Fashion blogger/photographer Scott Schuman graced us lucky D.C.-ians with his fashionable presence over the weekend. I’ve enjoyed The Sartorialist for quite a few years now, so I was superrr excited to hear Scott speak. He has an eye for capturing street style and the essence of the individual. It’s much more than just an outfit– it’s more of a glimpse into someone’s life, and that someone always has a certain je ne sais quoi.
His Q&A and book signing was held at the Art in the Mix Festival, at the Monroe Street Market. Local artists displayed their work, a beer garden provided a tasty spot to dodge the cold, and a great new vintage shop (Analog) offered quirky and unusual finds (seen in my featured image).
It was a perfect combination of art, vintage shopping, and the inspirational words of Scotty.
The vintage boutique:
One of the artist spaces had an interactive exhibit, allowing festival-goers a chance to grab a chunk of the sectioned off wooden art piece and paint it however they desired– such a cute idea.
An artist at work:
To me, the entire last two weeks of October count as Halloween, so I was feelin’ some skeleton tights. I found these on….ebay, of course! The black and white mod dress is from Allegra K; boots are b.o.c. (covered in previous post); sheer shirt tied over dress is H&M; bird scarf is from Rue21; and the Motorcycle-style wool blend jacket is Forever21.
