    Jones wears a Zac Posen blazer that was a gift from the designer over a vintage tunic. "The colors are yummy and it has a nice minimal sensibility," she says.

    "I was really feeling strange patterns together, and red on red," explains Jones of her decision to top a 1980s Escada blouse with a vintage dress in a mismatched print. "It started to have much passion with the slightest edge of humor in the double patterns."

    In keeping with the color scheme, Jones throws a coat that was a gift from a friend over her warm, red outfit. "The colors feel succulent and delicious and look good when you are pale," she reflects.

    "This dress is Marc Jacobs and I wear it often even though it is a gown," admits Jones, who makes it more casual with a top she draped and designed for Outlaws of the Border. A wig by Dennis Gots (dennisgotshairblog.blogspot.com) makes the look darkly dramatic. "I have several and they are more fun than hats!"

    A pom-pom necklace Jones picked up in Taiwan adds a "sense of delicious humor" to an Outlaws of the Border coat that she designed.

    Jones received this GapKids plaid jacket as a gift in 7th grade. "I used to dislike it," she admits. "That is why it's still in good shape."

    "I bought this vintage dress with my best friend, Sibyl Buck, in Santa Monica the day Michael Jackson died," recalls Jones. "Yes, I remember these things."

    "I feel kind of androgynous and cool in this look," says Jones. She wears slouchy cashmere pants of her own design, Chanel heels and a sweater that was a "1980s boy find" with a necklace composed of various pieces she collected over time, including a compass. "It's cheap, technically broken and symbolic---follow your inner compass."

    "This dress is one of my favorite pieces that I own," gushes Jones of her vintage knit frock. "I wore it in the south of France near the pool. It's lightweight and great to throw on and look chic and quirky."

    "I wanted this piece for a while," enthuses Jones of her Alexander Wang leather overalls. She wears them with a knit top from Opening Ceremony.

    Red lipstick from Italy makes Jones's pout pop. "I noticed all the hot girls were wearing it in Europe, so I bought myself some as a gift," she explains.

Lindsay Jones, 25; designer for Zac Posen and owner/designer of Outlaws of the Border (outlawsoftheborder.com); Park Slope, Brooklyn

Her personal style: "Personal. Extremely personal. I am the signature to my style. It sort of dances around my senses."

Her inspirations: "Art, people, fashion, history, pop culture, music, the seasons, the color of the sky...it is a personal magnetism to beauty and a visual language, quite honestly."

Favorite stores: "Opening Ceremony carries Alexander Wang and has the cutest staff in the city. Eva New York is good, minimal and modern. And I like Bergdorf and Barneys for throwing down some money."

Favorite designers: "I love Tom Ford, Zac Posen, Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs."

How she describes New York style: "Anything goes. I would like to say 'chic,' but honestly, I see some of the best fashion in the world here and some things I would like only to forget."

How her style has evolved through the years: "Two decades ago I was super into Esprit pink corduroy, so it may be funnier to see what is the same. I am still a huge fan of Cyndi Lauper, but my shoes are a bit more expensive."

I am wondering what Linsay is up to these days since there is nothing recent posted from her collection. I find her and her style very interesting and inspiring and am really looking forward to what else she may come up with. Indecently, I had those esprit pink corduroy pants in the 80's heeee, wore the corduroy right off those babies!
