Michelle….Crossing Houston….SOHO….Manhattan NYC

Caught In The Middle

w Michelle all black sm ol

Will be taking some time off to move to new digs but wanted to leave you with a little something.
This is what we love about Manhattan.  Ran across Michelle getting off the 6 train at Astor Place.
She is always impeccably styled whether dressed up, down or somewhere in the middle
It wasn’t Fashion Week.  She wasn’t getting out of a limo and getting stopped by one bloggerazzi after another.
She just got off the friggin 6 train and was schlepping down to SOHO on Lafayette without any fanfare.
To me that is what street style is all about.  Real people, on the streets, everyday. 
Not just a few weeks during Sept. and Feb. 

We should be back with a few more pics of Michelle right before NYC Fashion Week starts.  In out absence
why not take some time to cruise through the archives at the right of the page and check out some old favs or find some new ones.

Haven’t moved in eleven years this will be hell.

See you soon;
Blade

It’s been an amazing summer in NYC. Not the usual too hot and humid.  Perfect weather for summer fashion.

Interesting Accessory

Looks like the young lady is a bit taken aback by the antics of the rabble

culture shock are leaving the lux land up by the Mid-Town Ferrari store on Park Ave.

Manhattanhenge as we like to call it, is a wonderful time that happens twice a year when the setting Sun aligns precisely
with the Manhattan street grid, creating a radiant glow of light across Manhattan's brick and steel canyons, simultaneously
illuminating both the north and south sides of every cross street of the borough's grid. A rare and beautiful sight.

Just by chance happened to pass Ms.Anna Wintour and her daughter
on Broadway at West 64th St on Sunday.  They turned into the Daniel Boulud’s very popular Bar Boulud,
a casual French bistro located across from Lincoln Center, for what we assume was a Mothers Day Brunch.
Ms. Wintour looking absolutely impeccable as usual.

The New Accessory

w all black gold head phones two tone red hair leopard print sweater ol

Many in The City are changing from ear buds to the over ear head phones.
Are head phones going to be the next new fashion accessory?
Chanel already has the large pearl necklace for this spring that looks like head phones.
Wouldn’t be much of a reach to add sound.
