Street snap from February 21, 2011

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Location: Los Angeles, California, USA
Clothes: Vivienne Westwood

My comments: I was stunned by how well dressed all the workers at Vivienne Westwood were because I did not expect them to be decked in head-to-toe in VW! The instant I saw what they were wearing, I fell in love and my eyes turned into stars. They totally rocked what they were wearing and were incredibly friendly. I love it when the store workers are friendly and have a smile on their face because it puts me at ease and makes me want to come back again. I can’t wait to go back to the store once they have the custom shoes option in place because I want my pirate boots!!!

Name: Dia
Age: 7
Location where picture was taken: Manhattan, New York, USA
Outfit inspired by: Kitty animated book

My comments: Isn’t Dia the most darling thing ever?! She was so sweet and I got to meet her when she told me she liked my outfit while I was at Port Authority to meet Sherri. I just love the bright colours and the layering she did. I wish I was that fashionable when I was young! I think my mom dressed me up whenever I wasn’t wearing my uniform for school.

Name: Ichika
Age: 22
Occupation: Student
Hometown: Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan
Location where picture was taken: Manhattan, New York, USA.
Shout out: I’m from Japan!
Point of outfit: My favorite kandi items.

Clothes from:
J&G, Cyberdog, Baffallo shoes

My comments: The instant I saw her Mononoke scarf around her bag, I knew I had to talk to her! I absolutely loved her hair and it is such a shame you can’t see her eye makeup. I adore the way she used colours and how vibrant they were yet they didn’t really pop in an overwhelming way. This outfit is just awesome and I adored her outfit!!!

Name: Jackie
Age: 20
Occupation: Student
Places of residence: Northampton, Massachusetts, USA and Green Lane, Pennsylvania, USA
Location where picture was taken: Northampton, Massachusetts, USA.
Shout out: Steph, for putting my white trash Wal-Mart get-up in here.
Point of outfit: To me, fashion has to be fun, comfortable, suit your body type, and to some extent, be sensible to your lifestyle, climate, budget, etc. Fantasy is fun on the runways, but sculptural pieces and wacky heels don’t make sense when it’s cold and you take the bus. So I guess to me it’s a form of self-expression and a chance to play up the body parts and aspect of yourself that you love :)

Tunic: No Boundaries (Wal-Mart)
Jeggings: Miley Cyrus/MaxAzria (Wal-mart…don’t judge!)
Heels: Qupid (…Alloy? I think)
Earrings: Apartment 9 (Kohl’s)

My comments: It’s a shame that the earrings aren’t very visible because I liked them so much! Since I wear black so often and have a hard time mixing colours up, I was drawn to Jackie’s outfit that didn’t have any colour repetitions that brought the outfit together yet it still looked coherent.

Name: Itsuka
Age: 30
Occupation: Art student
Hometown: Tokyo, Japan
Location where the picture was taken: Pasadena, California, U.S.A.

Clothes: Marc Jacobs

My comments: I was loafing around Urban Outfitters when I saw Itsuka’s bright red beret and yellow shirt and instantly recognized that the shirt was from Marc Jacobs. Maybe it was the bright primary colours that I’m so fond of that intrigued me, but something about her outfit really caught my eye. I think it’s the loose sweater that brought the outfit together along with the cute choice of heels that rounded off the look in my eyes.

Name: Sarah
Age: 19
Occupation: Student
Location where the picture was taken: Pasadena, California, U.S.A.

Coat: San Francisco
Boots: Payless
Shorts: Haight Street, San Francisco
Shirt: Anap
Scarf: Anap
Hat: Anap

My comments: While shopping at Forever 21, I saw a glimpse of pink hair and got excited so I looked again and loved Sarah’s outfit. I adored it because of her lovely tights and boots, which looked great with the simple coat. She looked very chic and polished while being warm at the same time, which I still haven’t learned to do after going to a college in New England! I really liked the rocker feel to the outfit while also have a cute air to it and the pink hair was a cherry on the top.

Name: Joanna
Age: 21
Occupation: Student
Location where the picture was taken: Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts, U.S.A.
Principal residence: Montpelier, Vermont, U.S.A.
Point of fashion: Looking cute while being warm. I also ran out of clothes to wear due to the rest of the clothes being in the laundry basket.

Coat: L.L. Bean
Cardigan: American Apparel
Long sleeve sweater/shirt: H&M
Skirt: Old Navy
Leggings: American Apparel
Legwarmers: American Apparel
Boots: Uggs
Bag: Urban Outfitters

My comments: What I loved about Joanna’s outfit was that it consisted of different colours yet it all seemed to come together. I don’t know what made the outfit work, but when I saw it, I thought, “Wow! That looks great!” I also adore those legwarmers although liking anything by American Apparel makes me want to gag. I have went against my views many times this year, so why not just add liking American Apparel to that list, ahaha; Joanna makes them look so cute.
