Street Style: Deck Us All

Street Style: Deck Us All

Razzle, Dazzle and Bedazzled!  Glittery magic is in the air. Twinkle lights abound. Sparkles, gold and silver scream celebration on the streets as the holidays near. Elves and Nordic monsters troll our downtown streets along with festive fashionistas, all deciding the big question. “Who has been naughty, and who has been nice?”

So, here are my picks for each list! 

NICE – Rudolph’s doppelganger? Let’s say Rudolfina! (As seen on 36th Street)
NICE – Glittering gold; a perfect holiday wrapping (As seen on Aliceanna Street)
A Little Bit Naughty – Shimmering shoulders wax poetic against glittering lights, maybe in search of some mistletoe…? (As seen on Hickory Avenue)
NAUGHTY – One jeans leg black, one white, leopard coat, neon scarf, patent boots and faux fur bag. A wicked look that works. (As seen on Exeter Street)
NAUGHTY – Whoa, this ain’t no Silent Night! (As seen on Mount Vernon Square)
NICE – A touch of Dickens – but no sign of Scrooge! (As seen on Mount Vernon Square)
VERY NAUGHTY – Sequins & stilettos (As seen on Charles Street)
VERY NICE – Adding seasonal sparkle to a kicky casual ensemble (As seen on Charles Street)
NICE – Spot on for the season! (As seen on 36th Street)
NICE – Chic season’s greetings! (As seen on 36th Street)

Just when you think that you have seen it all, leave it to the streets of Hampden to come up with an original holiday idea. Krampus – European folklore of a monster tagging along with St. Nick to put candy in the shoes of good kids and birch twigs in the shoes of the bad – inspires Krampuslauf every December in Hampden.

Check out some of the revelers…

NAUGHTY & NICE – This little elf has it ALL! Which is a good message to all of us. To everyone out there on the streets – be a little naughty and be a little nice this holiday season! And that’s how we roll in Baltimore folks. Happy Holidays!
