As most of you know I am not terribly Cali-centric even though I am currently typing this from somewhere south of the Grapevine. I do appreciate so much of what California has provided - strawberries in January, delicious wine and beautiful places to taste man made nectar, and of course style. California style has often been born of necessity - whether it be strolling a red carpet or the boardwalk. What puzzles me the most is that when poking around said areas above, Californians seem to be lacking a style direction. I have said it before. The women appear not to know if they are attending a beach bonfire, drum circle, red carpet event, or going to Starbucks.
While I appreciate this newly christened mash-up term "Cali-eccentric", I think you will find that it too doesn't have a clear direction. It's a little boho, a little punk, a little beach, and a little 70s. Either way it's clear this is a shared perspective. Note the similarities below: Rachel Zoe FW 2012 and the new line Skaist-Taylor FW 2012.

I like this look. I love a maxi with some edge.
