How adorable! I love that you picked up the style of the sock garters, the exciting colors, her fixie, and fantastically daring mohawk (as a girl who used to have one, I can definitely say they're not easy to wear without undue nastiness from passersby). Although it's certainly not your "typical" photo, it just goes to show that style is a personal and readily identifiable thing, even in unusual instances.
Another androgynous look… This is a wonderful photograph, captured her expression, love that her left foot is on the pedal, like the red color of her bike and the red cars to her left, of course her bag is great, and the yellow stripe on her pants. How the building fades out on the left and the street signs and purple building on her right frame her nicely, as well as the white paint on the street.
Scott, Thank you Thank you Thank you….it's photographs like this beauty that keep me filled with inspiration! I love it real, I love it from the street, and I love the real personal direction. Perfection!!!! God, I love sock suspenders…so chic. grin James
love it! love that she is truly doing her own style and not what is in fashion or trendy, love that it actually has a purpose and love that her outfit is inspired by her amazing bag. I'm sure people that don't like ando or masculine women will hate it but what are they so afraid of? she looks great and unique without being a hipster or fashion follower.
Her name is Chloe. She is a seamstress among other things. She made that back pack…she bikes everywhere because she thinks the MTA is a rip off. She carves and makes her own violins and can be seen busking for change in time square.
this is real style, because it's about who she is and not what labels she buys. i agree with anonymous above — what are commenters scared of when an androgynous woman doesn't fit a fashion-world concept of androgyny?
She has her own style and I love that. It looks effortless and a lot of the fashion I see here does not, it looks like they spent days figuring out what to wear. I love that about this look, she is true to herself.
A fantastic image! Her stance evokes utter confidence in who she is and channels a real sense of being visible and solid. certainly one for the girls! Love the facial expression! and those colours … oh my!
Fantastic photo of her stripy detail, her hair, and handsome, wicked grin. THANK YOU for a photo of someone who actually looks like a real passerby and not a high fashion giraffe caught smoking between shows…
She has an awesome sense of style and pulls of the androgynous/queer look perfectly. Reading the comments from those that know her make her sound a really interesting person too. Seamstress & violin maker? Brilliant!
Not too sure about the sock garters – I've always thought they're a little daft.
I love the yellow stripes! I wonder if they're something she's drawn to, aesthetically, and end up creeping into every thing she wears. The sock garters are so awesome, and the way she's wearing the leg warmers (or cut off socks?) over the top of her boots is so weird and beautiful! Just doing what feels right is such a liberating way to get dressed!
I've been reading this blog from the most current posts backward, and this seems like the first photo of a younger person with some body fat. Please show more people with real bodies! Also, love this look.
