The cool thing about this dress is that I really can't figure out whether it's vintage or not. The whole ironically hip gold chain thing is offeset by the bizarro flowers interwoven with them. And she's surround by music gear which equals plus 4 cool points.
This dress is probably the kind of thing that, if you were to find in a thrift shop, you'd treasure for the rest of your life like those mix CDs that girl gave you.
For a while I've thought there to be a distinctly Miami look which I've always described as the "Miami streetkid" look. It's a little hood, a little punk, and a lot of attitude. To me, it's a lot of the arts school kids from DASH and New World rocking jeans or pants or even shorts, looser tops, and dreadlocks.
Hip-hop has become such an integral part of Miami culture (props to Trick Daddy, we remember "Nann") that even indie kids don't dare not bring that don't-fuck-with-me attitude. And this certainly comes through in their choice of clothing, no doubt.
Above is a very loose example of the "Miami streetkid" look as I see it. The bandanna is an ill Little Addition and the skull tat lets people know he's not playing. I think he looks great.
