I really love Tamera Ferro's style. If she seems familiar to you, that's cause we feature this fashionable San Franciscan in the Looks section of our current issue (click through for a peek), and her "Audrey Hepburn-meets-black forest-meets-gypsies" vibe is the dope show. My favorite part of her amazing outfit is definitely the handmade topper so you can imagine my gasp of excitement when I realized that she made it herself and actually SELLS them in her Etsy ...
