street style: university

November 14, 2012 |

I spotted Portia, a hairdresser, while she was outside taking smoke break. I loved her nonchalant attitude and the small details that turned a plain, all-black uniform into something memorable: ripped (and cuffed!) jeans, an off-the-shoulder top, and a big pendant necklace. Her tattoos (so ubiquitous in Tucson—I love it) added a nice touch, too, as does her bold (but not overdone) eye makeup. (And, yes, she’s wearing flip flops. Sometimes, occasionally, flip-flops don’t suck. I’ve never claimed to be consistent! You might even call me a… flip-flopper… on the issue!*)

*I am so, so sorry. The puns! Aghhh, they’re terrible.
