On the Street……Lafayette St., Brooklyn

Crap, I didn’t get the shot that shows more of her bag. It was a great grey/black/white buffalo plaid, and I just love the idea of pairing that with a small floral print in the same color scheme.

    The shift dress is wicked cute, and I think the patch pockets make it much more interesting.

    sooo gorgeous! i like that her beautiful skin is what makes the outfit stand out….this outfit wouldn't have suited any other skin tone…it makes it so individual!

    I am so happy you're taking pictures in Brooklyn and in parts of the city not directly outside the Conde Nast building in Midtown!

    It is so nice to see you going back to the images of real street style of ordinary people, that we as readers can relate to and draw attainable inspiration from.

    Of course, I love to look at the pictures you post of high fashion icons and figures in the international scene, but seeing people "like me" in a more organic setting and outfit is a welcome change. :)

    Thank you.

    Sart…this is GREAT…because it is so individual. I just can't look at another pair of gladiator sandals and a trendy summer frock. This woman is beautiful without being on trend. Love it. Thanks for this. Made my day.

    Brooklyn (named after the Dutch town Breukelen) is one of the five boroughs of New York City, located southwest of Queens on the western tip of Long Island.

    effortlessly chic and she seems so comfortable with herself.

    First things first, I think it's incredible that you're branching out into different parts of the city. You always have stunning subjects and lately your photographs have showcased a great sense of diversity in more 'everyday' people, without sacrificing your authenticity and classic eye for style.

    Very very nice. Great smile! The pattern reminds me of an old Hedi Slimane T-shirt print from DH a few years back!

    The photo is great, the style is great, and as a fellow expectant mom, it is inspirational to see someone rockin' the baby bump in such a chic (and understated) way. This is what I aspire to look like for the next few months.
