The Look: Festival Style Inspired by Intermix for CHBP

Vanguard Seattle has recently formed a partnership with Caffe Vita, one of Seattle’s favorite coffee roasters and a pioneer in the Farm Direct movement, supporting fair trade and sustainable farming. The timing could not be better, as the Capitol Hill Block Party is this weekend and Vita is one of the performance venues.

Hopefully you already have your tickets, because they are sold out…but what are you going to wear? The young hipsters on the Hill don’t need any help with their music festival style, but some of us who are not regulars on the Hill may be asking ourselves how to get it together?

Luckily, fashion writer Lisa Cole is timelessly stylish and willing to share this great idea with readers:

Available from another Vanguard Seattle partner, Intermix in Bellsquare:

  • Current/Elliott Stiletto Distressed Croped Skinny jeans
  • Intermix Equipment Exclusive Brett Plaid Pattern Dress
  • rag & bone Noelle open toe black bootie
  • and Lisa’s own vintage Kooba Leopard print pony clutch.

Besides being a wiz at mixing patterns, Lisa is also on trend with mismatched earrings and two of  our favorite Fall trends, a dress over pants and plaid.

If you want a chance to see what Intermix has in store for Fall, you’re in luck. Lisa has been invited to host their upcoming Vogue Fashion event in September. Vanguard readers will be the first to know date and time and will be eligible for an in-store discount of top name designers.

We look forward to seeing you at Caffe Vita during CHBP where society writer Juliana Pera will be covering the fun looking for inspiring style while she’s at it!
