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.

A beautiful photograph, that smile truly captures the beauty of humankind.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:35 AM) : 

What a lovely smile! The contrast against the greenery and the sunshine and shade is wonderful! Cute dress, enjoy how her sweater is draped, like the sandals and toe nail polish, but not the pockets on her dress.


Blogger Lucy said ... (10:37 AM) : 

great photo =)


Blogger sisty said ... (10:38 AM) :

Wow, I love her!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:47 AM) : 

This woman is beautiful. I don't know what it is about this dress, but I'm not feeling it. However, I love that the last few women have all been in flat sandals and standing very at ease. They just look so uncomplicated and well in their skin.


Blogger norawoah said ... (10:49 AM) : 

Hew Joi de Vive is the best. Everything else is an accessory!

She is gorgeous. I love her very casual, yet very chic style. I LOVE that you're showing more everyday people on the blog now. Kudos.


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:58 AM) : 

I love this long-sleeved, short hemmed, loose fitting dress. And she is just a beautiful woman.

cuteness is painted all over her toenails

i have a dress just like that. for those of us who are a bit curvier than this lovely lady, belting it in makes it instantly wearable.


Anonymous Lauren said ... (11:47 AM) :

Blogger Shaina said ... (11:49 AM) : 

Gorgeous! That dress is perfect for the type of weather we've been having lately. I love when people dress practical, yet stylish. Her smile only makes it that much better.

I'm so happy that you've been out and about in my's one of the most uniquely stylish areas in all of BK. Tons of individual flavor!

PS - It's Lafayette Avenue. Just in case anyone would like to visit....

Every woman should own these birks. They are simple, easy to wear, comfortable, and remarkably chic.


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (3:18 PM) : 

I am loving these Brooklin photos!


Anonymous Jessica said ... (3:21 PM) : 

She looks fantastic! The more of your photos I look at the more I feel like real style has very little to do with the actual clothes and a lot to do with how comfortable the subjects are with themselves - how well the outside matches the inside. As a side note, I love seeing someone look chic in sensible shoes, and I LOVE that you are featuring more "real" looking people lately. The high-fashion looks are fun, but I am enjoying this variety.


Anonymous AnonymousJK said ... (3:28 PM) : 

Hands down she wins best smile of the week!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:52 PM) : 

Wowwww. I love this woman, I really do. Her style is classic but still fashion-conscious. And what a comfortable, natural smile.


Blogger Virginia de la Reynares said ... (4:06 PM) : 

Love. The simply shift with the scarf and sandals is amazing.

Blogger said ... (11:17 PM) : 

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


Blogger Hawa said ... (11:24 PM) : 

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


Blogger Mikey!!! said ... (11:29 PM) : 

She owns this outfit! She has a natural beauty and she is just radiant and glowing. Cutie!

Monsieur, you wear "the good glasses" (as says it a friend philosopher)(and aesthete)... I love your look (forgive my bad english)(please)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:14 AM) : 


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.

I'm liking the "Brooklyn Collection". and that dress!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:30 PM) : 

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.


Blogger nothingness said ... (1:10 PM) :

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.


Blogger triangle eyes said ... (7:48 PM) : 

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.


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:56 PM) : 

Great Pic...but I too wanna see the's all about the bag! LOL


Anonymous comms girls said ... (9:01 PM) : 

I love her dress with the simple black scarf. I think sometimes scarfs try to take the attention but here it is such a compliment

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.
