“I was surprised there was so much pink available.”

Siri: I was excited to pick out clothes for Casey. We decided because of this story that we should pick out outfits for each other for a date and then just leave them out for each other.
Casey: We have lots of conversations about clothes. Siri collects garments, and we’re both intentional about what we wear. Siri’s style is poetic and has this distinguished elegance to it as well. I loved finding out what she’d picked for me. I was surprised there was so much pink available — surprised and delighted.
“I always know what she wants because that’s what I want.”
Sisters: Nadia Gohar, artist, and Laila Gohar, food designer
Nadia: I’d say the shapes in her wardrobe are sometimes more exaggerated than mine, but we share a similar style for everything — even food. I always know what she wants because it’s what I want.
Laila: My sister and I are only 13 months apart. Sometimes I feel like we’re kind of the same person. I chose that outfit for Nadia because that’s one of my favorite colors, and I liked that the shape was boxy but the fabric was really light. For me, she chose a dress that was really tight and short. I was really into it. I always find it interesting when people describe their style as, It’s a little tomboy, it’s a little this, a little that. I’m like, what do you mean? Do you always look like that? I’m always in flux.
