Style Profile: Coco, Part 3
I met Coco, aka Casey, a few months ago at an Achilles party. Coco is one of those people you notice right away when you walk into a room. She's vibrant. That night, I felt that I simply had to get to know her better. Thankfully, Achilles is one of my favorite haunts in town, so going back and striking up a conversation wasn't an issue.
Simply, Casey is pretty darn cool. She's gorgeous, witty, full of life, has a pretty amazing collection of vintage clothing (as is evident by her clothes in this style profile), and is a fellow runner. Oh, she's a gourmand! We're making plans to feast over grilled cheese sandwiches in the near future.
