Moda Urbana 7.21.09: Fun with scarves

A scarf in the dead of summer is a very bold fashion statement. Kudos to Cynthia the intern who chose to wear her grandmother’s scarf as an accent to an otherwise inappropriate office dress, the tube top dress. See how Cynthia drapes the scarf in a long circular way, blocking the eye from cleavage while dressing up a very casual outfit. This girl has fashion sense and elegance.-Lisa Degliantoni

Moda Urbana: El Paso’s Great Gatsby

It’s that time of year when boys wear light suits, but white suits? Our very ambitious intern, Victoria Molinar, grabbed this photo of City Council Rep. Beto O’Rourke during today’s City Council meeting lunch break. We have only one thing to say about this outfit: what’s up with the shoes, Mr. Gatsby?

6.24.09: correction: our facebook friends pointed out that city rep beto o’rourke’s suit is a butter cream, not white. will update blog and apologies to global fashionistas and fbfs.

Moda Urbana 6.15.09 Crinoline+Rhinestones

by Jessica Escalante

I spotted these two sisters downtown on Saturday night. I thought they looked like dolls. I love how they kept their tops basic and let the skirts give the WOW factor. I also love the rhinestone detailing on the gray skirt. Crinoline+Rhinestones=F-U-N!

These two were NOT on their way to Alfresco Fridays, but were caught in the vicinity. Not only does he have a hairdo, so does she. Not all couples can hit the streets looking chic simultaneously; These two did. Photograph by Cassandra Davisson.

Moda Urbana 6.1.09: Cute Moms

I totally believe that staying cute and stylish after you have children is very difficult, if not darn near impossible. So how excited was I when I stumbled upon this cute mom at a school picnic! She topped off her outfit with a hat that has been run over “more times than my heart.” The pants are a cotton, linen blend from Chico’s $19! Kudos to this mom of two that is keeping it real and leaving the house looking chic! -Lisa Degliantoni

As I was leaving dinner on Friday evening, I spotted this bold gentleman in the parking lot. The first thing that caught my eye was his outfit. I love how he played down his formal-esque vest/white shirt combo with some jeans and sneakers. The second thing, his BIG TEXAS HAIR! What do you guys think? –Jessica Escalante
