Name: Sasha Sarene Morgan
Location: Seattle, WA
Occupation: I’ve worked at Sub Pop records for 5 1/2 years, first as receptionist and now as a radio promoter and A&R rep. I’ve also had an Etsy store (Sarene Vintage) for the last couple of years, and I pillage Goodwill bins and estate sales every weekend. My dream is to have a vintage store one day and somehow work at Sub Pop at the same time.
What informs/inspires your style? I’ve really been into Tavi and Rookie Mag lately. I am really bummed that she wasn’t around when I was an angsty teen in south Georgia. She’s definitely influenced a few craft nights of making flower headbands. Other fashion inspirations: the magical Pacific Northwest (flannel and rain boots, a must), Star Trek the original series, Joan Baez, Marilyn Monroe in The Misfits, Diana Vreeland, and my formerly hippie parents & their hippie friends.
All-time number one favorite thing to wear (and why): Definitely a cape! It’s like wearing a blanket…what is better than that?
What’s something you’ve been thinking about a lot lately? My husband and I just bought a killer house in the Leschi neighborhood of Seattle, so we are currently obsessing over everything we’re going to do to fix it up. We don’t close on it until after Thanksgiving, so we just have to sit and wait and dream of all the possibilities. I just want to get in there right now and rip up the gnarly carpet and tear out the fixtures.
Current non-fashion obsession: I’m currently pretty obsessed with a Seattle band called La Luz. The singer Shana Cleveland was in a band called The Curious Mystery on K Records, but this is her new all-girl surf rock band. I’ve taken it upon myself to be their unofficial manager and have been sending out their tape EP Damp Face to some folks.
