We met over the summer in the middle of Times Square. Tara had just gotten out of a yacht party that I was unfortunate enough to miss and the first thing she said was, "cool glasses." (Naturally, they were SUPER). We later headed to the Bowery Hotel to don real floral wreaths while listening to A$AP Rocky and A$ASP everyone else well into the night. When you meet over a perfect summer day like that, you can't really help but stay friends.
You'd swear Tara is from the West Coast, with her chill personality and her surfing and painting ways. Though she's spent some time there, (and rushed back to New York with the quickness) she claims Wisco' and can hang with like one of the dudes while still being everyone's favorite girl. What other chick do you know who would describe her style as "ambiguous concrete wave" and would search out two different Taco Bell locations because you both needed to experience all that the Dorito taco had to offer? None other than TJWisco'. —Sarah Kim
