Winter Layers

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Debra Rapoport took me step by step through her process of winter layering. Most of what she is wearing was either thrifted, gifted, or re-purposed, like the hat she made out of a recycled wool sweater. Check out the photos above to see Debra in action and if you have any questions for her feel free to reach out at debrathenutritionista@gmail.com .

What Are Your Winter Style Secrets?

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

We have had a pretty cold start to winter in New York City and it's been a bit to difficult to find style inspiration in a sea of black and brown puffy coats. My friend Maureen braved the cold, puffy coat aside, to come visit me and show me her brand new pink do. After I snapped a quick portrait of her she got back into her coat and headed for the nearest cafe. Maureen's gorgeous scarf and statement glasses are the perfect accessories to add some color and fun to her sensible winter coat. What are your winter style secrets?

A Signature Look

Thursday, January 23, 2014

All Eyewear by l.a. Eyeworks
When I'm out on the street looking for people to photograph I am often drawn to men and women who have a signature look. Most of the ladies and gentleman who appear on this blog eschew the latest trends in favor of their own distinct personal style. Gai Gherardi, co-founder and designer of l.a Eyeworks, is a perfect example of someone dresses in a style all her own. She chooses the fabrics  for all of her stunning pant suits and always looks wonderfully creative and unique. Have you found your signature look yet?

A Streak of White

Maryann is one of the most creative dressers I know. I love the way she mixes different textures and fabrics, and adds her own handmade embellishments to create a style that is both on trend and truly unique. Maryann describes the act of dressing up as, "A creative process that brings me closer to my “Self”. It doesn’t really occur to me that people would have a hard time with this; it’s a natural part of my day. My husband asked me recently “What would you call that look?”, and I answered, “It’s just me!”
Here are some of my favorite of Maryann's looks. Which do you like the best?!!!
