I swear next year I’m going to the Afropunk festival. Ever since I saw the documentary a few years back I finally felt like someone made a film about me, and for me that was speaking my language. It’s now become more of a movement and I’ve followed them on Facebook for years it seems. Each year in NYC there is an Afropunk festival that is a display of some of the best rock bands in the music scene. It’s just another wonderful reminder that music has no color and there are still some places where everyone can gather together and celebrate our differences and become connected.
I’ve gathered some of my favorite street style looks from various sites. Each year I’m even more excited to see the style that comes from the festival and this year is no different. I need to do casting here as well, I want to photograph all of these people. Yes, definitely must go next year.

Namibian model Behati Prinsloo has one of the best off duty styles around. Usually found in worn Dr. Martens and a 90s flair, Behati owns this “grown-up Angela Chase” vibe she’s got going on. Now she seems to be more famous for being engaged to Adam Levine, but I just think her style is so fly.

Yes, finally Sean is back with a new set of street style from NYC. Since here in LA we rarely get to enjoy walking outside in big coats and sweaters. Don’t worry there’s more coming soon.

I’m so stoked to bring you another set of awesome street style by Sean in NY. Last week was Fashion Week as I’m sure everyone knows to exhaustion. I feel like this this year there was so much coverage. Here’s what Sean captured during this crazy time of the fashion calendar.

This past weekend was host to Fuck Yeah Fest (FYF) here in LA. Regretfully I didn’t make it this year, but I definitely plan on not missing it next time. I was trolling through the web today and I found some awesome style snaps from the event that I just had to share. If I knew that the style was so 90s and on point I def would have made a journey there just for an inspiration dose alone. Thankfully the nineties are alive and well through the streets of Los Angeles. And I’m lovin it.
I spotted one of our past fashiongrunge editorial models in the bunch too, can you guess which one?

Yes, another edition of our New York street style shot by Sean, our east coast counterpart. Each time I see what is happening in the streets it reminds me of when I used to live there and sit in cafes all day just watching as different lives and styles passed me through the glass. Take a look at life through Sean’s lens.

Normally, the term “pound the pavement” isn’t used in the street style context. However that is exactly what is happening in the streets style-wise all over the world. Pounding with new inspiration for the season ahead. Enough chatter!
We’re just reaching the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend. Finally. There are so many projects going on here and some of them involve a relaxing trip out of town for work. Away from the blooming spring season happening all over we turn to Sean on the East Coast to see what style is happening in New York now.

A few weeks ago I interviewed Gold Fields and reviewed their concert for the site. Ever since then I’ve been spinning their new album pretty ferociously. I thought I would include one of my favs on their album for the inspiration post this week. It’s time for the transitional time in the seasons where the city comes alive again. Trees begin to bloom and colors just seem a whole lot brighter. Hope you’ll feel the changing energy too…

“Fashion Blogs” was one of the first books to really explore the booming industry of fashion blogging. I first heard about this book in 2011 and it was one of the hardest to track down. It sold out faster than anyone could have ever imagined, so I after months of eBay stalking I emerged victorious. It’s great to see that so many of these fire starters of the blogosphere are still going strong.
Since it’s release in 2010 the world of fashion blogging has grown more than anyone expected. This book profiles blogs in different categories; news and views, seen on the streets, personal style diaries, creatures of the night, and what about the boys? Here is one from each section of this truly inspiring book on the beginning of the fashion blog craze.
Fashion Blogs: News and Views- Susie Bubble
Fashion Blogs: Seen on the Streets- The Streets Walker (Israel)
Fashion Blogs: Personal Style Diaries- Alice Point (Poland)
Fashion Blogs: Creatures of the Night- The Cobrasnake (USA)
Fashion Blogs: What About the Guys?- The Dandy Project (Philippines, USA)
