Skunkfunk Fashion Show

I was thrilled to be part of Skunkfunk’s fashion soiree at the Mission store in San Francisco, CA for their 2012 spring – summer line.  It was a lively event with models, a DJ, adult beverages and fabulous clothes. I have been a fan of Skunkfunk for many years; loving their hip and fashion forward clothing and accessories with an added bonus, a conscious. (click here and here for previous posts on Skunkfunk)

When I arrived at the store, I was led to a room in the back where the sample pieces were hanging.  I couldn’t wait to try them all on; everything was gorgeous. Sadly, all the sample sizes were a size 2 and I am normally a size 0 in their skirts, dresses and shorts. After trying on most of the pieces, I looked for what fit me the best (I was envious of what the other female model was able to wear, she fit all the sample sizes perfectly).

The first outfit I chose was my favorite look of the night;  a gorgeous turquoise turtle neck tank with a purple sheer fabric that hung beautifully across the chest. It was paired with turquoise shorts and a fabulous printed bag. I brought a pair of black patterned stockings and Jeffrey Campbell booties to finish off the look.

My second look was a sleeveless printed dress with triangle cutouts around the collar as well as on the bottom. It was paired with a short sleeve cardigan and a red &  turquoise purse. The cut of this dress is so flattering, it will look good on any shape and size. It is currently available on the store floor in solid colors, I love it even more so as a printed dress.

The third look nailed one of the hottest current trends, colorblocking. I absolutely adored this turquoise tank dress with diamond cut outs. It looks a little big on me, but with the right sizing this dress is actually very flattering. It was paired with a bright orange shrug cardigan (to give the colorblocking effect) and a printed purse.

The forth look is another printed dress. All the colors they chose for the spring-summer line are bright and playful, just as it should be. It is a sleeveless dress that has a tie around the waist. We decided to tie it in the front to give it a unique look, although it looks equally flattering tied in the back. This dress was paired with a long sleeve green and blue cardigan and a gray purse with yellow accents (my next must have purse).

For my final outfit of the evening I wore a reddish pink dress evokes a 60′s feel with a lowered tapered waist. It is a sleeveless v-neck dress that has turquoise and black accents. This was paired with a turquoise vegan pleather motorcycle-style jacket and a red & turquoise purse.

A piece that I didn’t model in the show but is part of the new spring-summer line is this purple asymmetrical jacket. The fit was spot on; it is slimming throughout the torso and a perfect length (although I definitely need to size down), and I loved the pattern and color. Once this hits the store floor, I am definitely getting myself one.

Honestly, I could have spent hours trying on all the clothes in this store. Everyone I met was really warm and welcoming, making it really easy to model and enjoy myself.  At the end of the night, I ended up picking out a dress to take home.  I can’t wait to wear it and take pictures for an upcoming post (it’s from their previous season). Sadly, I have to wait for the spring-summer line to hit stores so I can find my favorite pieces from the fashion show in my actual size.
