like the bike :)


Blogger Jacqueline said ... (1:37 PM) : 

LOVE the bike!


Blogger Alex Folzi said ... (1:46 PM) : 

nice color of bag


Anonymous Kevina said ... (1:54 PM) : 

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.

Irish gir? uh uh uh!



Anonymous Marta said ... (2:04 PM) : 

The shade of red of the bike is really nice! The look a bit too négligé...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:07 PM) : 

I have the same bike!


Anonymous Elaine said ... (2:13 PM) : 

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.


Blogger Thays M. said ... (2:23 PM) : 

I really don't like.


Anonymous xris said ... (2:23 PM) : 

nice cars.


Blogger Emma Gordon said ... (2:25 PM) : 

she'd look cuter in a helmet.


Blogger Elena said ... (2:29 PM) : 

The sock garters are such a great touch.


Blogger Marta Represa said ... (2:39 PM) : 



Blogger Deborah said ... (2:40 PM) : 

The socks!!!...


Blogger Antonio Barros said ... (2:41 PM) : 

What is she using in her socks?!


Blogger chicfeed said ... (2:47 PM) : 

first reaction: mixed.
thoughtful reaction: love the backpack and color choice here!


Anonymous Darcy H said ... (2:48 PM) : 

She's dressing in the way that flatters who she is. I like the stripes. Well done.


Blogger krisnn said ... (2:48 PM) : 

is it not very cold in nyc right now? it's already november!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:55 PM) : 

i like the bookbag! very festive!

F --> two girls living in nyc and chicago blogging all things fashion!


Blogger Me said ... (3:05 PM) : 

and she is wearing leg warmers over her boots, held up by those ancient sock holders that men wore when? in the 50s?

super inventive, and I love the splash of color of the yellow stripe and the bag!


Blogger Sammy said ... (3:11 PM) : 

Gotta have the shorts.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:34 PM) : 

The stays on her socks are so from another time. I think if she lived back then, her bicycle would be a horse and she would be a ranger or something.


Blogger An Eccentric Conforming Nonconformist said ... (3:38 PM) : 

what do i have to do to get on this blog? i live in bk heights... please come here <3


Blogger Andrew said ... (3:39 PM) : 

Oh wow. She looks like she leads a great life. Amazing socks.


Blogger foongfest said ... (3:56 PM) : 

A little "out there" but I dig it. It appears to me she's not trying to be someone she's not and is comfortable with who she is.
That's to me, is a large part of what great style's about.


Blogger Petey said ... (4:04 PM) : 

Myah. A bit too scout leader for my taste.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:16 PM) : 

As Gary Fisher would have said for everyone who is on a bike: '' she is on the right place!''


Anonymous joost said ... (4:18 PM) : 

She's a hero. You can see that right away.

Beautiful portrait Sart. Thanks!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:23 PM) : 

Other than the garters, I'm not sure what makes this special.

BTW, Kevina, that's no fixie. Maybe that's what's refreshing about it.


Anonymous Lelu said ... (4:53 PM) : 

it's not the first picture i'd associate with a great sense of style. but she does look cool, in a way.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:11 PM) : 

Very sure of herself and her own style--I love that. I couldn't pull off this look myself, but I *love* it on her!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:25 PM) : 

I love the yellow stripe on backpack, yellow stripe on pants, and garters mimicking white stripe on BP. The look is very cool!


Blogger jamesylala said ... (5:30 PM) : 

Scott, Thank you Thank you Thank'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 chic. grin


Blogger TheLibrarian said ... (5:45 PM) : 

Sock garter/socks/boots = Prada wellingtons. Band leader cut offs = tuxedo shorts.

It's not what is actual, but what can be referenced.

Nice portrait, also.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:47 PM) : 

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.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:03 PM) : 

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.


Blogger The Girl in the Dirty Shirt said ... (6:10 PM) : 

this is awesome! i'm usually partial to your super high fashion and street wear shots, but this is a neat take on a theme and a great representation of style that's refreshingly unique.


Anonymous Rene Schaller said ... (6:20 PM) : 

ÜBEL.... what's that? why? no one want's to see something like this!


Blogger Hannah said ... (6:21 PM) : 

LOVE IT! Only in New York...

White Lightning Design Blog beautiful things, material things...


Anonymous James said ... (6:27 PM) : 

This handsome butch has a spectacular sense of style. I love how the line on her shorts is continued by the garters and up through her bag.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:32 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:18 PM) : 

I really like this shot too--her hair, her garters and socks and her fearless expression are wonderful.


Anonymous Alyxmyself said ... (8:02 PM) : 

wow. as a woman who loves women, you rarly see this much fashion bravery from the bois. very, very titillating. mmmm.
also adorable and chic. sorry, had to clear my head there :)


Blogger Jonathan said ... (8:02 PM) : 

Right on. Style is about knowing what you're doing with your clothes, and she knows what she's doing. I'd love to see what she wore the day after, or what she wears when she's not on her bike.


Blogger gustavo said ... (8:44 PM) : 

Where can I find sock garters like those?
Really, I have been looking for them for such
a long time! Seriously!


Anonymous stefica said ... (9:10 PM) : 

Excellent example of true street fashion!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:51 PM) : 

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?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:28 AM) : 

I love a vintage schwinn! and I love the look, she's not just another anorexic hanger trying too hard. This is Grand!


Blogger Erin said ... (12:32 AM) : 

absolutely killer. lumberjack meets jack kerouac meets amelia earhart.


Blogger Erin said ... (12:36 AM) : 

and I must disagree with Rene Schaller's comment above...I think plenty of people want to see something like this. myself included.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:22 AM) : 

great posture! she looks like she lives in a very interesting world.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:30 AM) : 

Nice retro racer there


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:31 AM) : 

here's one for the ladies?


Blogger pixie said ... (8:13 AM) : 

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.


Blogger ingefaer said ... (9:05 AM) : 

Rene Schaller......speak for yourself!
Not my favorite but I like her spunk and it takes all kinds as the saying goes


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:19 AM) : 

My first reaction was, not my style. But on reflection, I see a sartorial lesson for us all: Be true to yourself.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:23 AM) : 

FANTASTIC!! i love the backpack! this is truly original style


Blogger rhai♥laborte said ... (9:31 AM) : 

Love the outfit, it's appropriate with the bike.



Anonymous Excelens said ... (2:30 PM) : 

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!


Blogger Nadine said ... (3:29 PM) : 

Just so good! Love the fact that the socks are legwarmers! Awesomeness overload . .


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:20 PM) : 

she's self-assured and sexy. love it.


Blogger c. said ... (6:27 PM) : 

Good job.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:31 PM) : 

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...


Blogger Bryce said ... (2:26 AM) : 

Exactly what Anonymous (6:31 PM) said. An actual person I can imagine meeting.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:41 AM) : 

The half smile is adorable.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:01 PM) : 



Blogger Argenteum said ... (2:22 PM) : 

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.


Blogger Bubu said ... (6:02 PM) : 

i love the bici in the city


Blogger margaretmarks said ... (6:19 PM) : 

Doesn't give any warm fuzzies or oooh moments, but interesting.


Blogger Percy B said ... (11:23 AM) : 

No, sorry. Just strikes me as trying too hard, esp the exposed sock garters.


Blogger eff said ... (11:33 PM) : 

I have been looking EVERYWHERE for one this good.

Sorry Bertie, looks like Jeeves forgot to lay out your trousers.


Anonymous Birdie said ... (8:38 PM) : 

Great garters and striped socks. Love the short's side stripes, and the delightful whippersnapper attitude.


Blogger Cameron said ... (10:14 AM) : 

Great style may be surprising and subversive sometimes, but is always original. Good eye!


Blogger Old Housecoat said ... (2:45 PM) : 

i know Im super late on this one, but I've been away.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:13 AM) : 

I usually don't use the "c" word--you know, "cute"--but there is something just flat-out cute about this look (and her smile), and it plays off the tough & cool vibe wonderfully. :)


Anonymous angel said ... (7:00 PM) : 

this is true style...i am inspired by the practicality and the form. she is sexy.


Blogger Hard Luck Hero said ... (8:43 PM) : 

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!


Blogger elephantom said ... (10:45 AM) : 

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.
