BARE was out n' about in Rockridge

Today's Out and About in Rockridge street festival was quite a rockin' change of pace for what are usually quiet Sundays here around Cal. The Rockridge shopping district was shut down to all traffic except pedestrians; hundreds of them, from kids to grannies, came out to try foods, shop (everything from bags to art to pottery to underwear), and... watch fashion.

There were two runway shows featuring clothing and styling by various Rockridge boutiques and salons, including: Dapper menswear, Crush on College, Alexander Pope salon, Tootsies shoes, Crossroads Trading Co., Seven 7 Salon, Inamorata, Sahaira, and others. Here are a bunch of photos I snapped at the event!
