SHOP THE LOOK

“I’m optimistic that things will start to go back to semi-normal this year, and there’s something about putting on real clothes that feels like you’re going to do real work.”

BEHIND THE
SCENES

SHOP THE LOOK

“I love being comfortable. So a good pair of jeans should be just fitted enough—where you know I have a shape but I can still move around.”

SHOP THE LOOK

“The best advice I’ve ever received is to make sure I’m having fun, to celebrate the wins. I can get tunnel vision in terms of what’s next, what’s next, what’s next. But looking back at what you’ve accomplished is really important.”

SHOP THE LOOK

“At the start of the pandemic, I was walking twice a day—early in the morning and when the sun went down. It was really peaceful and gave me some agency. Listening to music is also essential to me, it’s calming. Putting myself in other people’s shoes too. That’s why television is so great—you get to disappear into another world.”*

*In case you’re wondering what Issa’s binge watching: “Big Mouth has been a source of disgusting joy during this time.”
