Sammy Dress 'n Street Fashion

I remember the first time I discovered Asian street fashion. Oddly enough, it wasn't in a magazine (you know, when magazines were actually a source of fashion inspiration) or on a website. Barnes and Noble had a Fruits book with incredible snapshots of kids on the iconic streets of Tokyo. Kids who were just hanging out, being badass, adorable or wacky. So, naturally, I was stoked to grab some cute threads from Sammy Dress last week. Scrolling through their website reminds me of the first time I found that fashion book. There's something about Asian street fashion that's completely fearless. I don't hesitate when throwing outfits together. Mixing colors, patterns and whimsical phrases- anything goes.

Thanks for amping up my creativity again, Sammy Dress. If you feel like you're in a fashion rut, just page through the site. Even the product and lifestyle shots are like a shot of sugar to your fashion blood. Fashion blood. Now there's a phrase.

And who could resist a hoodie stamped with the demand Stop Killing Whale on it?
