Today’s submission is breaking all the rules. First, it’s NOT from New York, it’s actually from the streets of New Orleans during the super bowl. I think this was the reason the lights went out–the people sitting next to her complained they could see her business and the Lord intervened! The second rule being broken is that it’s not a photo I took, it was submitted by the beautiful and always vigilant @lostplum who blogs over at LostPlum.com who gives us her take on life, which is always grand and with a twist of sexy darkness.
But hey, if she felt sexy…more power to her.
Want to submit photos you take “on the go” for next Fridays’ edition of New York Train Fashion, e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post with pride!
German + I were on the @ train chatting away this AM (well, I was chatting away, he was tuning me out when it’s this early in the morning) when this adorable brother + sister hop on the train and position themselves in front of us. Not only did they captured us with their bold + colorful outfits–they warmed our heart with their universal conversation.
He was wearing baggy + stylish camouflage pants with high top adidas sneakers while his black wide-rim frames where tucked into his messy locks while she was wearing sassy braids while rock’n her pinks + purples all over Brooklyn.
It was their conversation that won us over.
(Ignore the Asian woman in the back who obviously wanted to get in the photo) Kim Lee, you better wait your turn girl, for your own fashion friday edition.
Little Girl: Eeeeeeeeew!
Big bother: What?
Little Girl: Your breath stinks!
Big brother: Shut up, shut up shut up, don’t talk to me!
Identifying sign: Either an art show or a Sunday mass, Lea looks perfectly fashionable!
You’re likely to bump into her kind: Getting coffee in an art cafe Little Skips in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
Favorite neighborhood: Bushwick
Where she likes to shop for clothes: Lea prefers shopping Upstate New York when she visits her parents there. She goes to church stores and finds cheap awesome clothes that used to be worn by church ladies 30 years ago. She got her shoes in a store in Greenpoin (just around the corner from Enid’s who can remember the name, gets a coffee at Little Skips from me ;-))
Item she never leaves her house without: Either the red purse she’s wearing on the picture or a kid-size blue back pack that says National Autobahn Society. As she’s only 5 feet tall and needs everything to be a little smaller 🙂
Fashion Friday Tip: Dear fashion junkies, I personally am going for the golden shoes! Paired with color tights, they make for a great combination to celebrate spring, hopefully coming soon to our beloved NYC!
