FASHION&MY CITY: STERLING STYLE SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT ON SILICON VALLEY FASHION!

The next installment in the Fashion & My City - Combatting Misconceptions Series - The ever stylish Taylor from Sterling Style will be setting the record straight on Silicon Valley!

She will talk about the big misconception, the trend that's taking the town by storm and the go to boutique if you're ever in town.




I live in right in the middle of Silicon Valley in California. Think of San Jose, Sunnyvale, Los Gatos, and Mountain View. This is the hub of technology and innovation. It is a beautiful area to live in and the weather is almost always lovely.

THE MISCONCEPTION:


I think a huge misconception about the area I live in is that fashion isn’t important. Since it’s an hour away from San Francisco it tends to be left out of a lot of cool fashion covered events. I think the problem is that we are known for our technology, but not for our fashion, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have it.



A SPECIFIC TREND YOU'RE SEEING IN YOUR CITY:

A big trend I have been seeing here is leather jacket paired with everything. People are sporting it with skirts, floral dresses with tights, and jeans. It can get chilly, but not freezing here so a light leather jacket is the perfect way to finish your outfit.




A LOCAL DESIGNER OR BOUTIQUE:

A local boutique in Los Gatos called Bella Rose is the perfect little spot to jump in when you are walking downtown. Their whole vibe is to be your most stylish girlfriend’s closet that you can’t help but raid. They carry some of my favorite designers like Camilla and Marc, Elizabeth and James (proof here), Young Fabulous and Broke (proof here), and Milly. Bella Rose also has an eBay store for lightly used clothing from their store. I think that is brilliant. Check it out here.

Anything fashion related that you want more people to know about:

I think that this area is booming when it comes to fashion and I hope that by blogging about trends and events that are going on in town I can help be a part of it. I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else!




Thank you so much to Taylor for telling us about Silicon Valley!
Have you been? Is there anything you would like to add?

Tune in next week for the next installment!
