Oakland Indie Fashion
Early Saturday afternoon, my friend Bree and I went to an open house at Armour sans Anguish. There were racks and racks of beautiful clothes, both vintage stock and AsA's own pieces. I enjoyed looking at all the different fabrics and designs; textile craft is wonderful. Not to mention that everything was on sale!
Bree displaying a pastel AsA crop top for me. I can't help but picture myself wearing it over a swimsuit and cutoffs, hanging out in the sun by a river in Humboldt County. As I've mentioned before, the idea of an outfit can easily sow the seed for a daydream. This particular fantasy is not entirely out of reach--maybe I will cajole X into a mini road trip.
Back to Oakland: two guest artists were set up in the space as well.
Whitney Sharpe of Latch Key showing off her excellently creepy finger necklace, which was modeled on her own pinkie. (See two more photos of Whitney here and here.)
Tawny Holt (the head of Armour sans Anguish) and Kelly Bechtold of Girl on a Motorcycle discussing Instagram tactics, with Kelly's handmade bags behind them.
That's all! I didn't take as many photos as I expected to, but for a good reason--I was distracted by actually being there. What can I say? Life gets the best of me sometimes.
