Playing by the Look
55 miles per hour. No returns without receipt. Dry clean only. No kissing on the first date. Credit cards not accepted. No double dipping (at least not when anyone is looking).
Your life is full of restrictions. Break free with one Rull that’s meant to be outspoken.
Cassandra Rull first broke into the local fashion scene as a student sewing party dresses for her and her friends after class. Now she’s a college graduate and ready to relaunch her quirky, pattern-mixing line in a brick-and-mortar store.
There’s nothing basic about the collection: cheeky beach shorts with pockets in contrasting prints, yoga pants done in purple-and-green tie dye and, neon green, tiered, crop tank tops all in super-soft eco-friendly cotton blends or 100-percent bamboo.
But Rull followers will find a more grown-up side to her beachy, body-skimming styles. She’s added flowing sleeves to colorful minidresses and turned the draping and tailoring skills she picked up in school into more flattering racerback maxis and convertible tube tops.
Every single style is washable and virtually wrinkle-proof so you can stash it in your bag for fashion 911s.
Making it easy to relax and still play by the Rulls.
Cassandra Rull’s line for Fashionista’s Market debuts at First Friday, 5 p.m. – 11 p.m. at 1185 Bethel St. You can also see a more neutral line of her clothes in online boutique Mikinola.
