On the street: NYC

I have been very, very busy this weekend, so I haven’t had a chance to update on Fashion Week. Running in Race for the Cure took a lot out of me, but I was able to beat my goal and ran it in 30 mins. Yay! I will be posting my favorite looks from the New York runways this week.

The Sartorialist caught this lovely girl in NYC with the perfect walk, perfect look.

Size, in society’s terms


The Sartorialist posted about this image from Glamour’s September issue over the weekend. A very interesting discussion formed in the comments section about women’s perceptions of themselves and how society looks at them based on the appearance of most models—famished. If you have a shred of interest in this topic you should head over to his blog to throw in your two cents.

Inspirations


The Globe had a very interesting Q&A with Scott Schuman, a street-style blogger, better known as the Sartorialist. He brings to the table a fresh perspective on fashion. The idea behind the blog is that people are inspired by what other people are wearing day-to-day, not by fashion labels. I couldn’t agree more. I have my fair share of fashion icons and I love to look at the pretty dresses and outfits every season, but it is hard to be inspired by an expensive outfit that I will never be able to buy. I am much more inspired by everyday people who achieve a flawless look, but then you find out they are wearing a hand-me-down or something they found at a thrift store. That is much more interesting.
