In the reigning downtown New York style goddess department, there’s really no competition when it comes to my girl, Lissy Trullie. Fashion-y freaks have been obsessed with the former model/janitor since the 2009 release of her guitar-riff heavy, mega booty kicking EP, Self-Taught Learner. (Psssst…Teach us how to rock your killer pixie cut, girl. Seriously.)
The Olsens-circa-NYU-days used to frequent the Beatrice Inn and that’s where I first turned straight (jkjk!) for Trullie (and her TO-DIE- FOR bowler hat). She was being all kinds of punk perfection perched behind the DJ booth blasting rock n’ roll and hardcore rap jams for the sweating, bouncing, vodka-spilling hipsters in shredded-skinnies below. Gahhh, yes, the collegiate glory days when overpriced vodka sodas (thx Mom!) and cigarette smoke replaced steam facials as my after-dark religion. I’ve since retired my “Save Beatrice” shirt, but Trullie isn’t just the typical it-girl-who-lives-for-nightlife type; she’s a hair-whipping/losing her mind rock n’ roll machine onstage! In other words: go and get your iTunes on because her full-length self-titled debut album finally arrives next Tuesday!
In the meantime, check out her Drive-meets-Excess Baggage (OMG) music video for “It’s Only You, Isn’t It?” featuring a lil surprise cameo from her BFF Chloe Sevs and since this is the first installment of MTV Style’s “FAVORITE THINGSSSS…” *Oprah Voice* column, check it out and let us know what you think.
