I really couldn't pass up blogging about this....
Everyone meet Cathy Cooper, stylist of Echo Park, CA. She has long hair, tattoos, and sick style. I have no idea what age she is, but she still reminds me of all of the fashion lovers that I've ever seen in their 20s. I read this interview of her and it really expanded my google search. I find her so interesting.
