Ms. Anne-Marie Dominguez

Knight Errant: What do you look for when choosing an outfit for teaching?

Ms. Dominguez: If I know I’m going to do a lot of moving around, then I go more for comfort, otherwise I will wear high heels and dress up more.

KE: How would you describe your style?

AMD: It’s kind of a little bit of everything. I really like sweaters, and I love things that are simple yet sleek, and not always modern or cutting edge. I prefer more classic.

KE: Are there any trends right now that you love?

AMD: I’m digging ankle boots right now!

KE: What or who inspires you when pulling together a look?

AMD: I guess I don’t have one inspiration. I’m the type of person that if I see something really cool, I’ll try to match that. Otherwise, I’m influenced by the people I see, and I’m huge fan of Project Runway.

KE: What is the one thing you will never wear?

AMD: I will never wear tube tops.

KE: In your opinion, which teacher has the best style?

AMD: I think Ms. Olson and Mrs Brew have nice style. Mr. Jones has his own sort of “Jones” style that is nice, and Dr. Gyolai is a snappy dresser.

Students’ paintings or art teacher Ms. Leah Klister’s outfit: what’s the real work of art?

Ms. Leah Klister

KE: What do you look for when choosing an outfit for teaching?

Ms. Klister: I think about what will I be comfortable in, would I wear it not at school, and what seems fun.

KE: How would you describe your style?

LK: I would describe it as collected and vintage inspired.

KE: Do you dress differently outside of school?

LK: I tend to wear a lot of the same things, but more jeans and I can wear things that show my shoulders outside of the classroom.

KE: What or who inspires you when pulling together a look?

LK: I like really classy 1950’s style.  I’m inspired by Audrey Hepburn and Katharine Hepburn.  I like highwaist pants, and blending my clothes with funky things.  I like mixing different patterns and jewelry.

KE: What is the one thing you will never wear?

LK: At first I said I would never wear skinny jeans, but that’s changed.  I just can’t wear high heels, I’m too clumsy.

KE: In your opinion, which teacher has the best style?

LK: I like Ms. Overbo and Ms. Stockhaus, because I shop with both of them. I think there are a lot of teachers here who dress really well.


 

Ms. Maura Brew

Knight Errant: What do you look for when choosing an outfit for teaching?

Ms. Brew: I like to look professional, and I like jackets a lot.  And after that, it’s about heat and comfort.

KE: How would you describe your style?

MB: I think it’s boring. I’d love to be flamboyant, but I’m actually quite boring; I’m predictable.

KE: Do you dress differently outside of school?

MB: I wear jeans, and more casual things. I’m not a sweatpants person though; I’m more jeans and shirt or a sweater.

KE: When choosing an outfit, do you look for comfort or style?

MB: I would say I have some pretty uncomfortable outfits, but ideally, both. I just try to wear something that looks half decent; something that doesn’t make me look a Christmas elf and makes me look taller. I don’t think of myself as stylish, and I just wear what I have.

KE: What or who inspires you when pulling together a look?

MB: I really don’t look to anybody or anything for inspiration, it’s more about what looks half decent in the morning.  

KE: In your opinion, which teacher has the best style?

MB: That’s a cruel question, I think we are an incredibly stylish bunch. And I think we all blend well together.
