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 IÂ´m wrong in my analysis.
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.
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!
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.
