SactoMoFo Style

Today crowds of people descended on Fremont park with hopes of eating some amazing mobile food items for the Sacramento Mobile Food Festival (SactoMoFo). We arrived around 12:15 and lines were already hours long. Initial twitter reports are around saying there were 10,000 people in attendance. It was crazy.
We didn't eat breakfast, so waiting hours for food was not an option. We ended up going to Nishiki for sushi, right after we started eating that place filled up too. Restaurants around the park saw a 50% to 200% spike in business (also according to tweets).
While the event was a little crazy the attendees were ever so stylish, here's some of my favorite SactoMoFo looks:
Her shoes broke so she threw them away, I love this effortless summery look.
this is the girl at Chocolate Fish's leg, I love how she dressed up her work outfit.
This outfit reminds me of American Girl meets Harajuku. Her hair cut gives this otherwise super sweet look some edge.
Her mom wore this dress in the 70s and she's rockin it today with leather boots and a handmade re-purposed necklace.

Ok, this is random, but I'm a SacConnect blogger too, and I was standing right next to you guys at the Safeway bike racks when you took that last pic, and incidentally, I was on my way to do this photo shoot about a block away. Kinda meta. :-)

So many stylish people squeezed into one spot- sounds like absolute insanity! I wouldn't have been able to wait out the line either.

I Shot First - A Han Solo Halloween

This past Halloween I wanted to do something inherently sexy. Who is sexier than Han Solo? Answer: no one.

I started with pictures of Han. Specifically from "A New Hope."

Here are the elements: Off white, mandarin-collar shirt Black/navy vestDark pants with red stripesBlack boots (I already owned a pair)Belt and holsterBlaster
I started at Thrift Town, where I found a pair of dark slacks, a shirt, and a black suede jacket. I think I spent around $12. I cut the sleeves off the jacket and used red duct tape for the stripes. 
I ordered a toy blaster online, it only comes in white and orange. So I had to spray paint it. I used this tutorial.

If I was going to go further with this costume I'd make a replica of the belt, like this awesome woman did.

Luke really wanted to be Luke this year. His costume was a little more tricky. We bought a karate uniform online, he used a pair of khaki pants he already had and we tried to make the boots out of Ace Bandages, but that didn't w…

She saw my post about panniers a while back and got it in her head to make a pair of these roll-up brooks brand panniers - and she did. Here's the story:
Hey there Melody,  Remember these (Brooks roll-up panniers)?Well, I was so in love that I decided to make my own. They still need a few finishing touches but I was so excited I just had to show you. 
I'm going to Tandy Leather on Monday to get the studs for the little internal straps and maybe get a set of leather handles to sew on top so I can carry them like a satchel while shopping.  I made the pattern based on the size of a paper grocery bag so they should be big enough for two full bags of groceries! I think they look perfect on my Gazelle, don't you? (Yes, they look amazing).
I wanted to make them a little prettier on the inside so …
