Sidewalk Style – Week 40 With Sohee

Sep, 27th, 2015

Sohee met a friend earlier and was on her way home. I asked about her outfit and she said she was inspired by a photo of a friend wearing a leather jacket. Her outfit made her feel powerful, sexy and confident. When I asked about her wardrobe she said it mainly consists of navy blue, grey and black colors. She said they are easy to match and she likes the slimming effect of dark colors.

Jacket: bought in NYC
Blouse: H&M

Sidewalk Style – Week 35 With Mai

Aug, 29th, 2014

In the US, cut-off blue jeans and a red & white checkered blouse (tied at the waist) evokes a romantic notion of the farmer’s daughter. If you’ve seen Jessica Simpson in the 2005 “Dukes of Hazard” movie then you’ll understand my point. When Mai walked by I was subconsciously drawn to her. Yes, her blouse has a conservative style but as we began to talk I liked two details about her outfit. First was her choice of a fourth color. Wearing multiple colors can be tricky but the pale pink complemented her red & white blouse. Secondly, the same color was found in her purse, heels, cell phone case and fingernails! Even more impressive was how each piece came from a different store! I loved how each understated detail slowly revealed itself. Incidentally, Mai will start attending science classes at university this semester. She’s seen here with her friend Ayame.

Sidewalk Style – Week 36 with Sam

Sep, 1st, 2013

“Fringe with Benefits!” I loved the way Sam’s skirt danced and swayed with each step. We met as she was heading to work. Her skirt was a gift from a friend. She thinks it came from Asia. I asked what inspired her outfit and she said she wanted a light feminine feel that looked nice and polished. When shopping she looks for items with details that stand out like bold colors, clean lines or interesting cuts. The fringe definitely puts a new spin on typical maxi skirt.

Yes, I know… Gizzelle’s outfit is quite casual/sexy for Sidewalk Runway.
Gizzelle is quite striking and I remember seeing her at last year’s festival. This time I said hello. She has a charming English accent from London. I also learned she works in a laboratory, wears a lab coat and spends her day looking for cures.

Sidewalk Style – Week 30 with Emma

Strawberry Smiles is the title that came to mind when I was creating this post. Emma’s a strawberry blonde and we met one morning on the way to work. She was waiting for her bus so I literally had a couple minutes to capture these photos.

Sidewalk Style – Week 23 with Yeting

Jun, 4th, 2013

Yeting’s brightly colored outfit caught my attention. She purchased it from a small boutique in China. I liked how her Aldo platform wedge heels matched the colors of her blue belt and orange Hermes bracelet. Just as we started chatting, three of her friends arrived. I had to work fast to capture four basic shots. She mentioned she’ll be moving to LA to enroll in a fashion design school. Naturally, I asked what designers/fashion houses inspire her. She mentioned Vera Wang, Burberry and Chanel.
