Entrepreneur and boutique owner Krista Kaur Meyers combines savvy business skills and in-depth knowledge of the fashion retail industry to offer a curated style experience at Krista K. She started her eponymous boutique 16 years ago and has never looked back. Here is how Meyers stays fashionably on trend.
ON HER NIGHTSTAND
“I love biographies and just finished The Vanity Fair Diaries by Tina Brown. It’s fascinating insight into the high flying 80s. Transforming Vanity Fair into a powerhouse, Tina’s world often intersected with the biggest names in entertainment, business, fashion, and politics and she tells the stories with humor and candor. It’s a fun flashback as well as a great feminist perspective to see how she juggled personal goals with professional ambition. I must be on a media industry kick because my next read is Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine by Joe Hagan.”
ON HER MOBILE
“With three kids, two rescue dogs, a business, and husband—I don’t have a ton of free time to spend online. I really try not to be tied to my phone posting and checking posts. That said, I’m on Instagram and stay connected with designers I work with like Veronica Beard, Ulla Johnson, and Mother denim. I love to see their inspiration and the lifestyles surrounding the designers and their work. I also really like Jetsetter, a cool travel website that features dreamy images and ‘in-the-know’ tips on pretty much every kind of trip you’d like to take. For apps, I love Waze! It saves me hours each week helping me navigate traffic as I go back and forth between Glencoe and Lakeview every day.”
IN HER EARBUDS
“On my daily commute, I’ll admit I often listen to Howard Stern. While not all of the show appeals to me, his celebrity interviews are the best. I recently listened to a Sternthology 2013 interview of Kevin Bacon that kept me entertained the entire ride. For music, Prince and the Rolling Stones are perennially on my play list for a good mood. Lately, though, I’m mixing it up by listening to some indie bands like the Revivalists and Cold War Kids, both have lead singers with really unique sounds.”
