Fashion is a super volatile part of a culture. It changes from place to place so drastically and fast, it is easy for a foreign to be noticeable (and shocked!). The American East and West Coast are a perfect example of how fashion differences can fit in the same culture as well. Now, from one continent to another, the picture is a bit more complex. It also involves changes regarding habits and perception - body image, and beauty standards too. It's crazy. I hear you!
To save my expatriate ladies some time and energy (and why not bring you some joy and laughter too), here I put myself into decoding the Best of Philly 2015 Fashion, according to the Philadelphia Magazine. This is #1 out of 4 posts that will explain and show you what to expect when and if walking to the top rated stores in town:
VAGABOND • 37 N 3rd St • Boutique • This place has a bohemian soul with a contemporary twist. Here you can find vintage pieces and new clean designs that scream charm; and did I mention they seem to be handpicked and special? Here, take a look inside and check what they had in store for me:
A bit vintage, a bit eclectic, and very modern, these summer outfits show some of the possibilities you can find there.
Because we all need a little black dress...
Just don't put the idea you are making in a box, your possibilities are quite endless if you let their team guide you through styles.
Here is what to expect from my next post and #2 fashion decode... Stay tuned!
