I don’t know where you live but I live in LA and the weather has been CRAZY these days! Cold like it’s Canada one moment and hot like it’s Miami the next. I don’t even know how to dress for the weather anymore because it keeps changing on me! I packed away all my summer clothes already but should I bring them back out? Well, this Barbie Clone Zipper Tank in Dimepiece Designs is perfect whether the weather is hot or cold. It’s extra baggy so it’ll be breezy for the hot days but the black and white minimalist side makes it good for layering during the colder times. Sure a bunch of doll heads on your shirt could seem a little creepy but people would definitely remember your shirt.
I don’t think Hello Kitty can ever go out of style. I think Ray Bans eventually will, capris have already been there, done that, and purple is apparently the new pink which was apparently the new black. But Hello Kitty, that’s a classic that will stay with girls age 5 to 50. That’s why I would totally rock this Floral Heather Grey Tank by Hello Kitty by Public Library. You got the Kitty looking all distressed- in a totally cool way, of course. The tank is comfortable to wear and would look good anywhere. I’m thinking I would layer it with comfy cardigans just in time for Fall. Kitty’s coming out to play!
Harajuku Lovers always comes up with the cutest stuff. Like this pink “Rainbow Love” tank top. It’s soft and comfortable. The front logo isn’t too flashy, just the right amount of color and boldness to catch your eye. There’s also the tag going down the back, a detail some tank tops don’t have.
If you’re going for a casual look that says you’ve got some steeze, this is more than enough.
I don’t care how old you are, Hello Kitty rules. It was fashionable when you were 5; it’s fashionable now. You can wear it as jewelry, on your bag, or as a shirt.
Like this “SO Cute” top and tank from Mighty Fine.
It comes as a 2-in-1 set, so you can either wear the pieces separately, together, or with something else. The racerback tank has black and colored hearts splattering the front and back with Hello Kitty’s cute face snuggled between them. You can pull over it a white crop top tee with Kitty chillin’ on your chest.
Cute, casual, fun.
I love graffiti. I think it’s one of the most unappreciated art forms, and I desperately wish that I was capable of tagging. Scrawl my name in colors on billboards and trucks and trains.
Not that I am promoting vandalism.
One way to enjoy political art without getting into trouble with the cops is with this Harajuku Lovers “Rock & Roll” slouch tank. It has the logo stylishly running down the back on a femme flower pattern, perfect for summer. On the front is a bold sketch of a glam girl (could it be Joan Jett?), and it comes with a yellow bandeau to be worn together or separately.
Artsy and cute? I’m down.
As some of you may know, Audrey Magazine was named after our publisher’s daughter. James Ryu started the publication in 2002, inspired by his young American-born daughter, and wanting to provide a magazine that reflected not just faces like hers, but the unique bicultural world in which she lives and will grow up.
It doesn’t hurt that the name “Audrey” also references one of the most stylish and elegant women in American history. I first became obsessed with Audrey Hepburn in the ’90s when I discovered Roman Holiday. I devoured all her films, biographies and especially the clothes. I even dressed up as Holly Golightly one Halloween … back when I still dressed up for Halloween.
Now that strong eyebrows and winged eyeliner and pixie cuts are making a huge comeback, Audrey is more relevant than ever. And beyond her beauty and sophistication, towards the latter half of her life, Audrey Hepburn dedicated herself to the children of the world as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador. That’s something all of us, including Audrey, can aspire to.
