Street Style: Costa Mesa

Buffalo Exchange (3)Welcome to the Sunshine State indeed!  Blame it on the beach, but Costa Mesa in the Fall has been nothing but sunshine. Both our ladies and our fellas have been having a hard time trying to gear up for changing of the leaves or even colder weather, but being creative all at the same time. Female shoppers have been scooping up maxi and midi skirts in all shapes and sizes, from Jersey to chiffon pairing it with sheer blouses in black, taupe, pale pastels and even mint. For those who prefer denim, dark and skinny is what they order, sometimes with a splash of pattern or print and being so close to South Coast Plaza, designer denim is all the rage. When the temperature does cool down, our savvy shoppers layer plaid flannels, striped sweaters, denim jackets, bomber jackets or even the occasional fur vest, which we predict will be a huge sell out come Black Friday. And the fun doesn’t stop there, accessories including anything metallic are a Fall and Winter staple; scarves, shoes and jewelry all have that beautiful metallic sheen. Let’s not forget the feet! Fashionistas always love a great boot and around this time of the year. Brown, black, caramel colors and Army style, Moto style, up to the knees, down to the ankle, you name it, we’ve seen it flying off the shelves. Full Story

Painting Outfits

By Kristen Alfenito, Buffalo Exchange Phoenix

In the world of fashion, it’s easy to skim through a magazine, look through a pinterest board, browse a tumblr account, or read a blog and find inspiration for your own wardrobe. As a visual hoarder and self- proclaimed fashionista, I do these things all too often. Every now and then, however, the art geek in me screams to be appeased. I peruse an art book, a museum, a gallery. These things inspire me more than anything. The following looks were inspired by well- known painted masterpieces.

Painting OutfitStarry Night by Van Gogh

The original:

A piece in oil paints, Starry Night is heavy in texture with deliberate brush strokes. Lyrical lines lend to the piece a sense of movement and the stark contrast between the rich dark hues of blue and green and the bright pale yellow of the moon make this a dynamic piece; one instantly recognized by many.
