I found this dress back in October for my sister. I’ll never forget because it was part of a huge haul right before Halloween. It was sold as a costume, despite the fact that it was just simply a vintage dress with a great print. She wore it well!!

  • Vintage 1970s bird print maxi-dress
  • Jonathan Adler tote
  • Zara shoes

Carla Fernandez @ ISGM

I had almost forgotten about this fashion exhibition at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, which is a shame, because not many fashion exhibitions come to Boston. But my friend and fellow classmate J reminded me, so we made a thing out of it. The Gardner is not typically known for having fashion exhibitions, but the Gardner is not your typical museum. I love to visit the Gardner and contemplate Sargent’s El Jaleo (my favorite Sargent painting), but now I had a fashion reason to go.

In my street style sessions with my sister, I’ve been trying to incorporate a more global/ethnic chic sensibility. But it’s not her personal style, so its a challenge. I hope she reconsiders after she sees this blog post.

I’m afraid to admit I hadn’t heard of Carla Fernandez before this exhibition. But I immediately connected with what she she is doing. She immediately became another person on my “This is What I Would Be Doing if I were a Designer/Artist” list. I immediately responded to her colors, textures, styling. Her artisanal approach to fashion and clothing reminded me very much of Zandra Rhodes. At the exhibition I learned that she had a previous Boston/Cambridge connection, lecturing at Harvard & MIT a few years ago. To which J and I responded “how come we weren’t aware of that?” Well, now I’m aware. Very aware. And in the tradition of my compulsive behavior, I want to learn everything about her work. And this is the jump-off.

This small, yet bold exhibition had it all: Fashion, art, a timeline, thoughtful and interesting exhibition design, and videos of the creating process. But best of all, it had a reference table to look at books and try on some of her pieces. Always one to be a participant, I had J try on some of the amazingly crafted wooden bangles.

And of course, I had my OOTD (outfit of the day) moment when I was able to try on one of her simple yet brilliant gourd masks.

I most interested in styling things in unique ways, which includes mixing and matching pieces from different time periods, styles, etc. But There was something about creating this head to toe Alice + Olivia look that made sense.

  • Alice + Olivia tunic dress
  • Alice + Olivia platform wedges
  • Vintage 1980s Italian straw clutch

When I #thrifted these #spanishcombs I was going to frame them. Instead I left them for @mrsmiramenos to wear. Still waiting for the right time to incorporate these into a look for her. But I still think they would look cool framed. #thrift #thrifting #thrifty #thriftshop #thriftstore #thriftscore #thriftlife #thriftstyle #spanishfly #spanishhaircombs #fashionhunter #globalstyle #hairfashion #hairstyle #hairart

I was having difficulty styling this skirt for her. I didn’t want to do something  obvious for summer, like a white tank top. This was also an opportunity to use the sandals that I got for her a while ago that we hadn’t styled yet. So I figured, if there’s winter white, let’s do “summer black”.

  • Forever21 long sleeve T-shirt
  • Marc Jacobs espadrille wedges
  • Vintage 1960s Defan black handbag
