Another great candid look.

A great urban ballerina look! All the elements are very simple, and yet the whole outfit exudes edginess.

Africans and African-Americans have been uber-well represented on your blog lately. Cheers.

love how she’s is looking to the camera!! Great style!

Another inspiring look. I have been following your post for a while. I just want to thank you for photographing ordinary people who dress for the life they are living, instead of editors and models on the street, dressing for the photographer.
Ban smackin’! Love it.

Madonna’s influence will never end. This is so Danceteria…

Enjoy the short dance like flowing top with the ballet shoes. She certainly looks like she has a spring in her dance step and some style moves.

Love the hair!

Cute young woman. Too bad about the cigarette.
May 22, 2012 at 5:36 pm
This is a great outfit, and a lot has to do with really good pattern making. She looks fabulous!
May 22, 2012 at 5:39 pm
cute shape on a serious sister. is that a cig?
May 22, 2012 at 5:42 pm
Love her hair.
May 22, 2012 at 5:43 pm
I love the crop top and bleached hair.
May 22, 2012 at 5:48 pm
Ahh New York… Beautiful!

Looks like a nice necklace. Love the picture!
May 22, 2012 at 5:59 pm
I always loved black outfits under the sun ad here there are great !
May 22, 2012 at 6:15 pm
love her vision…..it’s just need polishing in the fit…maybe straight on shot would be more flattering
May 22, 2012 at 6:35 pm
Ballet shoes are a great, unexpected touch. They add an unexpected sweetness to the look without hijacking it. Intense and confident expression makes her seem like somebody whose opinion I’d like to know.
i wanna a closer look of the necklace!
May 22, 2012 at 6:39 pm
love the cuts! great pics!
May 22, 2012 at 6:46 pm
Beautiful and honest
May 22, 2012 at 6:56 pm
Scott, your use of light is beautiful. You would make anybody look
This young lady is ready to leap across the street with her ballet shoes.
May 22, 2012 at 7:02 pm
Gorgeous, absolutely stunning. Her stature is impeccable!
May 22, 2012 at 7:09 pm
It seems short tops are back.
May 22, 2012 at 7:20 pm
Very nice shot! I love it!
May 22, 2012 at 7:25 pm
I love, love, love her hair. So cute!

May 22, 2012 at 7:53 pm
how cool is that
May 22, 2012 at 9:36 pm
I love crop tops and higher waists with them. Love shoes like that too. never thought about wearing all black like that, but it looks great. Lovely expression and lighting …as always here. Great hair. Great picture.
May 22, 2012 at 10:02 pm
Shame about the cigarette. Gorgeous girl.
May 23, 2012 at 12:51 am

ARIEL! She’s an Atlanta girl. So proud of her.

My beautiful friend, ariel! Atlanta misses you! But you belong in NY :) xox
I have seen a couple of cropped fitted tops paired with large flowing skirts, but it is the first time I see the opposite: a cropped loosely fitted top with a form hugging skirt. The result is quite interesting…:-)

May 23, 2012 at 10:00 am
Love this look! Any chance she said where we can get those excellent ballerina shoes?
May 23, 2012 at 10:23 am

Lovely 80′s groove.
May 23, 2012 at 11:15 am
I like her hair, is it bleached? It looks wonderful with the black ensemble. I love the shoes.
May 23, 2012 at 11:23 am
Such a nice look! Great picture!
May 23, 2012 at 11:36 am
lovely….but a dancer with a cigarette? just plain foolish
May 23, 2012 at 11:46 am
Not many people could pull this off, but her tight body can!
May 23, 2012 at 12:20 pm
I love this shot — her looking at you as she is about to cross the street. Amazing!
May 23, 2012 at 1:17 pm
i love it!
casual but with a twist! :)
May 23, 2012 at 1:20 pm
Casual and super-chic and sexy at the same time!
May 23, 2012 at 1:54 pm
She would be fantastic if she were not a smoker.
May 23, 2012 at 2:23 pm
Crop tops:a necessity for the season. Love how she pairs it with a pencil skirt to change it from dressy to casual. Digging the monochromatic look!
May 23, 2012 at 2:33 pm
Atlanta born fashion designer. En pointe in NYC!

May 23, 2012 at 2:57 pm
Hard as nails look and then BOOM ballerina shoes. Adore.
May 23, 2012 at 3:43 pm
Love that skirt in combination with the top! Great style!
May 23, 2012 at 4:26 pm
Ariel, you look beautiful as always. You’re already turning heads. That city isn’t going to know what hit it. Love you lady.
May 23, 2012 at 4:31 pm
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Haven’t been in the city a year and already turning heads.
May 23, 2012 at 8:06 pm
Love her shoes!!!!!
May 24, 2012 at 1:14 am
I know that girl from Atlanta – 1) she is awesome 2) entirely unsurprised she is on here – because of 1.
May 24, 2012 at 5:27 pm
Love the cuts and her hair colour. It really pops out from all that black. She is stunning.
May 24, 2012 at 9:19 pm
the colored necklace makes for a great contrast!
May 26, 2012 at 2:37 pm
love everything but the cigarette !
