Hi, friends! I’m Tricia, and it’s very exciting to be a guest blogger on Masters of Fashion. I am not getting a Master’s degree in fashion (far from it…I recently finished my Master’s degree in international public health), but I have known Tiffa since I was a wee one and lived with her past year. This relationship has instilled upon me the confidence to wear whatever I want, and a desire to avoid looking aesthetically insulting. In my spare time, I run http://stickersanddonuts.com/ and collect pictures of sad animals here: http://humiliatedanimals.tumblr.com/. I also make hair accessories for my etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/anandamides), a project that’s currently on hold because I unexpectedly moved across the country a couple of weeks ago! For those of you who have a short chipmunk attention span like me, this is a brief summary of myself:
- My teal moscot glasses
- Trader joe’s dark chocolate salted caramel bars
- My banjolele
- Metal riffs and loud music
- Stirrup leggings
- Fabric print with colored brush strokes and streaks/tiger strips of white slashed through the print. You know what I’m talking about.
- Flip flops
- The person who stole my new iPod touch last week.
The picture above is from THREE weekends ago-my first weekend back in Baltimore after doing fieldwork in Vietnam and being unemployed in California. Despite my heightened ability to handle cold weather from years spent living in Illinois and upstate New York, I was still extra sensitive to the “nice” weather in Baltimore. Thus, I met Tiffa and Marielle in Fells Point buttoned up in a navy Anthropologie/Cartonnier Easton Cropped Peacoat and knuckle tattoo mittens by Father Panik. These mittens are my favorite thing to wear in the winter, and having missed out on all the cold weather in Vietnam/California, I resolved to wear my mittens even if it was 70 degrees. The champagne-colored lace shorts are by Collective Concepts from Piperlime, which I wore over legging tights from H&M. My shoes are ASOS’ Aiden leather lace up brogue boots, which have unfortunately seen better days, and perhaps makes me like them more. So I can remain dark and moody despite the cheery Baltimore sun rays, I am hiding behind prescription Ray-Ban New Wayfarers. The scarf is from H&M, and the bag is from dubious origins in Vietnam.
