IFB Recap: Boy Meets Girl
I promised to write more about the IFB conference. My last post covered the key points from the speakers and panels that I found inspiring. Between these talks, I got to meet the sponsors of the event. Lockerz was one sponsor in particular that I really liked. The site rewards you for sharing your personal style, and by logging in via Facebook, you get recommendations for things to by based on your social network. How cool is that?
But I nearly lost it when I saw that Lockerz was promoting Boy Meets Girl, a casual label I discovered while living in California.
Part of why I love Boy Meets Girl is the adorable logo. It’s so romantic and really mirrors the work of my favorite street artist, Banksy. The British artist uses stencils to adorn public buildings with compelling messages. Stencil graffiti is easier to reproduce than freehand graffiti. Using paper or cardboard, the artist cuts away the areas where the paint should be. The stencil is applied to a surface, paint is applied, and voilà!

Aside from believing that graffiti is art, Banksy consistently creates imagery that is thought-provoking. His work generally challenges the establishment, but I always notice he has a bit of a romantic side, too.

Boy Meets Girl definitely appeals to me! It’s so comfortable, can be dressed up or down, and has that street art flair. This sweatshirt blazer has mesh inserts and a burnout logo. Cute, fun, and unconventional – perfect for a Sunday afternoon with the girls. It even has drawstring pockets, so you won’t lose your keys or phone! And did I mention that I love the logo? So perfect. Check it out on Lockerz.
