A popular place for residents in the Indianapolis area to shop is Broad Ripple Village. With its eclectic shops, sidewalk cafes and diverse street-life, all surrounded by public arts and graffiti murals. Broad Ripple is the perfect place to get together with friends or, in my case, discover interesting Fashionista/os that are showcasing their personal style.
I found this Fashionista in the Village doing some shopping with her friends and stopped her because I loved her platform high-tops. Maybe it’s because they remind me of the Spice Girls or the fact that I’m always looking for ways to make myself taller, but the platform sneaker trend is one that I love and think is the perfect way to make a statement.
In addition to her statement shoes, this Fashionista picks up some of the bright colors in her high-tops with the ones in her leaf-print tank which is perfect for these hot summer days. Adding a lot of bright colors is a great way to add some fun and visual interest to your wardrobe this summer. She finishes the look with a pair of high-waisted cut-offs and a vintage looking belt. Her whole look gives off a ’90s vibe which is what drew me to her initially. This Fashionista’s ensemble is the perfect one for shopping because in addition to showing off her style, she’s also staying comfortable, which is important when spending the day shopping.
