Summer of Love… coming to an end

Summer always flies by with day when everything is a little more relaxed and nights a little longer than normal.  Every June, when I was still in school, I always thought the Summer would stretch on forever, but come the end of August, I always felt like I blinked and it was over.  Now that I’m working, I feel that way about most time in general, but the Summer slowdown in particular – that special time when not everything is a rush, it never lasts, darnit!

The same thing goes for the Summer of Love Fair, which ends on August 8th.  So many talented designers are participating and have put out great finds (and some deals!) – a few of which are exclusive to the fair.  My favorites? Check out the pictures below:

TART Bree SOL Alexohol Fashions - Country Time (All Star) SOL

I’ve said it before, and I’m sure I will continue to repeat myself (I tend to do that, my apologies now), but one of the big reasons I fall in love with an outfit is versatility – either in styling or use of the individual pieces.

SOL Plastik - Vintage SOL Plastik - Denali SOL Plastik - Floratia Intrigue - I'm a Maze(d) SOL Relentless Couture SOL

More pictures can be found on my Flickr with full styling credits.

As I’m sure you’ve seen, the point of this fair is to raise awareness for mental health issues, which a lot of people are affected by, and all of us encounter in one way or another in our lives.  I’m not going to get into any of the politics behind the quantity of information supplied (I get enough of that at work, thanks), but I do want to point out one thing – with all of the participation and interest, what I see is a group of people who are trying to say that if you have an issue and you need help, you are not alone.
