    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #66 – Vanessa

    April 26th, 2013

    I caught Vanessa coming out of the Stella McCartney store on Greene Street in Soho in midst of a shopping spree. The fashion stylist from New York was wearing a Proenza Schouler coat and sweater paired with a skirt and some beautiful boot heels by Tyler Fitzsimmons. The part of her outfit, that couldn’t have been missed though was Vanessa’s handbag – a unique piece from the pre-fall 2012 Dolce & Gabbana collection. It’s combination of floral print, black leather and gold looked stunning and caught the attention of many fellow shoppers, me included.

    April 19th, 2013

    Jenette is an aspiring photographer from the Ukraine. She moved to New York three months ago with a friend to further her photography career. When I met her she was wearing a round neck top coat from COS (Collection of Style) belted over an amazing vintage tuxedo shirt she found at a thrift shop, creating a beautiful feminine silhouette. Further she was wearing a pair of ankle boots from All Saints and finished off her look with a handbag from ASOS, vintage sunglasses and a COS necklace. All together a beautiful look with an east European feeling to it.

    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #64 – Natalie

    April 12th, 2013

    Natalie’s outfit seemed rather simple when I first saw her walking past the window of my favorite Starbucks, but it caught my attention and proved to be very well thought through. The NYU student was wearing a quilted leather jacket from All Saints over a flannel shirt she got from her sister and a Zadig & Voltaire t-shirt. From the waist down she was dressed in Topshop jeans and ankle boots. The highlight of Natalie’s outfit had to be the little vintage Chanel purse she got from her mother. With the brand’s typical quilted stitching and a golden ball charm a beautiful vintage piece to finish off her rocker-chic look.

    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #61 – Rosie Kenworthy

    März 26th, 2013

    Rosie’s floppy bordeaux French Connection hat was the first thing to catch my attention. She was shopping in the Brooklyn Fox boutique in Williamsburg with two of her friends from London. When she came out of the boutique I got to see the rest of her outfit. Rosie was wearing a big faux fur leopard print jacket with a dress and studded boots all by Topshop and a tweed jacket from Zara. The best part of Rosie’s outfit had to be her handbag though. A beautiful little Love Heart Handbag by Vivienne Westwood. Thank you Rosie for bringing some London style to New York.

    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #59 – Misselle Tai

    März 20th, 2013

    Misselle was on her way to business school, when I stopped her in Williamsburg. She was wearing a Comptoir des Cotonniers camel hair coat with matching Lauern Conrad pants a Club Monaco blouse and a Johnstons of Scotland scarf. She topped off the look with a beautiful pair of Reed Krakoff pumps and a Bordeaux Gym Bag also by Reed Krakoff. The most stunning peace though was hidden under her scarf – a beautiful vintage Coach necklace. I just love Misselles elegant business style and the color mix of camel, black and a pop of bordeaux. The perfect look for a merchandising manager.
