My apologies to Rosa, the German exchange student I photographed last Thursday. It's been a hectic weekend, so I'm just now uploading.
Rosa gets fashion inspiration by watching what people on the street are wearing. Apparently we're similar in more than just name!
Today I slipped into a classroom about a minute before the session started, and was able to get a quick photo of Nateasa. The scarf with bright earth colors atop the mustard sweater makes me think of sumac leaves turning red against a tallgrass backdrop.
Nateasa works at RSVP, a stationery shop on Iowa City's Northside. I'll have to check it out!
Jenny had another very cute ensemble. She managed to pick several statement pieces and combine them in a way that enhanced, rather than detracted from, each other. Jenny says she likes to go for a youthful look, but she's pulled it off in a way that it still looks sophisticated.
Finally, a lady at TSpoons Cafe in the mall exemplifies the rustic dignity of a military-inspired look.
She puts me in mind of a '40s bomber pilot. Not that I'm a militarist by any stretch, but I can't help my aesthetic attraction to the fashion version of military wear. I especially love the buttons!
