Fashionista Friday: Funky. Fresh. Creative. Fashionista.

I discovered the funky fresh ¬†fashionista in today’s edition of Fashionista Friday on Instagram just flipping through the #MyGoodwillFind hashtag. What caught my eye instantly was her incredible eye for mixing patterns and textures in an almost artist like fashion. I’ve actually seen paintings that resemble her style sensibilities – look up Mickalene Thomas’s art […]
