About this Claire Person

Hey there! I'm Claire Geist, I write and take all the photos for this blog. This blog is called De Lune, like 'Clair de lune'.

I'm 28 years old, and I live in Brooklyn with my boyfriend Jevins, and our two cats, Tippi and GrĂ½la.

Let's boogie.

So, what's with the Blog?
I started this blog when I was in high school, and I take my own photos. I try my hardest to keep this blog the same way I did back in 2009 because I'm sentimental.

Where are you from?
I grew up in Queens, in a neighborhood called Sunnyside. If you have seen any of the new Spider-Man movies, you have seen this neighborhood. When I was 13, my family moved to Buffalo, New York. I started my blog after we moved; mostly because I had an attic I could hide away and do little projects in. I came back to the city for college in 2010 and I live in Brooklyn now.

Is that your natural hair color?
Alas, it is not. I'm actually blonde! I've been a converted redhead since I was 16, when it was dyed and cut short for a hair modeling gig.

Who takes your photos?
Unless I state otherwise, I take all of my photos.
This means I go out with a tripod and do it up. 
Sometimes it works  and sometimes it doesn't (I'll be the first to tell you that I'm not very good at editing photos), but I love trying.

What is your fashion/style philosophy?
I find style to be more interesting than Fashion. I have no idea how to really define what my own sense of style is, but I guess that's why I have a blog to begin with.

My mom, who was a graphic designer and tinkerer, has influenced me the most. She taught me what sleek, thoughtful, super-chic, gender-neutral, individualized wardrobes could look like- aaaand then I decided to horrify her with my love for the messier New Wave/No Wave/Kitschy influences that crept into my wardrobe.

I worked in the vintage industry for 3 years before landing a career in tech, and I think it's safe to say a good amount of my stuff is older than me. 

What are you doing when you're not on the internet?
Blogging isn't my main gig and I intend to keep it that way to make sure what I'm communicating is accurate and useful and not always influenced by a paycheck. When I'm not blogging, I work as a Data Strategist, creating datasets of images to train machine learning algorithms to predict what things are for retail and e-commerce

Actually, if you're interested in machine learning, I think the most important thing you can read up on is how it can be misused and continually biased
