We are really, really, really excited about this: Our very own Editor-at-Large, Jenna Davis, has drawn a series of Shmitten Kitten pin-up girls where each girl embodies the essence of a Philly neighborhood. We'll post one up every week. And, we are gonna kick things off with this beauty, the West Philly DIY Darling.
Inspired by our friends Chloe from the crust/metal band Atakke and our girl Sarah, this fiesty lady can throw together a killer vegan dinner with pretty much zero notice. Her clothes have the coolest screenprinted patches and pins affixed to them, and if you ask nicely, she'll make some for you too. She can cut a pair of Carharts into a hot ass mini skirt in a matter of minutes--which she'll wear even though her legs are bruised from crashing her bike. She doesn't mind playing hostess to bands on tour, even though she secretly intimidates them with her ability to thrash it up with her superhuman ability to pound whiskey and cheap beer.
