Meet Sarah Vinciguerra
ON HER MORNING ROUTINE
I wake up around 8am, do 30 minutes of exercises & yoga stretches. I then have my coffee & breakfast while perusing free craigslist and my horoscope.
ON HER personal style
I don’t have a particular aesthetic; First, I go for things that make me feel excited, then I ask myself can afford this/will wear this? Although that gets thrown out if I decide I’m in love with it.
I’m so lucky to live with an amazing fashion designer, illustrator, and boutique owner, Donna Jean Baxter. Whenever I don’t know what to wear or have anything to wear, she dresses me up... it’s like having a sister who only has the best stuff.
on her favorite books
I first read A Hero of Our Time in high school. I love rereading favorite books periodically throughout life. Each time it’s a different experience with a new perspective. A Hero of Our Time never gets old to me. I love the antihero, Pechorin and I’m always moved by how beautifully and accurately Lermontov depicts winter.
On being inspired
Lately I’ve been inspired by Laura Sfez & Goldie Hawn from Overboard. I like classy, simple silhouettes that are both classic and sexy. And then somedays I want jeans and a T-shirt and flats!
On HER FAVORITE beauty PRODUCTS
When buying beauty products, I want it to smell good, work well, and contain natural plant based ingredients. I get a lot of my stuff at this shop in Greenpoint called Brooklyn Groove. I think the most important things are to wash your face, moisturize, and protect it with sunscreen.

ON HER ideal weekend
My ideal weekend would be to drive upstate to the New Paltz area since I lived there for two years and miss the nature and small town charm. I would climb to the top of a waterfall, go swimming in a mountain stream, go shopping at the antique and thrift stores, and eat farm-to-table!
