Fall Fashion: Murphy Galloway





Necklace 1 – This sterling silver necklace with a pale blue teardrop bead in the center was purchased by Galloway at the Renaissance Fair years ago.


Necklace 2 – The coffee-colored plastic beads, dangling on a gold chain caught Galloway’s eyes at her local farmers market. 


Earrings – These earrings from Hillcrest Thrift mirror the Earth’s elements through the amber oval beads, linked by copper wiring to olive green ones. Both beads are made of plastic and, if examined closely, have a white marbling, which fades toward the front. 


Bracelets – The beaded bracelets are both from a Turkish pop up store, which put all their proceedings towards funding Ukraine. Galloway admired the mix of crystals, glass blown beads and sterling silver charms. The leather bracelet was gifted from a friend and represents a more down to earth aesthetic, similar to that of the others which seemed to hold more spiritual meaning.


“Having one main style or one main aesthetic is very much stressed in the fashion world,” Galloway said. “But when you’re a person that loves fashion just do whatever you want and dress however you want because clothes are meant to be worn, not kept in a closet.”

Dress – This handmade dress, inspired by nature, is one Murphy Galloway’s favorite pieces. Its sage coloring gives off earthy tones and its flowy fabric gives into a bohemian aesthetic. The fern detailing trails down the skirt, which is cut and layered to a tissue style. “I bought it because it definitely reminded me of something a fairy would wear,” Galloway said. “The shop owner showed me this and I just knew that I had to get it.”


Boots – These black leather Doc Martens are from the seventies and eighties punk scene and were a hand me down from Galloway’s mom. “They’re really comfortable and easy to wear to music venues because whenever you’re dancing around you get stepped on a lot. I’ve had to glue the soles on a couple of times just because they’re so expensive and hard to break in.”

About the Contributor
Sofia Ball, Writer
Hi! My name is Sofia Ball and I am a writer for the Northwest Passage. Writing started out as a hobby for me. Something I never imagined I would be good at until about 7th grade after taking a creative writing class with Dr. Van Zant. I just started out as a freshman, and already, I've come to know and love many of the classes, teachers and students here at Northwest. I’d like to think of myself as an extrovert, but most of my freetime is spent either reading, writing or watching Netflix in my bedroom. I used to watch The Office all the time before it got removed. The only time you'll ever see me out and about is probably at Cross Country or Track practice. You may even see me handing out our latest newspaper issues around the school.
