Joey Rodolfo is the man behind Buki. His vision was to create a sportswear line that works with your body. The definition of “modern lifestyle” has evolved to a hustle and ever-changing. It would make sense for our clothes to enhance our capabilities, not weigh us down.
A lot of people think San Francisco Bay Area is all hipsters who drink too much tea and sit around playing guitar. There are definitely a lot of those people, but SF style is more than that. It is driven by this stereotype and beyond.
I am finally back in San Francisco. As much as I loved seeing my family, being in the middle of nowhere makes your brain go numb. Baker Beach is definitely a spot that I will race to on my down time.
Contrasting patterns are like eye-candy when it comes to outfits. It adds and eclectic and curious element to a look, and it leaves people staring (in a good way). There are some rules to follow when putting the ensemble together.
When people hear the word “vintage”, there are thoughts that link to it. People often think of hipsters or old musty clothing. I wear vintage 4 out of the 7 days of the week, and most of my outfits lean toward the modern look. It’s not about the individual piece, it’s how you style it.
Wearing a head-to-toe look from your favorite brand or store always gives you an extra boost of confidence. This white ensemble is from my favorite store, Mercy Vintage in Oakland, CA.
I’ve been drawn to vintage/worn-in tie-dye tees lately. The best ones in Goodwill or in vintage shops are always the kid sizes. They have profound graphics and color. When I found this one, I was shopping for a styling job. I couldn’t say no.
As much as I would love to walk into a Gucci or Prada store without a worry of how much money I spend, I simple can’t. I was once embarrassed or scared to say that I can’t afford some brands. Being in fashion school, there can be some pressure about buying the latest designs.
