It’s that time of year again when I feel utterly depressed for my lack of not living in New York. This happens quite often but even more so two times a year. Of course we all know I’m talking about New York Fashion Week. Oddly enough, I’m not super interested in going to any runway shows. I’m more interested in walking the streets of New York and envying all of the glorious style there. Street style has always been a favorite of mine because it requires so much creativity! I follow street style blogs like children follow ice cream trucks, but in the end they get ice cream and I am left with a deeper void in my closet.
Dressing for NYFW is less about looking good and more about standing out in the crowd. Pattern mixing is key and, as you may know, Lime Ricki loves
mixing patterns. So, while I browse through all of the Fall 2013 collections, what I’m really doing is dreaming of how this piece will be paired with that piece from another collection and mixed with some thrift store finds and made into such an exquisite outfit on the streets of New York that The Sartorialist
will be speechless and he’ll capture a candid moment of the outfitted woman and blast it on his blog giving me heart palpitations, like some outfits do, which will cause me to write a terribly long run-on sentence because street style is nothing if not worthy of a good run-on sentence.
