Street Style: Mae's Casually Artistic Look

Posted By on Fri, Oct 11, 2013 at 4:44 PM


I discovered Mae on a visit to Tamp & Tap, one of Memphis' newest restaurants/coffee shops. In the middle of downtown, adjacent to urban eyesores and empty retail, it’s a visual oasis, though it would be in any hip city.

And inside the picturesque interior, I caught a glimpse of Mae’s high bun and thick bangs as she dashed past me cleaning the tables. I immediately grabbed my camera.

Taking a quick break from her shift, Mae walked outside, grabbing her purple-tinted sunglasses and distressed denim bag for a more accurate portrait of her everyday look. Her dress was as far from a purchase as I’ve ever heard. It was a dress her friend pulled from the “lost and found” bin at a local Chinese restaurant. How’s that for resourcefulness?




As a sculptor and performance artist, she presented a quirky but compelling look that I don’t often find in Memphis. Look for her upcoming show at Glitch gallery in Midtown around the first of the year.
