Welcome to the word of Citizen Ciao, where comfort with style is the Cali way!
This Los Angeles based brand has introduced me to a new style of comfort. I’m in love, yes head-over-heels, for the soft fabrics. Their ‘WE ARE THE NEW’ sweater might just become THE sweater for me. Besides snuggling in it in my lazy days I can also pair it with my American Apparel leather pants, any tights, or one of my free people styled long skirts.
Click on the brands to direct you to the site:
The skirt was a great find at Forever21 for about $25
and the shoes I got on sale from Urban Outfitters for $40 that was originally $180!
The sunglasses are a statement piece I can pair with almost anything on a sunny day. My new Beau & Ro all leather handbag is also a go-to for me. I can wear it like a clutch or up my 90’s game and style it like a fanny pack around my waist. Not only does it make my life more comfortable *LOOK MA TWO HANDS* but it also looks good.
I paired the ‘WE ARE THE NEW’ sweater during NYFW with one of my favorite shades of blue, a satin blouse and black vegan leather tights, both from American Apparel, to step up the comfort in my style as well as adding the feminine touch to it. Chanel became an icon through that philosophy and I still follow it today.
Citizen Ciao is a lifestyle streetwear brand for men and women, inspired by the Southern California surf culture. The brand’s “citizens” have an urban attitude and are diverse and multicultural, hence the brand’s slogan, “the new surf.” This brand new urban-infused surf brand just launched in July, 2014 and is available now at: www.citizenciao.com.

Karolyn Pho impresses in her fifth Fashion Week season with Spring/Summer 2015 at Pier 59 Studios.
This season, the main character in Karolyn Pho’s story is a vagabond. We follow her as she meanders through castles in the air, traipses between realities and crosses unknown borders. She is a nomad, a traveler, lost within her own self-perception.
I was very impressed with the way Karolyn played with fabrics and layers of it. Bold yet soft to the look. She always seems to know what color scheme is in my head.
She plays with daring cuts like a darling. The sparkle makes my heart <3 glow. That’s it! She shares with us backstage that her PR team inspired the look.
This is the loud courageous down to earth kind of style I expected out of Karolyn who matches all those personas. The white reminds me of Victorian style meets the inner bad ass I’ve been intuitive with.
As with seasons past there is an underlying vein of masculinity running throughout Pho’s collection. This season she aims to further abstract the conditioned perception of femininity and masculinity, with a color palette inspired by the Med-Deco architecture of Miami. The collection featured sky blue pinafore day dresses and racerback tank dresses, while Pho’s first foray into sequins as debuted in patch dresses and sequin back t-shirts.
Backstage she tells us
There’s a care free spirit and aloofness that becomes charming …
