My fav street style was that of the Asian women we encountered. They traveled in groups where each individual seemed to have her own unique style, yet they blended as a group. They had the distinct look of being on-trend but influenced by sources outside the US, and they were ALL fab. Yes, every. Single. One of them. In close second was a woman we passed on the upper west side: big curly dirty blonde hair, wearing a brown, beige and white waist-length fur, dark wash skinny jeans, Tory Burch flats and shouldering a black quilted bag with chain strap (Chanel?). She totally channeled Carrie Bradshaw for me.
So, off we went to Soho for the amazing street vendors, cool boutiques and some high-end window shopping past the displays of Louis Vuitton, La Perla, and Anna Sui. From one of the street vendors I nabbed a couple of super soft cashmere pashminas for $5 each-one in a heather grey and another in a lemony yellow to help brighten up these sad winter days.
and a pair of cool distressed brown flat boots w/gold zippers. They're total cheapies, but so cool (and not cheap) looking. Since buying them though, the zipper on my right boot has broken, so I'll need to take them to the shoe repair shop. They were so inexpensive though that I'm not surprised and don't mind the couple of extra dollars.
I have been enjoying my spoils. There's no shopping on the east coast like in NYC. Can't wait for my next trip in April!
