Every August, we get ultra-excited about the AfroPunk Festival, which takes place in Brooklyn, N.Y.C. The festival is a two-day celebration of music, fashion, art and culture. Aside from being packed with eye-popping musical performances and insanely good vibes, it's *also* a convergence of some of the most beautiful, stylish folks on the planet. We swear you won't find a better crowd for people-watching anywhere in the world.
This year's fest was full ... Read More
What with the street style bloggers crawling over every corner of the Internet, it seems as though the next-level creeping was bound to happen eventually.
This latest incarnation of style stalking is through a camera linked to the Internet, uploading shots of passerby in real time from, naturally, Brooklyn, New York. The camera snapping shots of passers-by is located along Williamsburg’s Bedford Avenue, and is motion activated, so anyone and everyone walking ... Read More
During sweaty-and-disgusting New York summers, all I want to wear is a bathing suit and flip flops. But these ladies, photographed in Rockefeller Center in 1944, offer up a viable and glamorous alternative. Photographed by Alfred Eisenstaedt (who shot that picture of a sailor dipping his dame for a kiss in Times Square on V-J Day) for LIFE magazine, this series entitled “Beautiful Girls in New York” is a killer documentation of vintage NYC street ...

One of my favorite Fashion Week events had to be Lulu's Style Studio, where bloggers from all over gathered to mingle, shop, and eat cupcakes in style. It was an ultra-stylish party, and I was able to snap shots of some of my favorite looks as everyone walked ... Read More
There's so many street style blogs out there, it's hard to know which ones are best so when I find a really good one, I definitely try and keep up with it. TheSFStyle.com is one of my favorites. Run by JT Tran and Dyanna Dawson, the site is filled with lovely lady and handsome man "morsels" galore from two of my favorite cities, San Francisco and New York! I run a street style blog of my own, The Rebel Waltz, but I've definitely neglected it in ... Read More
I didn't make it to as many CMJ shows as I would've liked, but I was able to catch the lovely singer Emmy the Great, who I've wanted to see for a while now, and Wild Moccasins, a Texas pop band I've missed seeing since moving from Texas to NYC. The two pictures above and below are Emmy the Great, who I was happy brought some glitter and sparkle to a daytime show. It's never too early in my book. I was also totally digging her patterned ...

Laurie covered the event in this previous entry of the Advanced Style party hosted by Ari Seth Cohen and Style Rookie's Tavi Gevinson, but I thought I might share some of the amazing street style I was able to cover while we were there. It was pretty fantastic how people of all ages came together to celebrate style..in style! Everyone there looked fantastic dressed to the nines and it was one Fashion Week event I wont be forgetting any time soon.

Thanks to FRUiTS, the world can keep up with what the ladies of Harajuku, Tokyo are strutting in on a daily basis. The monthly street style magazine has been snapping shots since the mid 90s, and the August issue is filled with the usual volume of fresh and fearless fashion. These girls will wear whatever they want, whenever they want, and they don't mind if you do a double-take or two. Here are some of the looks featured in the current issue:
Yo Nicki, this is ... Read More
If you're anything like me, you understand how amazing animals are. My dog is like my child, I watch that video of the french bulldog that can't roll over on YouTube a little too much when I'm feeling blue, and I am always scouring the interweb for all things related to adorable animals. That being said, you can imagine my sheer delight when i discovered The Catorialist, yeah, that's right, a style blog about CATS. Mimicking the ultimate in serious ... Read More
From vendors to attendees, the BUST Craftacular crowd was indeed a stylish bunch. My head was turning every which way from fancy jewelry and vintage clothes to vegan treats and cupcakes galore, but once I looked away from the goodies, I noticed style everywhere! It was a gorgeous, sunny day and that brought tons of gals with bright, colorful dresses and cute, interesting accessories. I hope all you fancy kids out there had a blast, I know I sure did!
