SF Street Style: LA Lady Mixes Hermes with All Saints, Ksubi + More, in SOMA
Thanya Abigail Ponggawa, an Indonesian lovely, currently studying in LA. Thanya was in SF this weekend, "with [her] family for a weekend getaway from the heat in LA." When I first spotted her I actually only saw the back of her outfit, but was then happy to discover her stunning architecural sunglasses and adorable necklace -- the whole outfit is such a fantastic mix.
What she's wearing: Oversized sunglasses by Ksubi; white asymmetrical All Saints t-shirt and whistle necklace; speckled grey slouchy, long cardigan by American Apparel; Hermes scarf and Kelly Bag; Kill City patchwork leggings; Acne peep-toe, lace-up wedges; Bvlgari watch, paired with Hermes and Madewell bracelets.
Okay, those sunglasses are seriously amazing.
As I've said before, I'm a huge fan of women rocking mens-style watches, and she's mixed in a nice array of bracelets, with a perfectly slouchy sleeve. Also, mad props for the whistle necklace.
I'm kind of digging these elongated sweater-coat cardigans -- they're great for SF weater.
