Working in the fashion industry calls for you to have a staple. Grace Coddington has her gorgeous red hair, Anna Wintour’s black sunglasses will never be forgotten, and Danielle Bernstein’s minimalist yet intricate vibe is copied world wide. When I realized mine is a shoulder-padded blazer paired with sunnies, I couldn’t have been happier.
A Current Affair: Fashion History in the Bay
Burning incense sticks woke up your senses as soon as you climbed the metal industrial steps of the warehouse. Stringed fabric laced with flowers swung in the breeze from the gaping window. “A Current Affair” was scratched in chalk on a black board welcoming in each customer.
Boy Tees with Rainbows
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.
Catching All the Rays
Summer in the Bay Area is never the same. The weather changes from day to day and new events happen every year. Here is a look that can bring you from the 80 degree day to the 60 degree night.
Never Stop Celebrating
I regret not getting this post up on Mother’s Day, but better late than never! This outfit is a real vision of the past in the present. To honor my mom, I used her clothes to make an outfit!
Time-Saving Jewelry? Yes Please.
I tend to find myself going through a common cycle. During winter and fall, I wear a ton of minimal black, grey, and white. A lot of duster coats, turtlenecks, and high waisted denim. When a hint of a summer breeze blows through, I slowly pull out my earth-toned, patterned pieces and start to latch on to the bohemian style. My baseball caps and ambassador brand t-shirts come out as hiking season begins. It’s completely night and day.
Favorite Childhood T.V. Show Influences Clothing Obsession
Laying in bed ignoring my alarm, I had the most random thought. My mind flashed to a seen of my pre-teen self flipping from one television station to another. One of my favorite after-school-activities was to come home and watch Friends. When that was over I moved one channel up to watch That 70’s Show. This was pre-Netflix, so our modern binge-watching was watching reruns of television shows everyday after school.
Random half awake thoughts are my favorite because they give me the best inspiration. Mine are often random flashes of the past, possible encounters of the future, or just flat out weird scenarios. When I have them, I often use them to get dressed in the morning. That being said, I channel my inner Donna, Jackie, and Fez.
Snap It Up This Summer
Today I am wearing one of my favorite designers. Christopher Kane is known for black, browns, and grays, maybe a dash of blue. This FW17 season he showcased a use of sparkling sequins and flowers. He still stuck to his love of dark shades. The color in the collection really popped.
Car tires: The new footwear staple
What comes to mind when you hear “Mediterranean footwear”? I think of vibrant color, pom-poms, sandals, and beach inspired. Hunting for new brands that have an innovative, signature product that they have pride in is one of my hobbies. Instagram brought me to Abanibi, a shoe brand that is defining the production of footwear.
The Style Wheel
Fashion is a reflection of each person’s feelings, views, and attitude for the day. This is why we see political references in fashion month and why our closets have an array of colors. Ever since I was a little girl I was amazed by how trends changed. I noticed patterns and colors appear more frequently at certain times of the year. Recently, I noticed a drastic change of interest in myself.
