Bold prints, accessories, trends, vintage and thrift store treasures were all on display this weekend at the 2013 Capitol Hill Block Party. For a wrap-up of Capitol Hill Block Party, check out Soundposts.

Rapper Danny "Avatar Darko" Degtjar is fit for print--or at least 3 of them. His multi-colored Obey shirt he wears open with Ralph Lauren Hawaiian floral print shorts, his red hat and socks are made by Huff, and his Pumas were a gift from Fader and Puma. He says is most fond of his pocket kerchief.

University of San Diego sophomore Mahie Solomon says she enjoys combining items from her heritage with more modern pieces in her wardrobe. Her beaded sleeveless top came from a thrift store in San Francisco, the skirt she picked up in Santa Cruz, Calif., her Toms flats were a birthday present, her gold anklets are from India while her head piece she happily says was purchased for a bargain $7 dollars at a thrift store. Her heart-shaped Betsey Johnson sequins purse is from Macy's.
