It was a chill Friday in The Mission when we gathered interviews for this edition of Mission Style. The fashionistas who caught our eye this week wore casual looks, but added just the right amount of personal style and unexpected touches to stand apart from the sea of Missionites.
Name: Eva Templin
Vibe: Eva’s red printed dress was an easy, breezy punch of color among the greenery of Dolores Park. A black suede jacket and sparkling sandals anchored the look.
Brands: Guess jacket, dress bought online at Dish, Longchamp bag, Fellini sandals.
Who is your style icon? “Ooo. I think that is a tricky one. It’d be someone like — I don’t know, I can’t name, like, one particular one … But Natalie Portman would be one. Otherwise, I like girly, flirty. Yeah … or … Blake Lively.”
Name: Sabrina Cruz Carpio
Vibe: Sabrina’s relaxed ‘90s chola style was fun, easy and cool. The varied jewelry, glasses and nails really elevated the whole look.
Brands: “I’m pretty sure everything is thrifted, so I have no idea what brands they are. Yeah, everything is from like either Mission Thrift or Goodwill.”
What are the benefits of buying thrifted? “First of all, that you will wear something that no one else has, and is way cheaper. And, I don’t know, it’s kind of a style … thrifting … like everyone’s doing.”

How would you describe the fashion in Macedonia? “Uh, well, it’s a multicultural country, so the younger are very fashionist. I don’t know, it’s different. We keep in touch with the world fashion.”
