When walking down the streets of New York City it is inevitable that something will catch one’s eye. From street performers, paintings on the side of buildings and “The Human Tin Man”, there is always something for your eyes to take in. Although some may argue that the NYC skyline is enough to make a person stand in awe, I would have to raise my hand to object. There is only one sight that has the ability to excite, inspire and get the creative juices flowing inside of me. That, my friends is the fashion show that tears up the streets of this amazing city with the models being ordinary people from different walks of life.
This weekend I took a stroll through Soho to do a little style watching to see which of the models of the Soho Fashion Show would catch my eye. Just as expected, they did not disappoint in bringing it in the style department. What was unexpected was that my eyes were focused on the details of each persons outfit rather than the entire outfit itself. From metallic oxfords to red top hats, they were all like diamonds reflecting in the sun, and it drew me in like a kid reaching for candy!
Lets get into this week’s style eye candy to see who’s outfit details are Chrissy Joy approved!
Kate Erickson’s silver metallic loafers paired with her crisp white flowy trousers stopped me in my tracks. Although I am all about gold when it come to metallic but this pairing was perfect and definitely put to rest every “no white after labor day” myth. Yes!!
Alessandra Santiago from Brazil nailed it with the details of her leather + fur outfit by finishing off her look with layered rings, a black and gold timepiece and a gorgeous bright red Hermes crossbody bag. I love the mixing of the metals!
Everything about Kevin Kedroe’s look is spot on! As if the pairing of his denim shirt, light khaki pants, and brown double-breasted jacket wasn’t enough. He added in a playful element with his fringed infinity scarf, but still kept it dapper with the popping of his collar. This a perfect example of an elevated menswear casual look. *Thumbs up!*
Suzanne’s boots caught my eye from a mile away ( I love a good black and gold bootie!). But as I got closer to the laced up shoegasm and took in the details, im almost positive that my heart skipped a beat. From the zipper detailing along the front and back, to the cute top buckle, I knew that “Chrissy Joy” was written all over those booties. I also like that she paired them with leggings and knee-high studded socks to stay true to her edgy style.
Jet’s cute little red brim hat in particular caught my eye. I have heard the phrase “Uggh, I love that hat, but I could never rock a cute hat like that because I have short natural hair” come out of the mouth’s of a few of my girlfriends recently when referring to ladies with longer hair wearing stylish hats. Well Jet, my friends, has put this lie to rest with her cute peppered blonde curls tucked underneath this red brim hat. What caught my eye the most about this detailing, is the fact that she was wearing a layered androgynous outfit (baggy pants included), but still kept it lady-like with her details including her red brim hat, pearl stud earrings, and classic red lip (which we all know I love 🙂 ).
French fashion photographer, Julien Boudet of Bleu Mode was actually in the middle of a photo shoot when his killer lace up sandals stopped me in my tracks. From the tennis shoe lace up detailing, mixed with the cross buckle in high top form. It definitely gave me gladiator sandals meets high top sneakers. He finished this look with a pair of black socks and black harem pants, very urban-hipster. Love it!
Well folks, that’s it for this weeks round up of “Chrissy Joy Approved” street style. Stay tuned in to see who catches my eye next, will it be you??
