Philadelphia Street Style – Spring Pastels

Shawna // South Philadelphia // May 14, 2010


Get ready for the weekend.

It somehow slipped my mind , but it’s that time of year again. Time for the Art Star Craft Bazaar!

If you’re unfamiliar with the event… check out the website to read up on the huge affair. 2 days of arts and crafts, jewelry, pottery, art, fashion and more. Even if you aren’t in the buying mood.. it’s going to be a great weekend to hang out at Penn’s Landing.

I will be out and about trying to control my spending, get a lil sun on my pasty face… and maybe find some Philadelphia Street Fashion? See you there!

p.s. Don’t forget.. Philadelphia Fashion Weekend at the Piazza in Northern Liberties, too! Busy bees, you’ll be.

A comprehensive guide to Philadelphia

I’m pretty happy to say that I couldn’t have done it better myself. Amazing home interior and lifestyle blog design*sponge has compiled a great list of places to eat, shop and be merry in Philadelphia with the help of Kevin Derrick. Kevin runs the blog DESIGN PHILADELPHIA.

The selections are broken down by neighborhood. You’ll see some of your old favorites.. and perhaps a few spots you didn’t know about.

Make sure to take a look at the guide HERE.
