Thrifted: Shake Your Pom Poms

Shake Your Pom Poms--There's nothing wrong with being trendy some times! That's why trends are called trends. This outfit proves that statement| gutterfashion.com

There’s nothing wrong with getting a bit trendy every now and then. I even have a few garments in my closet which, while once not considered trendy, now are in style. That’s the beauty of fashion. One day your favorite skirt is just that. The next day it’s in all of the local retailers. You can’t avoid trends because you’ll inevitably be a part of one, whether you intended to or not. So, if you’re like me and aren’t a trendy person, embrace […]

Thrifted: You Win Some, You Lose Some

You Win Some, You Lose Some--I think it's time we bring the sporty look to high fashion, starting in the streets.| gutterfashion.com

Activewear and sportswear are two things that you haven’t really seen thrown around in the fashion world until recently. In today’s market, however, you can walk into any major department store and see athleisure wear draped on mannequins and dress forms. Can I personally say why this is? I’m not entirely sure. But I have a feeling it’s because of our fitness-obsessed culture and our never ending pursuit of comfort. These days, you don’t have to be sporty and active to dress like you are. I constantly […]

Thrifted: Overall Of This Weather

Overall Of This Weather--Not sure how to dress in this very unpredictable weather? That's okay neither am I! Check out this 70's inspired overall look.| gutterfashion.com

At this point, winter doesn’t even exist. There have been so many warm days that we might as well just call this pre-spring. With the warmer, unpredictable weather upon us, we are forced to crack open the spring vault and figure out what pieces to integrate into our current wardrobe. Sometimes you find a forgotten piece about which will really work; others are too warm for this unseasonable weather. All we can do is hope for better days, and for the weather to be seasonally appropriate, just like we must be. The […]

Thrifted: Hard Rock, Soft Rock

Hard rock, soft rock--There's nothing more exciting for a winter look than a denim and fur vest mix. Can anyone say "classic rock"| gutterfashion.com

“It’s a juxtaposition between hard and soft.” “I mixed hard and soft for this look.” I’m sure you have heard these two phrases, and other variations on them, a million times. But what do these phrases mean and why does everyone keep saying it? In most cases, “mixing hard and soft” means taking two things that are stereotypically masculine (rough and aggressive to the eye) and feminine (delicate and inoffensive to the eye) and throwing the two together to create something new. It truly is one of my favorite things to do in terms […]

Thrifted: More Layers Than An Onion

More layers than an onion--I don't think I've ever put together a more 90's grunge/gutter look than this ome.| gutterfashion.com

When the cold weather hits, layering up isn’t just an option, it’s mandatory. If you’re not fully prepared for this weather, you will most certainly be left an icicle by the frigid, devastatingly cold winds. I guess if that’s your thing, then it isn’t that big of a deal. Personally, though, I like to be able to move all of my body parts without them falling off. So this winter, while planning your outfits, don’t follow the usual “less is more rule.” More is always more in this […]

Thrifted: The 80’s Called, They Want Their Denim Back

The 80's Called--You'll look like you walked right out of 80's rock video in this street fashion look.| gutterfashion.com

You should never go into any photoshoot with preconceived notions or “I’m not going to budge for anything” plans, because they always change. That’s the beauty of it all. Spontaneity is a big thing I strive for in my blog shoots and that’s why I always have so much fun. Take deep breaths in between pictures and remember to always enjoy yourself. People can tell when you’re unhappy in your photos. This jacket has quickly become a new favorite with my friends, strangers, and personally. It’s not […]

Thrifted: Goth Gone Batty

Goth Gone Batty--An stylish and edgy goth look| gutterfashion.com

This look definitely isn’t weather appropriate, but that’s okay! It’s a cute outfit to wear and to look at, so does anything else REALLY matter? That’s why coats were invented. When I say I was freezing my ass off taking these photos, I mean I was literally a walking icicle. I had to continually run inside in between photos because it was that cold out. I persevered, however, because there was no way the frigid weather was going to […]

Thrifted: Vintage Western Vibes

Vintage Western Vibes--Showing off a vintage western inspired look| gutterfashion.com

Vintage western looks are not something I’ve ever played around with much. It’s not my usual thing, and I’ve always had a fear of people taking me seriously. I feel like if I walked out of the house in cowboy boots and a Dolly Parton top, people might think I actually dress like this on a regular basis. However, my view on this style has drastically changed. If people took me seriously, so what? I’m in on the joke, […]

Thrifted: A Pop Of Color

A Pop Of Color--An otherwise all black outfit with just the right pop of color| gutterfashion.com

When I buy garments for my wardrobe, I’m always keeping my eye out for eccentric and functional pieces. I need something that not only fits my tastes but something that feels great on my body too. You’ll never catch me wearing an article of clothing that clings to my skin, unless it’s a pair of jeans/leggings. The rest of my body does not look flattering in an entirely skin tight outfit. The other day, I was having a long […]

It’s time to break out your knitted cardigans and your fuzzy sweaters, folks: fall is here. During this season, you’ll see lots of layering and heavyweight pieces that may have been hidden in the back of some fashionista’s closets. Many of you have fully made the transition from summer attire to fall but there are a few stragglers that are still clutching onto their crop tops. Listen people, it’s time to let summer go! Fall is in full swing […]
