Seen about town: Dudes

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

There is not much to say about dudes except that they are.

Seen About Town: Head to toe

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Oh, this lady was so perfect.  She really did not like being on the bus, it did not seem up to her standards.

Okay, so Tilda Swinton-style androgyny is great and hot and woo.  But I am kind of a bigger fan of the meatier/less editorial rock androgyny.  Because I can’t draw well enough, let me lay out a couple things for you: amazing legs, which is not what you normally see encased in skinny jeans (which emphasise shapeless stick-ness); that 1980’s butt-rock, mullet-evolved haircut that was worn by dudes and ladies; probably the only faux-worn denim dye job that I’ve ever liked; perfectly executed use of hot pink.

Seen About Town: Wearing what you damn well please

I have a notebook from the Dollar Tree that says “Fashionista” on it and is the silliest pink. This is where my commuting sketches go now, as it is perfectly appropriate.


I see this girl pretty regularly and I think she was dressed up that day. Hella rocked it though.


She made her train, by the way.

Seen About Town: Layers

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

What I liked most about this outfit was that, if it got colder, she could un-scrunch the leggings and cover her knees.  And if it got warmer, she could take off the sweater and go with the tank underneath.  Surprisingly few people seem to dress for the severe weather changes the NW early summer brings.

This guy was just great.  I have been in the shops that awesome Mexican men go to and I still don’t know where the hell they pull out the purple jeans.

And bless windbreakers.  Those seem to have gone the way of the brontosaurus.  They were these things that we all grew up with and are now just endless printed hoodies and those jackets from Columbia Sportswear or somewhere sporty/technical.
