When you think fashion and style
Houston doesn’t really come first to mind
And that’s quite understandable
We might be a little late to the party compared with sorority sisters the likes of Austin or Portland or New York and San Francisco but we’re certainly making up for lost time, ringing those bells and whistles with absolute vigour. And with more than a hint of savoir faire.
Those are words one would typically associate with Texas and, in a downstream fashion (see what I did there?) with Houston. True, true. Yet through the (recently defunct) HFB group, I’ve pleasantly discovered that there’s truly far more than meets the sartorial eye when it comes to stylish women (and men) in the Lone Star State city of Houston.
So when HFB ceased operations (sadness), it just seemed the right thing to get a few of us together and collaborate on a theme.
It seemed like a good idea at the time. Remember how I pledged that 2016 will be the year of many style firsts for me? That I would wear not just colour but an entire parade of colours, yes, in the one same outfit? Thus far, I’ve done plaid + polka dots. Then a profusion of I-need-sunnies-look. Married camo + leopard. Even tried my hand at preppy. This time, in honour of the theme, I decided I was going to attempt variations of the one same print namely plaid.
Clearly, I digressed from that concept.
I still did the plaid but mixed it with a grid print and infused some tribal flavour on the footsies.
What can I say. I have more fun when I wing it. Let’s see what the others came up with, shall we?
Dagny reminds me so of Janelle Monáe, and her sense of style is just the loveliest blend of kooky with quirky, beautifully topped off with touches of preppy and mod. I’m trying hard to choose a favourite between her embossed top and those epic lenses.
I don’t know how she does it but Dawn is like supermum and fitness fan and photographer all rolled into. In fact, I think her son Jayden just turned one. I really appreciate how her interpretation of Print Mix isn’t literal. How she’s playing with textures and dimensions here.
‘fessing up. I’ve been in love with Heather’s style since the very first time I saw her at Houston Fashion Week two years ago. Being very new to the blogger scene then, I didn’t have the courage to say hi so HI!! Her clothes speak volumes of her love for all things vintage and whimsical.
This is, by far, my absolute fave outfit. I suppose I could say I’m biased because of Wendy’s animal print coat and that in-your-face fuzzy bag but it’s all good. I acknowledge it 🙂 I adore how everything came together. Truly a wonderland for the eyes.
Brittainy did a really cool job in keeping things sleek and fresh by layering a striped button-down with a tweed-esque sweater. Subtle individually, paired together, the two really create a striking visual. And those boots. And them shades.
And, there’s me. Trying to fly, I think #goofball
