Josie Bogner: One of the Thrifting Queens of Ukiah High


Share post:

Josie Bogner is a junior at Ukiah High School. She is sweet, smart, and takes multiple AP classes. Bogner runs cross country, has an active social life, crochets, avidly reads, and somehow manages to be one of the vintage queens of Wildcat Nation.

Smart and sweet is not the only thing that stands out. Her fashion stands out among her peers in many ways. Between her vintage sweaters, 70s-style pants, cute hairstyles, and thrifted Doc Martins, she has a unique aesthetic that can’t be matched.

Bogner told us that most of her clothing is from thrift stores in Berkeley or borrowed from her parents and grandparents. “It’s a collection of many years” she states. When asked how she puts her outfits together, she poetically described a  “sea of clothes” that fills her room that she looks through each day to put together fits inspired by the 1970s. 

Bogner told us her outfits are not time-consuming, they are “just whatever I find in the morning.” Bogner likes earth tones but makes room for brighter colors too. She might be best described as having earth-fairy vibes. 

Another part of her outfit worth mentioning is her unique version of Doc Martins.  Bogner says “These are vintage docs and are two sizes too big so I am wearing really thick socks” For two sizes too, big she totally rocks them.

Bogner is, with no question, the thrifting queen of Ukiah High. She is a 70s earth fairy with a bright mind and sweet persona that is loved by many. You might not know her by name, but you definitely noticed her fits in the halls.
