word on the street_fashions night out was a success. designers, photographers, muses, and models took over the streets. pop up shops, guest appearances, a clothing drive, and delicious treats, what more could you ask?
daily fashion tip_its been kinda rainy lately. like torrential winds and freezing cold temperatures. what ever happened to indian summer? some say it got sent to a reservation but that's a debate for another day. in order to combat the wind and the rain i've armed you with the trench. black and tan are the way to go sherlock, word on the street is gap has the simplest, durable cuts( i know i love my black, knee-length, double-breasted trench.) for flair try a graffiti trench from rachel rachel roy. it's investment piece.
