I recently finished watching season three of the Fashion Fund on Amazon. I love Aurora James‘ style. It’s a mix of global + vintage + basics. So relaxed but also very chic.   I browsed through Etsy and created an Aurora James inspired outfit. As I write this all these items are still available.

If you like this style check out my curated Etsy board — 72 and Sunny.

2015 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists

I continue to be obsessed with the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. I love learning about new talent. Last year when the finalists were announced I gathered together links and videos for each of the finalists on my blog. The finalists for 2015 were just recently announced and so, here again, I have gathered links and videos for each of the finalists. Enjoy!

Scott Studenberg and John Targon of Baja East.

It’s funny how many of them are men’s clothing designers. Right?

My top three four favorites are:

1. Chromat
2. David Hart
3. Thaddeus O’Neil
4. Aurora James of Brother Vellies

Which ones are your favorites? Some of the videos I selected don’t really do the designers justice. You can learn more about them by clicking over to their website.
