Philadelphia Street Style: Olivia, Walnut St

In the grey winter drab of Center City Philadelphia last week, Olivia really stood out. She described her style to me, quite appropriately, as "quirky," then added both "indie" and "low-key" to the mix. She likes knee socks and Oxfords, she elaborated, plain dresses, and scarves for both style and warmth. She has dyed her hair some four different colors in the last several months before returning to brown just in time for the holidays, so that she wouldn't have to deal with the more conservative members of her family on the issue. Her jacket she got from a friend. That Day of the Dead scarf she picked up from Hot Topic. The image on the bag is from "The Little Mermaid." When I asked about her musical taste, she mentioned Arctic Monkeys, Bright Eyes,and She and Him. "Eclectic," she summed up. "But still indie," I added, noting that her list may have covered a stylistic range, but one that fits decisively into a genre. "Yes," she agreed.
