Local artists, photographers, designers and musicians swarmed the Lily Pad in Cambridge last Sunday night to celebrate the launch of a new Boston-based online collaborative arts magazine called Spirited. Boston dandy Mitch Hampton entertained on piano while guests sipped Bols Genever punch and Pretty Things beer, and visiting musicians Faux Fix from New Haven were in attendance to play some new material. There was much fabulous fashion to be had and I narrowed in on three guests I thought had amazing style.

Florals never go out of style, especially in the summer, and this summer, fashionistas and sleek city dwellers are getting daring with their prints.
Brooke Bricen, a 24 year old student at the Tufts Veterinary School, accentuated her long, lean legs with a mini skirt, which she borrowed from a friend, and topped it off with a flowing floral tank top from Marshall’s. The tank top lent a modern twist to the ever popular floral with graphic, bright flowers placed on a black background and loosened up with a voluminous cut and uneven hemline. Her shoes, also from Marshall’s, completed what was a flattering and fun floral ensemble.
Bathing suits and flip- flops aren’t exactly appropriate attire for the workday in the city, but who wants to suffer the heat in an ordinary worksuit? Meire Medeiros found a way to balance work appropriate basics with bright summer pieces to achieve a look that kept her cool in Boston. Easy to do with her sense of fashionable frugality- Meire likes to mix high- end pieces with bargains from stores like Marshall’s and Forever21. This outfit was a culmination of Bebe, Marshalls, Forever, New York & Co., and Aldo. The black pants were the sophisticated anchor to an otherwise airy ensemble.
One of the perks of being a girl is that you can go shopping without spending any money. How? By rifling through the closets of your closest friends, of course!
What better way to fix fashion boredom quickly than to borrow a cute piece from your friends wardrobe?
Lindsey Miller, 19, was lucky when she came from Chicago to visit her friend, Jordan Borkan, 19, in Boston because they not only are the same size, but they both also share them same great taste in clothes.
On the right, Jordan wears a top from Urban Outfitters and a skirt from American Apparel. Lindsey on the left wears a top from 213 and shorts from Forever21. This cute pair stuck out from the many stylish pedestrians on Newbury Street by keeping it cute and cool on a hot summer day.
