I hope you all had a safe, joyous, and loving Thanksgiving! One childhood holiday memory that always makes me smile is the family sitting around the table after dinner looking at the paper. We would make our plan of attack for Black Friday. Who would make the run for the televisions? Who would get the lawn furniture? Which refrigerator or washer and dryer would mom get this year? What stores had the latest boot style on sale? It was all so invigorating.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
With this off the shoulder trend now taking a back seat, I decided to give it one more go. When trends are at their time’s end, it is my favorite time to try and make them new. I had usually worn this top in particular with jeans or cropped flair pants.
