Philadelphia Street Style: Jordan, Walnut St

Jordan is a professional stylist from West Philadelphia. She describes her style as "a little eclectic, fun, chic, and… all me." Being a stylist, she says, "makes [her] a little bit more aware of what's going on" in the fashion world. But it also makes her more concerned about standing out from it. There's a fine line, she explains, between being in style and "being trendy." A stylist has to learn how to navigate that line effectively. 

DIY Old Navy top
When I stopped her on Walnut Street, Jordan was a bright pop of color on a cloudy summer day. This top is a DIY-job on a dress from Old Navy.
Calvin Klein cut offs
Her jewelry are from H&M and Pier One. The cut-offs used to be a pair of Calvin Kleins. I guess they still are.
Kenneth Cole bag
The bag, in bold bright orange, is Kenneth Cole. 
These shoes are Via Spiga. The sunglasses (in the image up top) are Retrosuperfuture.

Jordan sees Philly's fashion scene as on the rise. It's funky, eclectic, and diverse. "Philly to me," she says, "is sort of on the trendy side for the most part, but then I love when I hit like South Street or Avenue of the Arts and then you just see all walks of life wearing whatever it is that makes them happy. It’s my favorite part. It just reminds me of New York."
