Embellished Tomboy

Influencers, Persons of Interest  /   /  By Nina Louie

Today our guest blogger is Sonia Evers from Runway Hippie. We love her sense of style—and humor!

Growing up with two older brothers meant that I was constantly stealing from their closets without permission. Tattered jeans, ripped up t-shirts, and dinosaur-print sweatshirts were some of the more frequent pieces I “borrowed” before my brothers outgrew them and they became hand-me-downs. But even when I wore their clothes, I always managed to put my own, girly spin on things. From a pile of plastic pearl necklaces to my first pair of white patent leather Mary-Janes, there was never a moment when my outfit looked strictly tomboy. Decades later and I still borrow from the men’s department (for the record, I still steal my brothers clothes) and continue to vamp up each menswear inspired look with a feminine twist. Here I’ve done so by pairing a classic white button down, straight leg trousers, a Sinatra-inspired fedora and loafers with a sparkly Dannijo necklace and red lips. With just the simple addition of sultry red and sophisticated sparkle, this look goes from Billy Bob the Banker to ladylike Lydia! Or something like that…
