Polly Lou Livingston

Although she claims she’s been playing dress up since before she was born, it’s safe to say Victoria native Polly Lou Livingston’s keen fashion sense developed in her father’s bygone department store, M.O. Simon. Growing up around clothes led to Livingston working as a buyer for the store, taking trips to New York to meet with designers and later working in San Antonio as a personal shopper for Frost Brothers, where she earned a nickel on the dollar (“If they spent $500, I got 500 nickels,” Livingston told the Current). Comprised of garments dating back as far as the 1940s, Livingston’s truly eclectic wardrobe—which takes up almost an entire room—seems to have a mind of its own. Take this chestnut for example: “Clothes have personalities. The outfit tells me what it wants at a particular time ... and I do what it says.” Livingston, who voices a yellow-green pygmy elephant named Tree Trunks on the Cartoon Network series Adventure Time, even dreams about clothes and trends. “I seem to know what’s coming up,” she said. “Black and white is back—even for summer. Black and white and gray ... maybe a touch of another color. ... But never wear white shoes after August.”
