    Trending: Minimal to No Jewelry

    Have you noticed lately? Jewelry has become practically optional – and when you do see it on the street, it’s most likely minimalist. I suppose jewelry – like everything else in fashion – has its cycles. I actually find it amusing that while block-heeled shoes in granny styles are now fashionable, big statement jewelry many of our grandmothers […] Read more…

    The other day while running in my neighborhood, I came across this scene. It isn’t often that I see real street style in Seattle (they were tourists searching for Curt Cobain’s house). And so naturally, I spun around to capture it all with my iPhone. I mean, how often do you see a pair of cool Mary Jane-ish boots (to the […] Read more…

    Jewelry, It’s a Personal Thing

    Our last blog post was about a street style trend regarding jewelry – which seems to range from minimalist (simple hoops, delicate lariat necklaces, and other “nude” pieces) to non-existent. However, I always find people on the streets – thank goodness! – who successfully defy any of our attempts to define what is considered fashionable. A recent article at Refinery29.com interprets this minimalist […] Read more…

    Styling a Graphic Tee

    Have you noticed? Nearly every online fashion mag is featuring an article this week about white or graphic tees. From a practical point of view, both are comfy for warm to hot weather.
