Meet Sam Tarter
ON HER MORNING ROUTINE
My average morning consists of- slowly waking up, putting on some lively tunes, feeding my cats and then jumping in the shower. Afterwards I quickly get ready and tend to leave the house with my hair still wet. The subway to work has become a therapeutic time of reading before entering the office.
on designing at coach
Design has always been a main focus for myself. In college being located in nyc made it possible to get the exposure and experience from companies that I looked up to. When graduating I fell into a apprenticeship at Coach that lead to a full time design position. My job consists of Research/Concept/Sketching.
on her personal style
I am not a big shopper, but there are a couple of vintage spots that I recommend to my friends; No Relation, Hamlet’s Vintage, Rock Star Crystals & What Goes Around Comes Around. As for aesthetics and inspiration, I always drift towards something that appears precious in the way that it may be one of a kind, I want to love everything that I own in its own particular way.
on her beauty routine
As far as beauty I like to keep it simple. Morning and night I wash and moisturize my face with Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Cleanser and thats basically it. For makeup I keep my skin pretty bare; a few coats of Benefit mascara, Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer, Clinique Blended Face Powder and a smudge of Lancome lipstick. I sometimes use Make Satin Finish Eyeshadow. For hair, every three weeks I find myself chopping my bangs in the bathroom mirror; I tend to like them better when they are kind of screwy. Burt's Bees Baby Bee Baby Oil and Ylang Ylang Vanilla Hand Balm.
In my free time I like to draw anything besides clothing. Most of the time I do quirky character illustrations with phrases attached to them, or I create designs based on nothing but pure blah.
Music for me has far beyond my upmost respect as an art form. My whole life I have always been a fan, but in the last few years I have gained so much knowledge from my boyfriend. And recently I have started learning guitar for the first time since I was a pre-teen. Anyone want to join a girl band with me?
