Berkeley's been hit by a cold front (about time; all that sun and cloudless unblinking skies were making me antsy)- but now all I can think about is glorious Spring and not wearing tights. I'm getting bored of my closet; am thinking of packing up some clothes and selling them off at Buffalo Exchange, so I turned to street style blogs for some inspiration and WOW. It is the documented street style at fashion week that makes fashion week the astoundingly inspirational time it is, I think- seeing real people interpreting runway looks in their own ways. I'm all for crazy prints and textures and fashion as art, but what really draws me is how practical some of these looks are and how easily they would fit into my closet.
A collection of images, part 1:
More to come! I have Part 2 scheduled for tomorrow morning because there were SO many images that I wanted to save! I really should get a Pinterest account. But- I love the neutral layers, that AMAZING skirt in the bottom-most left picture, the slouchy yummy leather bags (that shade of maroon is so gorgeous), the strong red lip. Really inspiring me to up my game with my dressing! I have been in such a boring, formal-professional rut these past few weeks and I don't really feel myself when I'm not having fun with my clothes.
Sorry if that sounded vacuous. I just like clothes a lot, okay??
Now back to my paper and huddling indoors. The Berkeley cold was such a slap to the face after the sunny warmth of LA!
