Fab Friday: Xina Scuderi



On today's installment of Fab Friday, meet Xina Scuderi, a fashion blogger from St. Petersburg who also works at the fantastic Buffalo Gal Vintage. If you attend any Tampa Bay fashion events, you'll probably see Xina popping around with a camera on her neck, snapping photos for her blog, The Renegade Fashion Writer. Xina won a Creative Loafing Best of the Bay award for her blog this year. Here, she tells us a little about herself, her style and her favorite finds.

Name: Xina Scuderi

City: St. Petersburg

Style philosophy: Comfortable. Basic shirt and pants. I usually purchase investment statement garments or jewelry for important events that I attend as press.

Best deal ever: Free stuff from friends and family. Some examples - my favorite pair of jeans and my wallet were given to me by friends. People leave cool stuff and my house so I claim them, and my aunt cuts my hair for free. And I borrow often.

Favorite place to shop: For basic pants and tops, Target, LOFT, Old Navy. FRIENDS AND FAMILY'S CLOSETS! My investment and statement pieces are mostly from local boutiques and vintage stores. I go with Made in China on my basics but support local in my investment and statement pieces.

Xina's outfit: This is my look from when I attended the Peace Couture Fashion Show. For events, I usually wear at least one statement piece with some meaning that is related to the event or that moment in time. Here, I wore a historical military jacket in honor of Veteran's Day and in memory of my Pepere who was a veteran, with a simple black tank top, black pants and some chunky high heel brown ankle boots. I purchased the jacket from Buffalo Gal Vintage, where I am currently working. I also like to wear Nikon and press pass jewelry at events.
