Kill City is an LA based punk inspired apparel brand producing top to bottom fashion. The lookbook caught my eye first, with it’s Neil Krug influenced images transporting these edgy styles into a desert dreamscape. This is their first season and there are more than a few pieces that have caught my attention. Check out more of their gear here.
Kelly Shaw has our attention. This young designer from the UK has something special going on here, on so many levels:
1. She’s pulling together Grayson Perry, the Occupy movement, The London Riots, fashion from in between WW1 + 2, and George Orwell, into one eclectic contemporary blend of patterning, color, and design.
2. Her design screams, “Lighten the fuck up!” She’s playing with silhouettes that shouldn’t work together. She’s having fun and looks gorgeous on so many levels.
3. She’s launching her Spring/Summer 2013 Collection right around the corner and she hasn’t held back with anything. Her messages are clear and we have a feeling this line will make some serious noise, if it hasn’t begun to already.
Hey all you Witness This readers! How goes it? Let me start this post by kindly introducing myself. My name is Erica, I live in the beautiful town of Cardiff by the Sea, and I just turned the fabulous age of 26. I love love love fashion, always have and definitely always will. I started creating things when I was just a kid; think purses made from Vintage Harley Davidson tees (using a glue stick & craft scissors of course), and from that point on I knew that creativity & fashion would always be a part of who I am. I went to school for fashion merchandising and now spend my fabulous days freelance blog writing, shopping, creating, and of course- running my own site, Fashionlushxx.
I put together this post for all of you to let you in on some of my favorite summer look’s here in sunny San Diego! Hope you all enjoy & be sure to check out Fashionlushxx for outfit posts, trend reports, and a bunch of great DIY projects!
Little Black Dress for all seasons: I love black, and I don’t care what season it is- it is always acceptable to me (especially when in the form of a LBD). For the summer season, a flowy black frock with a bit of lace like the one you see me wearing above or a black maxi dress will be perfect additions to your summer wardrobe. See the full look here.
Tribal Prints: This trend has taken over, and I can’t seem to get enough of it. Here you see me rocking a tribal print mini skirt with a clashing (yet still matching) tribal print cross body bag and an oversized, super soft, Brandy Melville tee. This look is great for a day at the beach or even shopping with your friends. See the full look here.
Floral Denim: Once summer hits, the time comes to pull out all of your adorable Daisy Dukes, but don’t let them get stale. When you have over worn your favorite denim shorts, mix things up with a fun pair of floral print shorts instead. Added points? Pair your floral print shorts with stripes for a perfectly mismatched look! See the full look here.
Light & Lovely Layers: Summer days are always so nice, but when heading into evening layers are the way to go! For an edgy, yet boho, look- layer a fringe kimono with a motorcycle inspired leather jacket. Leather isn’t too heavy; so it’s the perfect add-on to a summer time outfit. Check out the full look here.
Don’t Forget your Belt: Belts are the perfect addition to any outfits. At least I think so. Lately I am loving the whole “boyfriend belt” trend, which is basically wearing an extra long belt (maybe even your boyfriends) and looping it around itself. This trend looks great when you pair it with a girly floral print skirt, a fun maxi dress, or even a pair of skinny jeans with a half-tucked in t-shirt. See the full look here.
Loving these prints from the newly released Opening Ceremony x Adidas collaboration.
Everytime I go to Opening Ceremony in LA I’m tripping out on how well dressed the employees that work their are. I find that some of the best dressed people are those who work on the floors of our favorite stores. This is a collection highlighting the employees of Opening Ceremony and what they are wearing. This is the first of many features where Witness This will pay homage to the best dressed employees of the different stores around the world we love.
If you have a store you love, and you think the people who work there have great style, send us in photos of those people (1 or even 20) and we’ll feature that store and the people who work their on Witness This. If you don’t trust yourself with a camera and want us to go shoot the store and the people ourselves, let us know! Boutique’s, second hand, department stores, it doesn’t matter. This is about the people who work there who pride themselves on their style.

As we continue to follow Lifetime Collective from Vancouver, they continue to dial in both men’s and women’s fashion. Today is about the girls and Three Monkeys (a Montreal based store) favorite Spring 12 picks. Mike Casali shoots Lifetime’s Spring 12 Line with model Steph Macmillan, add in a perfectly merchandised dose of Brixton and you get a damn sexy set of photos highlighting two brands we love.
