Break Babe: Maggie White

Maggie White shot and interviewed by Kira Shipway


I first met Maggie in 2015 when we were both young store managers in Soho. Thankfully she forgave me for the time I threw her shade in our office group chat for wearing flip-flops to work, and we’ve been close friends ever since. Life of the party, a real natural beauty, and lethally hilarious, Maggie is the type of friend you can always count on— whether it’s shotgunning a beer or taking care of your dog. Discover her love for dad rock, Saved By The Bell, and where she goes for the best burger in the city below.

 How did you discover The Break?

Through Instagram years ago—back when she was The Break Vintage! 


Describe your personal style?

My style jumps around a lot based on my mood for the day, but I tend to lean more toward the masculine side of “gendered” clothing. Heavily inspired by the 70s and I LOVE denim—give me a good mom jean or a flare and I’m happy!


What inspires you the most?

I get super inspired by the styling in older movies and TV shows—especially from the 70s and 80s. Jodie Foster’s outfits in Taxi Driver were to die for and I wanted every item in Kelly Kapowski’s closet in Saved By The Bell

Favorite item in your closet?

I’m obsessed with this green velvet bell bottom jumpsuit from SugarHighLoveStoned... I was about to drop some serious bills on it and then I won it in an Instagram contest?! It was a lucky day. 


How do you spend a typical day off?

If the weather is nice I want to be up and outside as soon as possible—the beach is my favorite place in the world, but in the city I’ll settle for a day at the park! 

Favorite bar/restaurant/coffee shop in NYC?

I love Rocka Rolla for the beer chalices and jukebox, love Rintintin in Nolita for this insane burger with a block of feta cheese on it (it’s unreal). I usually try to make my coffee at home, but I’m a sucker for a La Colombe redeye.


Future goals/hopes/dreams?

That’s a loaded question and I have a million answers for you, but a serious goal of mine is to live on the beach! The city is so fun and where I feel I need to be right now, but I’m happiest and the most myself next to an ocean. 

Who are you at the party?

I’m an outgoing person at the party so if I’m not on the dance floor (which I most definitely am)  I’m probably making my way around the room attempting to talk to everyone—I could talk to a wall. 


Favorite artist/album to listen to on the train?

I’m still fucking obsessed with SZA’s album and I’m not ashamed to admit that I listen to it non stop. If it’s not Ctrl, it’s Sylvan Esso, Grateful Dead, Beach Fossils, and a LOT of stuff your dad listens to. 

Best advice you’ve ever been given?

Don’t take life too seriously and never be comparing yourself to others! Everyone is on their own wavelength. 


Three things you can’t live without?

My Friends, Music, Coffee.


Tell us a secret?

Never ;)
