Chaya - President and Albany

Chaya teaches in a school that requires a staff shirt to be worn. What I liked was how the scarf she chose has exactly the same shade of maroon as her shirt. The blazer and scarf add a jauntiness to what could otherwise be just your average ready-to-be-destroyed-by-innocent-five-year-olds teacher's uniform.

Kayla - Carroll and Kingston

I stopped Kayla on the street - the first person in Crown Heights I've photographed that hasn't been one of my friends. The bold colors of her sweater, combined with the beautiful soft blue of her scarf caught my eye. Her red flats are the perfect accessory. This is a great spring outfit - clean lines and bright colors.

Artist - Union Square NYC

Union Square on a Sunday is a great place to spot people. Artists express their creativity in their clothing, as well. With this woman, I loved the layers she had - t-shirt, sweatshirt, jacket, and that magnificent scarf. The bright color of the t-shirt lightened up what might otherwise have been a somber selection. And the jauntiness of the belt, cinched low at the waist, pulls the silhouette together.
Take a closer look at her dreadlocks, and her fantastic bamboo earrings:

Danielle and Candice - Union between Albany and Kingston

Danielle and Candice are the new girls on the block. They are also the first people I photographed for this blog. I love the femininity of Danielle's purple velvet dress combined with the sturdy, almost piratelike, look of her boots. And Candice has worked magic with her rose-red theme - down the the tips of her shoes and the top of her head. And her bag is awesome!

"Pirate boots and vintage peep toes."

Chaya - Kingston Avenue between President and Carroll

Chaya is a friend of mine who epitomizes a casual, yet classy look. There's always color in whatever she is wearing, which I love, especially on these beautiful spring days.

"Yellow Shoes"

"Geometrical Earrings"
