At 16, our prized possessions included a crush’s Drakkar-soaked scarf, “going out” pants from Express, and Antonio Sabato Jr.’s autograph.
Chrissie Miller, designer of downtown-based clothing line Sophomore, however, had good taste from the start. In today’s Inside Story, we peek through her rock ’n’ roll-inspired wardrobe, from a jean jacket she bought in high school (and still wears) to a vintage tee collection she’s been accruing since she attended a Madonna/Beastie Boys concert at age 8.
Miller also shows us a few of her favorite mementos — Woody Allen’s autograph, for one — and the first records she ever owned. You’ll feel cooler just by watching.
Enough to cancel out years of silk camisole tops.

Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett), and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
When in Rome opens this Friday. Check local listings for showtimes.
