Idyll is wearing a blouse from Urban Outfitters, a scarf from Holland, and a sweater from Housing Works. Her shoes are Keds and she doesn't remember where she got her pants, since she's had them since high school. Her favorite store is Housing Works, where she says she's found many odd and beautiful treasures.
