Freak Alley


I've been wanting to do this post for a while, you have no idea. The Freak Alley Gallery is my absolute favorite place in downtown Boise (with the exception of maybe the all you can eat Indian buffet at the Bombay Grill...). I've actually been wanting to shoot an outfit post here for the last year or more, but never really gotten the chance. This last week I finally got around to it! And all the better, because as it turns out I was wearing two of my favorite projects form the last year this particular day.

And while I was there, I realized that this would be the perfect time to showcase one of the coolest parts of this city! The unicorn below was my friendie for these pictures. My incredibly pink pants and I welcome you to Freak Alley:


I wore my DIY "in memory of" t-shirt, which is one of my favorites now and on heavy rotation. And as it turned out was perfect against the awesome graphic backgrounds.



And these earrings are a version of my fringe earrings tutorial in silver.

And now for some awesome Boise culture! Freak Alley was established 12 years ago in 2002, as a place to showcase local street artists. Artists lease space along the walls of a block long alley off 8th Ave in downtown Boise, and the majority of the artwork changes once a year, in August. We've been checking it out a lot lately because the artwork is changing this month and we've gotten to see the artists in action. It's amazing, a living art gallery for the public. And the materials used range from mosaics, to mirrors, to airbrushing, to sharpie. It's an incredible mix of innovative pieces that changes every year.

Just to give you an idea, this is what that same unicorn wall looked like six weeks ago. Please excuse me starting vapidly at the camera:


Awesome, right? This was my daughter's favorite, and if you know about her love of sharks, you'll know why!


This doorway is my favorite piece, and the one from the head shots above. The detail is incredible!


And of course, zombies!


If you're ever visiting Boise this is one local secret you don't want to miss, for sure. And I hope you enjoyed my fun outfit remix/mini tour of a Boise!
