Spring Fashion Style: Triple Denim
What kind of overalls does Super Mario wear?
Denim, Denim, Denim. . . . It’s a joke. Get it? No? Well, unless you played the Super Mario games like I did . . . for hours at a time . . . you probably wouldn’t. It’s a joke that works better in person anyway. Let’s just move on to the fashion, shall we?
I call this look triple denim because I’m covered from head to toe in the material. It’s not overbearing though. The top is made from a lightweight denim fabric keeping the look from skewing toward heavy. The mix of dark and light on the jeans, as well, as the asymmetric length, lets some skin show. Finally, the darker denim of the shoe pulls the eyes down and acts as a balance to the outfit. The different shades of denim and shorter length of the jeans keeps this all denim look fresh for spring, but also keeps you warm for those cooler April days. I’ve added a touch of classic western styling with this metallic silver belt.

Always Uttori: Spring Fashion Shorts, Fresh Air
They say April showers bring May flowers, but today’s look skips the dreary rain and gets right to the bright, fun part of spring. This month, we will be highlighting the mainstays of spring fashion: shorts (Mondays) and denim (Thursdays), while still highlighting some transition wear for the occasional cool day. April is all about looking fresh, like you’ve just emerged from a spring rain (one that doesn’t get you wet, instead you’re all dewy and clean). The stark white and chiffon fabric of the shorts conveys a light and airy feeling, while the floral print on translucent fabric makes it feel like spring is in the air, even if there aren’t actual blooms yet.
By the way, there aren’t a lot of pictures because this is on the old camera, so it’s just hard to get the dpi up. I love this outfit, though, and wanted to make sure it got scheduled.

It’s time to punk-if-y Monday’s dark Victorian romance look. The great thing about punk fashion is that there are so many iterations of it, which lends itself well to customizing punk style to your personal aesthetics. While Victorian style + punk may bring to mind steampunk, if you don’t place too much focus on incorporating retro and steam technology into the outfit, the touch of Victoriana, yields a look that is both fresh and wearable in the every day. Instead of cosplay, the acid washed jeans paired with the frilled Victorian shirt creates an interesting juxtaposition of modern and historic that warrants its own category, hence, Victorian punk, or punk Victoriana.
