It's been a while since a dog friend appeared on
this 'blog and this pup's peeps may well be the
first-ever trio. Way to keep cool, old school.

Some shoes were meant to be roughed up.
Her Rocket Dogs have aged well. A cute blouse
by rue21 and denim clam diggers balance the look.

Not all of the art on Frazier Avenue is found in
boutiques and galleries. Some of it may be seen
strolling past the shop windows. Her choice of
geometric print unites the denim and boots.

One Year Ago...
























poster art by Young Monster

Collective Clothing opened its doors in St. Elmo.
At last Chattanooga had a proper, vintage
clothing shop. Moreover, The Chattanoogan
found marvelous collaborators in Travis and
Sondra Aten. From Dance: The Hunger Fight
to MAINx24 and Collective Commute, these
kids have brought so much style life to life in our
town. Drop by the store Sunday to help them
celebrate their first anniversary.

Bold Creativity

One's rule broken is another's successful mashup. The blue and gold work well together, with white forming a small, repetitive pattern above and becoming the background to a grand scale abstraction below. Coordinating toenail polish and sandals finish the look. Well done!

Its fun to find yet another couple whose graphics
and scarves complement each other. She hails
from Chile, he from Nashville.

Chic Cycling in Chattanooga

The rains abated just long enough for us to hold
the show out of doors as planned. The crowd still
outnumbered the models, whose vintage looks
from Collective Clothing were enhanced by the
handiwork of Elea Blake and Salon Epiphany.
Everyone agreed: You looked marvelous!
See us on Facebook.

same. Their goal is a Walnut Street Pedestrian
Bridge that everyone may enjoy.
