When I met Cat to tour her downtown LA loft, I quickly realized how perfectly her personal style complemented her cool, cozy downtown loft. Unfortunately, I only had time to grab shots of her in one outfit—her signature black leather pants and plush cream sweater—before she packed up and traipsed off to her new home in NYC. I'll be visiting her new place for an update next month and getting the skinny on how her wardrobe has adapted to life on the East Coast. In the meantime, here's what she had to say about her fashion inspiration...

Your very favorite outfit: Knitwear and leather.

The #1 item from your fashion wish list: Thick eyebrows.

Your best bargain find ever: My gold bracelet. A merchant in Siem Reap randomly put it on my wrist and couldn’t get it off, so I had to buy it. It didn’t cost much, but at the time I was like wtf guys. Now it’s one of my favorites and I haven’t taken it off in 6 years.

3 things from your closet you couldn’t live without: I’m not as sentimental with my clothes as I am about my jewelry, which I never take off.

The item you no longer have but wish you did: When I was very young, I used to play dress-up with my mom’s beige Chanel bag and made a mess of it. R.I.P.

Most fashionable friend and why: Brooke Taylor Corcia, the founder of The Dreslyn. She curates the online shop, and everything on there is perfect. She’s so effortless, deconstructed, and cool.

Your typical work “uniform”: Black coffee, black tee, black skinny jeans, black ankle boots.

Best fashion advice: Smile.
