Cintra Wilson Goes Shopping:
December 18, 2008
This week, Cintra Wilson returns to her Critical Shopper post at the Thursday Styles, and undergoes a disturbing transformation after her visit to downtown vintage shop No. 6.
La Cintra has been perhaps the most self assured and opinionated of the rotating cast of Critical Shoppers at the Times (which now mainly consists of Wilson and Mike Albo with the occasional guest shopper). Perhaps it was a full moon, or maybe she was just having an off day, but this weeks column finds her uttering the following phrase to a salesperson: “Would you pick me out some stuff I would never think to try on?"
This comes from someone who admits, "I’ve been dressing like an extra from “The Matrix” since high school."
Can this little shop be the site of a dramatic personal style shift? Stay tuned. This sounds like a developing story.
