The Sunset Boulevard….Come as you are !

Sunset Boulevard at night brings all of the elements of style together in one gothic, off-beat,

and upscale buffet.

Most men prefer to keep things simple, slipping into a pair of skinny jeans with a black t-shirt. Leather was popular, but mink and fur chose to show up here and there as well.

Ozzy Osbourne made an appearance a few times during the night, draped head to toe in black overcoat, jeans and t-shirt, buckling the whole ensemble together with a belt, in black of course.

Black boots were carrying people to and fro throughout the bustling night. And club-goers invited short dresses and high heeled pumps along for the ride. Grunge got in too, lurking in the dark corners, waiting to be offered a drink by full body leotards that were see through in all the right places.

Everyone is invited to the Boulevard at night, and the invitation almost always says… come as you are!

Press that suit and shine those shoes, because throwbacks to the Rat Pack are all the rage. Most men spotted in this upscale district were wearing suits in dark colors, white dress shirts and skinny ties. A few topped it off with the classic Fedora, but the hairstyle of choice seemed to be that late fifties crop cut with a spike in the front.

Women seem to like to flaunt a little flirt, showing skin in at least one part of their body. Soft spring dresses that button up the front were a favorite, kept short showing lots of leg. Other women preferred to keep the bottom covered and chose the bare arm or off the shoulder look instead. Sleeveless was popular with almost all of the ladies.

And there were even a few who looked a little rebellious, covering their arms but wearing short shorts that stopped neatly in a rolled cuff. Almost all the women kept their handbags in minimal proportions, and liked the earth tone shades. Men, if they carried a bag, usually toted a knapsack in black, with a broad and bright design element for all to see.

Celebrating Downtown Artwalk!

Downtown ArtwalkTo experience this event in its true nature, you must breathe in not only the artistic creations on the palettes and mediums in front of you, but on the people attending the event.

Styles from casual chic to bohemian filled the streets of this inspiring celebration. Jeans were on the scene flanking the bottom half of men throughout Artwalk. Many chose to keep it classic and top their denim off with a simple black pocket tee and beanie.

Artwalk6Others went for the new grunge look of plaid over a tee-shirt. And even though the temperatures were rather warm, we saw some men decide to finish off their sturdy slacks with a leather bomber jacket.

Shoes on the men ranged from funky flight boots in a splash of colors, to the always apropos black Converse All-Stars. Ladies chose to outfit their feet in more traditional simple flats or low wedge heels. Pumps were not in attendance for the most part. The girls glammed up their jeans with sweaters, off-the shoulder shirts, and embroidered linen tops. Although neutral seemed to steal the show as the color of the night in outerwear, some women mixed and matched sporty trench coats with indi dresses that stopped tastefully just above the knee.

Artwalk2Clubwear was decorating many of the artists themselves. From tie-dye tee shirts to accessories like beads, caps and scarves, men displayed an eclectic choice of fashion everywhere you went. Ladies preferred to emphasize their ensembles with trendy handbags and most opted for the contemporary oversized purses. Buckles and snaps shimmered and shined from the shoulders of most women at the showing.
Special thanks to Aline Media for inviting us to their fabulous Fashion/Art event.
