street style series

whenever i go to new york fashion week, people ask me if i am there for my day job (modcloth) or for my blog. i never know quite how to answer because it’s a very happy mix of the two. i tend to opt for 12 – 14 hour days so i can fit in every single thing i could dream of doing while there like going to shows, visiting designer’s studios, going out to lunch with friends, repeat. this time around, i worked on a series of street style videos for the modcloth blog in addition to all of my running around, but it hardly felt like work because i got to pick out all of our interviewees, a bunch of cool girls i know who i think have interesting perspectives on personal style and the fashion industry at large. between takes, i managed to snap some photos of these amazing and talented women.

all photos where shot by me, some were originally published on the modcloth blog. you should watch their video interviews, too!

festival style at outside lands

calivintage: festival style at outside lands

over the weekend, i had the opportunity to attend outside lands to shoot festival style in collaboration with free people. i spent three days with julia, their senior writer, wandering the festival grounds in search of cute girls sporting chic festival style.  if you venture over to the free people blog you can see my photos from day one, day two, and day three of the festival.

but as a little bonus, i actually managed to snap so many photos that i was able to save a little set to share with you here as well! i read in the news that there were over 200,000 people in attendance at the festival. and it was certainly fun to have the pleasure of people-watching for those three long days, so here are a few more looks that caught my eye among the crowds.

calivintage + project urban renewal: vintage street style

calivintage: street style at the alameda flea market

finally! another round of street style photos! for this set, i was contacted by the lovely ladies of project urban renewal, an upcoming collection of vintage apparel and accessories coming soon to urban outfitter’s space 15 twenty in los angeles. they had seen some of the photos i’d taken at the alameda flea market and asked if i’d be interested in doing a little guest post featuring some of the vintage styles i’ve seen there. since i go there every month to hunt for treasures, i was happy to bring my camera with me to look for new street style subjects. these photos were taken last month at the alameda point antiques faire, and if you like them, get excited, because i was just there again yesterday and got a huuuge set of new photos coming soon. but in the meantime, be sure to check out my guest post at space 15 twenty.

street style at outside lands, days two and three

calivintage: street style at outside lands

and just as quickly as it came, outside lands has drawn to a close. these are some more of my favorite street style shots from saturday and sunday at the festival. it was so crowded on the weekend days, that getting a decent shot was actually pretty challenging, but i still spotted plenty of fashionable festival-goers. just like last time, you can see many more of the bohemian styles i shot for free people on their blog: day two and day three.

i can’t express how fun of an experience it really was to watch all of the people pass by with their own unique personal style and to be able to take photos to document that moment in time. this is actually getting me really excited for new york fashion week, where i hope to snap even more street style photos!

calivintage + free people at outside lands, day one

outside lands 1

this weekend, the outside lands festival has taken over san francisco. i’m not a huge festival-goer, but when free people asked me if i’d like to go with them to shoot street style, i jumped at the opportunity. i love to shoot street style photos and it’s such a pleasure to observe the diverse array of styles that girls are wearing, whether on the street or at an event like this. on the first day, i definitely noticed the trends for this chilly summer festival: boots are a requirement, and if you’re smart, you’ll also opt for tights and a sweater or a pair of jeans!

these were some of my favorite looks, but i seriously took so many photos that i couldn’t share them all. you should definitely check out the free people blog for more of the photos that i took (including a shot of vanessa hudgens)! and expect more to come! there are still two days left of the festival!
