When it comes to summer, there are two things that are guaranteed here in Louisville: the slightly suffocating humidity, and Forecastle musical festival. And just like any other music festivals of its kind, many of the attendees use the weekend as an opportunity to express themselves with their unique style choices.
If you read this post on Anchal Project, you are well-acquainted with how the company is bringing about social and economical change with repurposed, cotton saris. This week, The Chic Street is teaming up with Anchal, and Revelry Boutique Gallery for the event, Festival Fashion for Good.
With InStyle Magazine recently naming the bandana as this year’s hottest festival fashion trend, me and Josh Johnson of The Kentucky Gent will be giving tips and tricks on how to style Anchal Project bandanas at the event on Wednesday, July 13.
“We are excited to partner with one of our favorite local boutiques and retail partners, Revelry,” says Colleen Clines, Anchal’s Co-founder and CEO. Colleen adds, “Festival season is such a fun time to experiment with your style and we want to help guests express their individuality with our one-of-a-kind pieces that are changing lives.”
The event will raise awareness for sustainable fashion, while also allowing the local community and festival-goers to support Louisville’s own Anchal Project. Representation from The Forecastle Foundation will be in attendance as well as a professional henna tattoo artist to complete the whole festival look.

Today, I am taking a moment to sit and appreciate the new season that is upon all of us. I have been going through so many changes of my own as of lately, so it feels quite cathartic to ponder the start of a new season, whether it is weather-related or simply a personal awakening, in a truly meaningful way.
Im getting back to basics this week, but adding a touch of panache with a blouse that belts in the back and shows just the right hint of skin at the same time. I am a huge fan of subtle sex appeal, and believe the back is such an underutilized accessory.
Like JT said, I’m bringing sext back. Yep.
One lesson we have learned when it comes to fashion, is that satire truly goes a long way. Right now, designers are borrowing a bit of comic relief from the 70s, and bringing patched up denim back into the the fashion stratosphere with their modern take on the trend. From mis-matched patches of denim at Tom Ford to a pair of DKNY jeans that resemble a DIY project (in the best way possible), and even emoji patches that reference the era that we currently live in, denim is getting a complete makeover this spring.
This time of year, my social feeds become completely oversaturated with stories covering the pieces to buy when transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring, and then from spring to summer. And while I am guilty of this type of relentless posting myself, one small, but very important piece of advice is often left out of the equation: look for items that will help you transition your wardrobe for many seasons to come.
If you are looking to add a little flare to your wardrobe this spring, take a cue from the bell- sleeved confections Phoebe Philo incorporated into her fall collection for Céline. All it took was one exaggerated silhouette sleeve, and instantly I knew that my arms had the potential to quickly become one of my new favorite accessories.
