Throwback Thursday

We’re back again people! Everyone’s favorite day of the week on Hi Tona…THROWBACK THURSSDAAAYYYY!

Go ahead, play the song, you know you want to.

Today’s Throwbackee is my good friend who will remain anonymous until I get her approval.

As you can see here on the right we have my friend in this fabulous foto from circa 1993. I’m a huge fan of the those little side curls and lets not get started on that Pendleton jacket and the turtleneck. All in all, she was styling and profiling in the early 90’s and in case you don’t realize it scroll back up and watch that video.

Now, my favorite thing about my friend’s style really is her hair. She has an ability to wear her hair short and really pull it off. And even though she has short hair she plays with clothing in a way that never comes across incredibly masculine even when she’s wearing menswear. I think it’s a unique ability to walk that line so closely and come off the wire always looking well put together and cohesive.

Here you see her in the rarely seen but oh-so-awesome short suit combo with delicate top and a tie. And in the following fotos a range of hair lengths, all above the shoulder, and outfits that range from some sort of vacation in the 60’s, to 50’s housewife, to a comfortable combination of mens blazer and a tulip edged shirt.

Here is a woman who has found a style that fits her and she’s comfortable with but it never means that her style is not progressing or evolving.

I think she said it best herself, “Still boldly taking pages out of men’s style books and making them her own.”

Enjoy your Thursday and take risks with your fashion, it’s only one day of trying something new, if it doesn’t work there is always tomorrow.

It’s Our Anniversary!

Here we are, one month in and over 800 views! Thanks everyone, so much!

It’s our goal here to run a couple of regular pieces, you’re all familiar with Throwback Thursday, so we’re going to start “We Style You Wednesday!”

Here’s a chance for you, the reader, to ask a question about style and fashion. Questions can range from “What’s the hottest shoe style this season” to “What skirt is most flattering to my body type” or “Have you seen any shirts out there that can showcase my tattoo”.

We’re really looking forward to being more involved with our readers and are excited to showcase you on our site!

Next week we’ll reveal our first “We Style You Wednesday” so you have a little over a week to get your questions in!

You may remember them from Weekend Round Up

Here’s the awesome basket they’re raffling off

Tickets are only a dollar! yes $1! Davines products are expensive, but worth every penny, so a dollar for a ticket is amazing!

So, stop by the salon in Nob Hill and get your ticket before it’s over! And if you go in then you’ll know where it is when all the exciting events happen next month!
