    First I thought that this is a picture of a child.All the proportions in the t-shirt and the dress and the petticoat ,the shoes and the hat.After a closer look at the face -and I understood that this child is not a kid,but a grownup woman.Dressing up like this is not funny.Perhaps you reveal your personality in a very strange way.I sure hope I´m wrong in my analysis.

    Oh my gosh! Is that a petticoat peaking out from under her skirt folds? So cute!!

    YES !
    Sure, the lady has planned her outfit in detail but somehow she looks perfectly natural anyway.
    Only in NYC !
    Only NYC has that effect on people : Wear whatever you have and like – just be yourself . Because NYC will always make everything and everybody look right !

    Wow! I saw this woman on the F train last week and she was dressed almost exactly the same. I, too, was struck by her personal style. Guess she has a penchant for polka dots since she was covered in them when I saw her as well. Even though I got a distinctly Japanese-from-Japan vibe from her (no real reason), she is “So New York” to me, and I’m a Manhattan native.

    ahah I love that outfit especially the skirt. So funny. And she seems to be having a great time posing for you!

    I don’t think I’d wear the outfit, but I love this photo! Great smile & confidence, and a wonderful background. I love how the hangers and black tarp create a lovely upward slope.

    Perfect… Except the hat was a bit much.

    The red and gold of the tote bag make the whole look. Without the splash of color it all becomes twee and self-conscious.

    She doesn’t look a day over ten. I’m not sure that’s a positive thing…

    I love this outfit. It’s funky and cute. It looks a bit incongruous on an older woman, though. I think no one over 19 or so should rock this look.

    I believe she is my friend/purveyor of vintage Japanese clothing & fab avant garde accessories, Eiko Berkowitz, who has a store on Ludlow called YU. She has amazing personal style and due to her business and lifestyle, is able to dress the way i wish i could every day. She is a true example of the fact that just because you are “older” doesn’t mean you have to dress “old”. She dresses her mood and her feelings and she always looks creative and unexpected, which reflects her personality. And she is a very sweet person too! Eiko, if you are reading this, i’ll see you or call you soon!

    that’s eiko who owns the wonderful clothing store YU down on ludlow (a few steps from where she’s standing).

    she’s got a beautiful store, and she’s an amazing lady, constantly creating…

    i must echo the comments that this look is so new york. i love the way people in the city can wear whatever makes them feel fabulous, even if it is not fashionable in the traditional sense.

    I think a pattern study (even when in a very limited palette like this) looks best when the pieces are fitted. The volumes here are all over the place–not so much kooky sartorialist as just kooky.

    It’s Eiko! She’s amazing, and utterly sweet. She also carries Amy Downs’ hats in her store. YU has been open forever, and I live in constant fear that the uber-gentrification of the LES will push Eiko out. She also designs and produces her own clothes, and spins amazing yarns.
