Memory Lane

Raina Hamner, 25
“From age 13, I started hanging things on the wall—postcards, pictures from magazines, pictures of my friends. I used to watch I Love Lucy all the time, and I went through a Marilyn Monroe phase.”

Yenna Christensen, 23
“I would only wear this dress if I were about to get in a cab and go somewhere. I can’t imagine taking it on the subway or walking around too much in it. But it would still be beautiful if it were dirty.”

Melia Marden, 25
“I’m girlie in that I like to dress up. But I don’t know if I’m girlie in a frilly sense.”

Lee Dawson, 12
“I tried putting together different clip-outs from magazines. I put them together and made a collage of hot guys: Ashton Kutcher, Orlando Bloom, Chad Michael Murray. They’re just hot.”

Trilby Hamner, 21
“This room used to be my mom’s painting studio. I got it when I was 16. The dollhouse is there because there was nowhere else to store it.”
