Oh, the land of stylish, good looking people- San Francisco! Can I just say, I feel extremely cut off by the rest of the world now that I know how well dressed some parts of it are!? I'm from Portland where it's the cool thing to wear the same flannel, skinny jeans and converse everyday. BUT WAIT, there is more! A few years back when I started this blog, it was because it helped open my eyes to to all kinds of fashions from all around the world. But I had never really been to a city with such a concentrated amount of well dressed human beings. People knew I was a foreigner, as I was gawking at everyone I saw. I was asked if I needed directions 3 times within 2 hours. But my eyes have been open! I was a little intimidated by all the pretty people, and I wish I had more time to watch them.
Chinatown, not my favorite. Castro district- I fit right in. Everyone here in little old Corvallis who makes fun of me for wearing denim on denim, LET ME TELL YOU WHO'S BOSS. If only I had known, I wouldn't have cooled it down with the white denim, I would have went all the way! Not only that, but my leopard print flats were a hit. I was still straight when I left, but I would have been okay either way.
Moving on, it was foggy the whole day we went to take photos by the Golden Gate bridge, so nothing amazing came from that. I visited Haight Ashbury which is where I felt most comfortable. Plenty flannel, 90's velvet dresses, and dirty hair. Bunches of little shops reminded me of all the little hole in the wall commercial/residential streets in Portland. I wish I could have hung around there longer, but we were in a rush to get someplace else for the night.
All in all, I really enjoyed the city. It gave me some fresh inspirations I am sure to use in upcoming projects. Now I am stuck here, left to be repeatedly disappointed in some peoples clothing choices. But who am I to complain? It entertains me.
