Snap Judgment: Sew Up Your Own Piece X Piece

Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: make your own recycled fashion statement for a song with the new Piece X Piece and McCall’s Tunic pattern, $9.66, which will land those with sewing chops a versatile tank based on the San Francisco label’s eco-friendly designs.

Spotted (SF Street Style): Eclectic Blue

Spotted: San Francisco blogger Punam, at the Space Gallery’s City Dolls trunk show, scoring some sweet jewelry at the Polk Street sale while donning a cream turtleneck, blue vintage sweater with cutouts and sequin detailing, black motorcycle inspired lace-front boots and chunky statement bracelets for the finishing touch.

How does this local style blogger (who writes at Nothing Broken) describe her personal style?

“Lots of vintage. Sometimes I’m dressed like a drag queen, sometimes I’m dressed like a prep, and other times I’m dressed like MC Hammer,” she tells us.

Her favorite places to shop in the city? A girl after our own hearts, she loves to peruse a combo of Goodwill, trade shows, pop-up shops, clothing-by-the-pound and anywhere that doesn’t have an official cash register.
