We asked San Francisco stylist and blogger Catie Nienaber of Cuffington to take $20 on a hunt for spring wearables at local thrift and vintage shops, combine the spoils with items from her own trove of stylish gear and deliver the fruits of the adventure to us in photographic form. We’re thrilled with the results.
On a rain-filled week, we’re letting a little sun shine in, thanks to Alex Keenum and Amy Soderlind of Refuses to Label. For this shoot, the stylish duo ventured to the Marina district, where Amy posed in a thrifted camel suede skirt and vintage black platform booties,a cropped grey t-shirt by American Apparel, H&M faux fur vest and Spanx tights.
But for the black scarf, a $5 purchase from H&M, the outfit donned by Alex of Refuses to Label is vintage head-to-toe and, we think, an excellent portrait of San Francisco style.
We recently we sent SF Indie Fashion contributor Kristina Wang out with $40 and a simple mission: thrift, style, shoot. Her destination of choice: Wasteland in the Upper Haight.
