Sidewalk Chic: The Dark Side of Civic Center

Name: Rachel Rondell

Age: 21

Occupation: Fashion Design student at Academy of Art University, whose major is Womens’ Ready to Wear

Spotted: Outside of Etiquette Lounge, 11:53 p.m.

Wearing: 5th & Row jacket (her own design/label), dress from Thrift Town (“a closet staple,” she says), and Dolce Vita heels

How would you describe your style? “Dark with a little bit of sunshine.”

What are your favorite places to shop in SF? “The Mission. There is a vintage store there called the Painted Bird.  I'm addicted to vintage shoes and I go there to get my fix. 
Also Jeremy’s in SoMa. It's amazing, they have racks upon racks of vintage Chanel, Miu Miu and Marni.”

Why we love her look: Rondell adds visual interest to her all-black ensemble by playing with asymmetrical lines and proportion.
