FashionIndie Road Trip: Invading your Hometown this Summer!


Indies, start your engines. I, your Fashion Editor, will be driving coast to coast to coast in search of the realest, coolest, most independent fashion to walk this nation. I’m scouting local boutiques and their rad owners, small town designers with big city designs, Main St. streetstyle, and what precious junk the country is hauling out to thrift stores. We’ll see what happens when NYC style hits Middle America. I’ve marked out the route. Who’s coming with?

With awesome indie stores and designers already in touch, we’re looking for far more. If you have any fashionable suggestions along the route, we want to know! Hit me up in the comments, or tweet at me @JessicaLapidos @FashionIndie #INDIExUS.
