Street Style: Shadow Dancing

By Kestrel Jenkins

“Your life will be transformed when you make peace with your shadow. The caterpillar will become a breathtakingly beautiful butterfly.” -Debbie Ford in Dark Side of the Light Chasers 

Our style icon Bianca looks stunning in her most recent shift-of-the-seasons look. For Bianca :: “this look brings to mind the nostalgia, intrigue and romanticism of another era. In this hat, I embrace the darker, cooler side of my personality: introspective and androgynous, solemn, passionate. An adventurer at

heart, I imagine myself to be a character in a period piece, perhaps a detective or secret agent.”

Hats always add a shadowed layer to our everyday aesthetic :: we love noticing beautiful souls who embrace every angle of their personalities, shadows and all.
