Think you know what NYC cool looks like? Think again. Meet the Quann sisters: TK Wonder, a singer, and Cipriana, a blogger and co-founder of website Urban Bush Babes. Take a peek into the stylish lives of the Brooklyn-based, Baltimore-raised identical twin babe-sisters. Why? They have the kind of wardrobes we can only fantasize about, they’ve become lionized for their vintage style (think 40s-style Kimonos meets Saturday Night Fever platforms), they have Lisa Bonet levels of beauty and 2 die 4 braids. We sat down with the twins and chatted vintage shopping, cocktail sipping and Flash Dance.

AS IDENTICAL TWINS, DO YOU ENCOUNTER PROBLEMS WHEN IT COMES TO DRESSING?
Cipriana: There’s only one thing: shopping together. Our styles are individually unique but we love the same things – we take the same skirt but rock it in a completely different way.
TK: My style is extremely eclectic. You are speaking to a former sneaker addict and albeit the love has not vanished but my collection has downsized drastically. My obsession with wool maxi coats comes from that scene in Flashdance where Jennifer Beals’ character wore a wool maxi coat as she watched breakdancers performing in the street.
Cipriana: Our joint style icons are our mum, Diane Keaton, Lisa Bonet and Diana Ross.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO DO IN BROOKLYN?
Cipriana: The Mobile Vintage Shop in Brooklyn is amazing. It’s true vintage and everything is $10. I’m more into backyard parties or sweating it out to indie artists at gigs than clubbing.
