Parking Lot Summer Vintage Sale – Aug 13

Leigh and Mercedes

On my way out of Planet Coffee after being unable to get a proper wi-fi connection, I spotted Leigh and Mercedes sipping on their coffee. They were great to take a picture of because they were okay with getting up off their seats in order for me to get the full outfit (yes some people hate this!). They also happen to look like they just walked out of a vintage shop with perfectly coordinated outfits.

Leigh’s beret and shades remind me of a young Yoko Ono. If you take a closer look, she has also matched her scarf to the colours of her tattoos. HYPE.

I love the boots Mercedes is wearing and she manages to match the patterns on her outfit correctly. Complimentary patterns is an obstacle for some (see article on bad style and management students).

I also want to salute these girls on their courage for wearing boots in the summer heat. PROPS homies.

Will it ever stop? yo I don’t know…turn off the lights and I’ll glow

95% of this website’s readership can finish that line… so JUST DO IT! I loved these pants, they were so hype. It reminded me of the days when I had PUMP on my Reeboks and MC Hammer was not a one hit wonder but he was on the charts! Props, I just wish I took this picture while she was also wearing her Nike high tops!
