Style profile: The goth girl

A La Mesa resident shares her favorite wardrobe items

Mia Tedford always wears black.

"I'm drawn to dark things. I don't feel comfortable in color," the 18-year-old tells me.

"I used to be Hollister prep. Those were the dark days. I had a quick punk phase too. I used stud my own jackets. I'm always changing," Tedford says with a shrug.

The only pop of color in Tedford's wardrobe comes from her lipstick. She usually wears red or purple shades on her lips. Mia works as a make-up artist at the Benefit Cosmetic counter in Macys at Grossmont Center.

None

Tedford's tribal style sweatshirt is from Flashback's in Hillcrest. Her sunglasses are from ACT II in La Mesa.

"This sweatshirt is my favorite. It was only $20. Pretty much everything I own is under $20."

None

Tedford's favorite stores are Flashback's in Hillcrest, M's Clothing Outlet, and Wild Trendz, both in La Mesa’s Grossmont Center mall.

None

Mia has lived in La Mesa her entire life. She likes the quaintness of the neighborhood and that it is centrally located. Her favorite local spots are Cosmos Coffee Cafe, Centifonti’s Bar and Restaurant, and the Living Room on El Cajon Blvd.

The cape Mia is wearing is from M's Clothing Outlet in Grossmont Center.
