? What attracts you to stop here almost daily?
I opened a hair salon nearby and fell into the rabbit hole. (Visit akinkything.com to learn more about her work.) I visit often to escape and to feel good. The Rabbit Hole is my escape place. I always find a good source of retail therapy.
Words you live by?
Be yourself and don’t be anyone else’s picture but your own.
