▶▶atlanta street style▶▶
since moving to atlanta i have always thought that the local fashionistas needed to be given the credit they deserve and that someone should shed that light via street style photos. a little bit a go, i realized that “someone” should be ME! i have long kept up with my own outfits and admired so many others, well now, i’m going to do the best of both worlds. i am still going to post my own looks ((always!)) but definitely want to give credit, where credit is due to those other fashion forward folks out on the streetz!
yesterday i had planned to attend the free in-store Tegan & Sara show at Criminal Records in Little Five Points and being that it’s in a hip part of town i thought it’d be a great day to break into the street style scene. it went very well, and with the help of my new camera-Canon Rebel 500D-i got some great shots of many laid back looks!
the manager at Rag-O-Rama, one of my favorite second hand shops, surely knows how to rock the knee highs! a look i’m def going to try this fall!
outside the show i spotted this local fashion student dressed to the nines. when asked if he was dying from the scorching heat he replied “hell yea i am, but it’s totally worth it!” and yes, he’s looking mighty sharp!
another show goer sporting a vintage acid-washed tee tied in a side bow, a style i love to rock when wearing over-sized tees.
this friendly lady is a comic book artist and really good at what she does, as i was able to see some of her sketches later in the day over at Java Lords. loving her fun mix of colors and those rad sneakers!
cyclist Joey wearing a vintage eye-catching Hawaiian top, very appropriate for this H.O.T. afternoon!
such a nice color combo, but i must say this photo does not do this outfit justice, i wish you could see her gold accents better because it really gave the overall look a nice touch. chloe works at American Apparel and was showing me all these new high-waisted shorts they recently got in, i am on a mission to at lease have 1-2 colors very soon! i actually found the top she is wearing at Rag-O-Rama in grey, super pumped about my newest crop-top addition!
not only was i attracted to the colors of this top but also the cut, really like the longer sides-very unique.
these dudes were great, they are sporting some hand-crafted shades by a NY lady friend, aren’t they fabulous?! you go boyz!!
check out amber’s adorable gremlin tattoo! she turned out to be a friend of friends and after chatting it up we snapped some photos and talked music, it’s nice living in a city where you can meet folks you kinda already know.
rrrrreally loving the choice of colors in her outfit, red definitely suits her-right?!
checking out some threads outside of Rag-O-Rama, wearing some vintage roping boots i’ve been on the hunt for-for no joke, over 2 years! haven’t found the perfect fit yet, but one day, these fabulous boots will fall right into.my.lap.
admiring this stellar 90’s grunge revival jumper, don’t know if she ended up purchasing, but i sure hope it makes it into a good home!
her friend also had some nice kicks, vintage Aigner oxfords, adorbs!
this tattooed southern belle was sporting a lovely Urban Renewal dress in the prettiest shade of blue, complimented her skin and hair color nicely.
and lastly, laura, a Brazilian fashion designer who turned out to be the friendliest person i’ve met in a very long time! she actually made the top she is wearing and has some other designs in this Bill Hallman as well. she mostly designs tops & dresses-check out her designs at www.laurabrazil.com
i am very grateful for all of the excellent feedback i got while out on the street scene, everyone was very kind and supportive-thanks so much everyone!
totally wanting to hit up some other neighborhoods because Little Five Points is just the tip of the city iceberg when it comes to fashion!
