Hey good people in my travels through out the city I run into many stylish folk. These individuals usually stand out to me for a myriad of reasons…. it could be their spin on a vintage staple made modern, their shade of lipstick, their funky hair or anything just as audacious and bold as I am.
I like to call these stylish freaks BAD ASS’!
My latest picks for BAD ASS’ of DC STREET CHIC.
This is Mr. Ronald Bankett, jazz musician and avid vintage enthusiast.
I discovered him while visiting the bar at Warner Theater during Ledisi’s concert on Friday. My favorite spot in any venue. He was as sharp as a knife and as witty as snap crackle and pop!
His entire outfit was vintage. Get a load of his crocodile clutch. Can I say I want it. His mustard cowhide bomber jacket any wife would kill to covet it for her beau!
I love to meet stylish folk who don’t take themselves to serious. In addition to trading vintage store secrets, I got invited to his closet and home for dinner. Don’t be jealous. I may bring my video cam along for the experience, stay tuned.
Thanks for chatting with me Ronald!
This young lady at the Hirschorn After Hours was partying so hard I wasn’t able to catch her name. If you look closely you will see her dope vintage inspired tee by American Eagle paired with a reoccurring trend on the runways ” sequins”. Her skirt is kick ass to be worn day(with chemise or girlie bow blouse and or cardigan) or at night with a simple, chic black body suit, YOU CAN add a motorcycle jacket for a BAD ASS curb appeal!
Maggie Michael (the back of her card reads MM, really!) BTW, her eyes are a mesmerizing.
Maggie works in Art & Propositions (you figure it out.)
While Maggie and the crew were decked out in the cities casual night look: jeans and hot accessories better known as each other….
Well, well, what can I say about these 3 Musketeers? They were a hoot to chat with. It’s rarity that you find fabulously cool people all in one bunch.
Kriston Capps is an Architect and that wasn’t hard to figure out once looking at his perfectly groom hair with each bang strand in order. Not to mention his cast on his hand also decorated by himself. He is a freelance graphic designer, too. I totally have a crush on his CAST…..shhh.
I must admit I love his shag do. He reminds me Jack Nicolson in the Shinning! I had to flash him to get this amazing smile..did I say that? smile.
