We've been following The Stranger's Editor in Chief, Tricia Romano, since her days at Village Voice and later during her time at The Seattle Times. She's been super busy at the new gig since June, and the newspaper's 25th anniversary special issue is out today, Wednesday, October 12th. Long story short, we were psyched to have the chance to talk to her for Style File.
Name and occupation.
Tricia Romano, Editor in Chief, The Stranger.

Motto to live by.
It is what it is.

Describe your style.
I don’t know that I have a style. I shop at the Gap, Ann Taylor, Target, and other really generic stores and wear pretty simple clothes (a lot of black and gray and stripes) and try and trick people with accessories. Look over there, a chunky necklace!

Who is your style icon?
My style icon is Debbie Harry circa 1980. I loved her bleached blonde, super sexy, rock’n’roll look. She was and is effortlessly cool. I’m fairly certain she would not be caught dead in anything from the Gap.

What is your favorite place to people watch in Seattle?
Sitting outside Cafe Pettiroso to watch the real life fashion runway of Capitol Hill. It is especially good in the summer.
