Street Fashion

Olivia 16 Arkansas, USA
I'm cheap. my style evolves from cheap and pulling off unusual outfits by confidence alone. i'd probably get made fun of if i didn't wear my clothes happily. i got my huge sweater vest for $.97, dancing tights for free (i'd wear them as tights but i have an ace bandage on my right ankle), and my button up from gap on sale. i buy really conservative articles of clothing and make them ridiculous.
Sammyjoe 17 OC, USA
I really like fashion. Mixing and matching different patterns, colors, and styles is what I like best. My look is always changing, i like to look girlie and edgy mixed with elegant and hippie. I'm able to shop anywhere and find something i absolutely love. American Apparel, Steve Madden, Forever 21, And small Boutiques make my wardrobe happen.
Lara, 22, from Exeter
Its a mishmash of high street stores like Topshop/H&M, the bat belt, tights and necklaces are from Camden and the shoes (which i love) are from Office. I dont really have a favourite outfit because my style varies all the time...the most consistant look i have is big hair & big lashes, like a doll but very trashy =]
Isabelle 23 Virginia, USA
This is a photo of the best purchase I've made in my life thus far, my faux leopard fur coat. I had been searching for a coat in this style for what felt like ages, before randomly finding it in a thrift store almost two years ago. The best part being, that it only cost 6 dollars! This coat basically sums up my style. I like to wear a lot of layers, but I also like to have individual pieces that are special in and of themselves. I also like things to be inexpensive, but still of a high quality.. kind of a Chanel out of a trash bag thing.
Monica 18 Windsor, Canada
My style is total DIY, as I am the independant designer behind Your Little Monster! I make most of my own clothing, which is usually a juxtapose of interesting fabrics in cute patterns. I like to contrast pretty and girly with edgy and dark.
Angela 24 Phoenix, USA
My favorite outfit ever is my wedding ensemble. I say ensemble because its actually all the pieces put together that made me feel so amazing wearing it. I made the skirt with a friend (we cut out the hot rod flames with an Xacto) and the top is a corset from Fredericks of Hollywood. I got the hat at a bridal store for 50% off because it was damaged, and then I put some Russian netting on it. Voila. $300 wedding outfit!
Alexander 17 Florida, USA
I'm very interested in kitsch and home-made clothing, as well as cyber-punk and steam-punk (post-Victorian) fashions. As for the outfit, I made the T-shirt myself. The pants are manufactured by TRIPP NYC, I believe, and the shoes air Nike dunks (Which I ruined in all of those tomatoes hahaha)
Lindsey 22 Boston, USA
My style is neo rock & roll electro glam. This is my favorite outfit, high waisted blue skinny jeans which I got at hipster's playground vintage.
Tara-Lynn 32 Ontario, Canada
I have two kiddies, so I try to run away from trendy as much as possible. I'm drawn to bold colour & vintage classics. I love accesories, like pendent necklaces, big purses to fit my knitting, earrings & berets. I never take long to get ready, & I hate to look like I tried hard. My fashion inspirations include Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby, & also Shelley Duvall in 3 women
