This is Matt Campbell of Alert the Medic. I know it isn't the best quality photo but I love his red shirt and the erieness of the photo - very appropriate for this weekend. What do you guys think of red dress shirts on guys?

This is Allison. She works for the Ministry of Labour and is an avid reader of style blogs. I caught her on her way to work after her lunch break and thought she looked pretty great for going to work. What do you guys think about this work outfit?

On the street....Locke St. @Kataya

This is Brea. She works at Kataya a store on locke which has clothes designed by a Hamiltonian designer  whose clothes are made in Indonesia by women who are paid fairly and adequately. The clothes have a worldly or Asian feel to them. These pants are so awesome - they look so comfortable. Would you wear these?

On the street....Why Hamilton?

That's Me! Many people have been asking me to put a photo of me up here so here it is!

I wanted to take the time to explain why I chose to do a street style blog in Hamilton.  There seems to be a revolution happening in the city right now. Hamilton has been referred to as the next Brooklyn. What is it about Hamilton? Well for one thing it is cheap to live here so many artists and musicians flock here to prefect their craft so that they don't have to worry too much about living expenses. 

The monthly art crawl is a clear indication of the creativity that resides in Hamilton. When you walk down James St. N. during the art crawl the eclectic mix of people is entertaining in and of itself. This is where the fashion comes in. I run into many Hamilton fashion designers who are unrecognized and have to sell their clothing in Toronto. You have seen from my blog that there are many well dressed Hamiltonians so clearly there is an appreciation for fashion in the area. 

Is it possible Hamilton could become a fashion centre? Far-fetched, you think? Well, every fashion centre had to start somewhere. All it takes is a bit of organization and marketing to show Hamilton is worthy of becoming a fashion capital.

 We can try, at least.

On the street....Dundas St. E. @Waterdown Memorial Hall

My friends and I went to the haunted house at the Waterdown Memorial Hall last night. It was probably the most scary haunted house I have ever been in. No joke, I was screaming with terror. This was one of the characters found in the house. Great idea for a zombie maid costume!
