20-year-old Zanni Watkins and Sasha Barkanic both agree that UGG boots are tragic. They stick with brands like Jeffrey Campbell or Sam Edelman.
“I love boots. I have about 15 different pairs. I wear them all year. You can pull off boots with shorts as long as they’re not UGGs.” Sasha tells me.
Zanni adds, “Uggs are a problem. I own a purple pair that I am embarrassed to wear even around my house.”
Zanni’s flowing black maxi skirt was a recent purchase from Flashbacks. Her top is from American Apparel and her ankle boots are Jeffrey Campbell.
Zanni is a jewelry fanatic. She works at her dad's shop Encinitas Custom Jewelers.
“My favorite wardrobe item is this necklace.” She says showing me a silver necklace with a triangle charm. “A friend brought it back for me from Turkey. It opens up and I can store stuff inside.”
Sasha’s favorite wardrobe item are her tasseled Sam Edelman ankle boots.
Name: Sarah Brandt
Occupation: Sales girl at Flashbacks in Encinitas
I spotted Sarah sitting on a curb in front of Flashbacks, on Coast Highway 101, enjoying a cigarette break. Sarah's faux fur coat and 1970's sparkle shirt were purchased at Flashbacks. Her red vintage Coach purse was a thrift store find. Sarah's highwaisted jeans are made by Neuw -an Australian Brand, and were purchased at Wasteland. Her favorite local stores are Flashbacks and Captain's Helm in Oceanside.
