Street fashion – oakland – ArtMurmer tribal sweater

Posted: December 10, 2008 in Queer Fashion Pictures

I love this piece. The pattern could be Pacific Northwest or Meso-American. I find this outfit captures something of the Oakland style. Somehow the style is less self-conscious than San Francisco fashion. The pieces do not need to be mint. It is totally not about money. I find it interesting because it is practical daily wear as well. There is not a big a chasm between work outfits and public outfits.
That is when fashion gains political power. If we dress 24/7 in way that expresses our identities, our otherness, then we all know we are not alone. Start by wear color to work. We can only escape our societies fashion cages, even we open the doors and walk out.
