    Yes chic and beautiful. But enough rich people. They are becoming boring.

      People are people. I don’t find poor people more interesting then rich people or vice versa. Who does?

    I have recently moved to New York City, and have been so inspired by the city's fashion! These are prime examples of what I'm talking about! and I am loving the platform wooden heels!

    Looks like denim is going strong for spring. I love it with the black, the shorts with the tights is great.

    I'm with you Scott, you can never tell if people are rich just from what their wearing. Many affordable brands and clothing look luxurious.

    The first outfit is the one for me. It is perfection.

    And I agree with you that it is impossible to know if either of these women is rich. Because they are well-dressed? Because they were photographed on Park Avenue? I am definitely not rich, but I dress myself along the same lines as them (I admit to spending to much money on clothes) and I sometimes find myself on Park. If people mistake me for being rich, great!

    In the second photo of the girl crossing the street, aren't her platform boots Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony? I love the high-waisted shorts over stockings and a leather shearling coat. Her coat looks like something an older man might wear, which just makes it cooler in my opinion.

    I saw the first woman on She's the girl from "5 days, 5 looks, 1 girl". in one of those days she wears the same clothes in your picture. she said the sweater was a present from her mom and in the beginning she didn't like it.:) so, I don't know if it's about rich people here, but it's about people in fashion industry, with studied looks.

  23. Suitorialist

    March 16, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    The contrast of that electric blue under her arm against the dark jacket and light top is just great.

    The second photograph is tops, those boots! Now that's balance!

    I admire women who can carry heels that high on the street during the day.
    good job with the blog

    Love that first outfit! I have the same Dries sandals, and I love how she made it work for Winter.

    I love the first pic, the girl is so self-confident in those clothes. Her outfit is elegant, serious and fanciful at the same time!

    i'm getting heel envy looking at the girl in the platforms. she is fabulous. oh to be short enough to not look like a tranny in 5 inch heels. woe is me.


    March 16, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    This is so Park Ave. I love it.

    I have those Dries Sandals in the first photo. Never before this photo did I think to wear them with tights! Love it.

    I know its chic, but I'm looking forward to the day when women wear pretty shoes again. Those look like Herman Munster boots to me.

    Scott, re:

    "Anon 3:29 How do you know they are rich?"

    Because the woman in the second picture's outfit – Vuitton bag, probable Chanel jacket and Burberry coat and whoever boots in total add up to more than what I pay in rent, and this is just her out and about day look.

    Although, I do come to your blog to be inspired and fantasize. Also, I do understand that your whole deal is about the idea and the look/silhouette, so I'm still down.

    Not sure why, but I could tell these photos were New York again, even before reading the headline. Something rather cold, aggressive and uptight about them……the relaxed charm I saw in the European photos is missing.

    The Europeans made me smile. These New Yorkers make me uncomfortable. Can you go back to Europe soon?

    The first lady was pictured in this outfit in Vogue's feature "5 days, 5 outfits, 1 girl". She is a vogue editor attending fashion week in high end designer clothes. That is why I thought she was rich. Rich or poor, I love the outfit and this blog.

    To Anon earlier.. what is being rich anyway? Someone buys vintage stuff, or get as presents, or save 5y to get a Chanel bag. I myself am not rich at all. I working as a nurse, but I just got a Vuitton Alma bag. I wear shoes worth 500€ on daily basis. BUT I also buy cheap stuff.
    And what is wrong with being rich anyway? Style is style with or without money, you can't buy that.

    I love the composition of the first photo, where subject's ribbed sweater refers back to the columns of the building behind her. The blue of her bag and on the cart in the background also help to create a wonderfully balanced picture.

    I love when there are similarities, yet people don't look identical…
    Nice to see the yellow cabs at the back, too.

    How do you know they are rich? In any case, they are far from boring. I love the skirt with the boyish hair. I wish I had the balls to cut my hair short, but somehow i just can't do it.

    How do girls walk in these platforms? Remember Naomi Campbell's infamous fall wearing shoes similar to second photo during Vivienne Westwood's show? I have a similar pair by Drastik that I love but am very careful in. Oh that's right, I'm a dance student with an ankle formerly sprained from dancing.

    The woman in the first photo reminds me of Anne Hathaway. Because of The Devil Wears Prada, maybe?

    Don't take photos of wealthy people?(Btw, her jacket could be Burberry or H&M with the same likelihood, from a picture you can not tell. It could even be a guys coat.) Don't take photos of New Yorkers? LOL!!!! I got a good laugh from this one. What else should Scott not do?
