Reading 2009 – Street Style

I was lucky enough to work at the Reading Festival this year (details on that tomorrow) which also allowed me to do some style snapping. Here are some of my favorites:

There was a lot of the leggings + shirt combos going on but this girl did it especially well and I loved the Misfits shirt. I also loved the cool hippyish chic of the lovely white lace dress mixed with a rough textured sweater. Add vintage brass heart necklaces and its just too perfect! Both good ways to deal with the totally unpredictable weather we had all weekend.

1950’s cool at a festival. Original and sharp! He was even nice enough to let me take a photo while he was snacking on donuts (sorry dude!). I was staring at this girl’s necklace for a long time before asking her where she got it. ‘H&M’ she told me. Man, those guys are on it this season! I never would have guessed it to be high street.

Caught this lovely lady getting her morning coffee early on Sunday. What to say about that top other then its jaw dropping? Her purse was a sweet 50’s collectible, her boyfriend (below left) told me she collects them and he bought her that one for her birthday. Aww!

Sometimes I think the men have it easiest at festivals. Good jeans + check shirt + converse/vans + tousled hair = perfect festival fair.

Reading Trend – Animal Shirts!

This trend has been kicking around East London for months and now its finally reached the masses:

Below is the first (and by far best) animal shirt I found all weekend. Oh my god! SPACE KITTY! This one deserves a close up:

  1. Annnnd big thanks to everyone for letting me know where that shirt can from! Special thanks to my brother Eric, Hi! *waves*. I’m totally going to get on Threadless about reprinting that shirt, we all obviously need one. I want an XL so I can cut out the neck and wear it as a t-shirt dress. Or they could just make it as a t-shirt dress. That would just about make it the greatest piece of clothing EVER.
