I'm one of those rare birds, an actual native of Arizona. I don't know what it is, but a lot of people here seem to have been born somewhere else.
I grew up with an older sister who was very into the John Hughes films of the 1980s. We were constantly at the Value Village thrift store looking for the perfect oversized top, hat, or enormous earrings for her ever expanding, Molly Ringwald-esque wardrobe.
I guess that was my "outliers" time of discovery...I spent so much time looking for interesting bargains in thrift and antique stores that that's pretty much what I excel in now. Although my interests in design, fashion, and art are primarily from midcentury to the 1980s. I can't really explain why. I know it has something to do with the radio station that was always on in my bedroom as a little girl. It was KOY, and I'm telling…
