The Celebration steams ahead as we inch closer to Next Wednesdays' Fashion Show at MOCA! Continuing on this visual journey Chloe may not be a Barista at Bold Bean but she represents a very important part of the coffee shop, CUSTOMERS!! Lookin' all fierce Chloe and a friend made their way to Bold Bean as the shoot progressed unbeknownst to them . I loved their style so much I asked Luis to snap a few pics. They agreed and WOW! what a magical result, this image screams fall! Netflix, chill and oogle over Chloe! Happy Sunday!

Q & A WITH CHLOE

What is your favorite BB beverage for fall?

It's typical, but there's nothing like a dirty chai, it tastes like Christmas. Luckily Bold Bean has the best one around, I started drinking it iced when I got sick of the heat and missed the comfort of the holidays.

What is one thing you will never wear again?

A padded bra.

What’s one thing you will never stop wearing?

A black skater skirt, I'm wearing one right now. It's simple so you can look as fancy or as casual as you want. It twirls when you spin and it's comfy enough to sleep in if you have to.

How does your life influence your style?

I'm a little scattered, so my style is constantly changing. But I try and dress according to the mood I want to be in. If I'm feeling down, I'll wear the brightest, bounciest dress

HOW FASHION TRENDS START

What is a trend?  A trend is a social process in which style changes. A good example of this is how we dress, of course my first obsession.  If a change is short lived its known as a fad.  Trends typically last long term. A lot of fashion changes are fads because they do not stick around for longer than 2 seasons.  A good example of a trend would be pleats.  They lasted a LONG time and then gone, some people are thankful. 

Trends are created by, you guessed it, TRENDSETTERS.  Think Madonna, Michael Jackson even Miley Cyrus, Chanel ahhh and of course J.Crew.  This may sound simple but for some it is not easy.  Trendsetters COVET change from time to time and in fact, often.  They are open to new originative styles and ideas embracing the new.  Personally, I find most trendsetters to be fascinating and can be found within the creative class.

Most wide spread trends are, of course, started in large cities like New York, Los Angeles and my beloved, Atlanta.  On a more international scale, Paris, Tokyo, Milan and London are filled with trendsetters, trendsetting. 

This important anthropological phenomenon is why I started the Bandwagon Effect.  Here in the southeast we have to embrace and not be afraid of TREND and become more bold with our style and how we approach everything we do.  Let's try new things, adopting an attitude of change is good.  Here at the Bandwagon Effect we are looking for those who embrace this spirit. In the next few days I will post my second feature Jacksonville style "One to Watch".  

I would love to hear from you with your ideas of what is hot, what is now and what is on TREND here in Jacksonville and all over the southeast. 

Stay tuned for more fashion as we continue to roll this Bandwagon down the streets and pick up more momentum on our goal to inspire and feature those who inspire through their bold trendsetting nature.

KEEP UP THE TRENDS AND KEEP FASHION NEW AND BOLD
