It may be as a reaction to the neon/super colourful trend, but I’m increasingly digging all black-outfits, though I always thought it was quite difficult to pull off. I think the important thing is to have interesting detailing or texture to make it stand out, and then it can look incredible, like it does on this girl!
I fancy this woman as a young Anna Wintour before she became a hoity toity editor, before she dolled up her bob with highlights, before she became so fashionable she forgot to shop for simple RTW black pieces that so look together you forget they’re not designer wear.
Sevan asks, “Are there only young, good looking and stylish people in NYC ?”
No, but I find that, when I go, most everyone has a certain “something” about them. I finally figured out that if all you have (well, mostly) around you to buy is exceptional things to wear, and great barbers and stylists, you’re just going to look better. Haven’t been for a while. Maybe one last trip before I move back to the midwest from DC…
Now I get it: there is no need to smoke any more because we have the phones to hold ourselves onto when waiting for somebody or something! Better for our lungs anyway. And for the others as well. I like her hair a lot.
Beautiful photo, as always. I’m a big fan of this blog. However, I’ve noticed that in a lot of the photos lately the subject is engaged with their phone, and not the world around them. Many of the photos where the subject is not looking at their phone at that moment, it’s right there in their hand, at the ready.
Are we really so tech-dependent that we can’t look up every once in a while and appreciate the world around us, like the very beauty in everyday life this blog means to showcase? I’m not trying to bash technology, but perhaps a call for more balance between a digital life and real life wouldn’t be out of order.
Oh these shorts make me miss my black wool sailor pants from years ago. I found a bunch of Navy issue pants at the second hand store and slapped lace cuffs on them. This shot inspires me to find another pair and have some fun with alterations :-)
As a Japanese, I’m interested in what kind of racial/cultural background she has. The tatoo has a hint of traditional Japanese design (cherry blossom), but Japanese women don’t wear tatoos this big usually, if they have one.
With her bobbed black hair hiding her profile, we can’t even tell if she is a Caucasian or an Asian, which makes this photo all the more mysterious, I think.
