NYFW Part II - Street Style

Thursday, February 14, 2013

I recently had an epiphany as I strolled around outside and inside the tents at Lincoln Center during NYFW. What I now do with fashion on my blog and Facebook...searching for and finding those rare divine and refined looks amongst a sea of sometimes tacky and mediocre fashion...is a metaphor for how I choose to live my life and view the world.

I realized that anyone can put on a crazy hat or a really short dress. But putting together a look that's unique and yet still modest takes lots of thought and courage. And those are the looks I get excited about seeing, photographing, and sharing with you.

We live in world full of mediocrity, and as humans we tend to focus on negativity. But why not seek out and focus on the rare gems that are right before your eyes?? Snap that (mental) photo and savour the specialness of it.

I've often told people that I like to live my life with a negativity filter. Negativity in any form is toxic to our bodies and souls. Sure it's all around us, but after looking beyond it enough times, all of the beauty will clearly come into focus.

Here are some of the fun street styles I found and captured during my time at NYFW:

Notice how all of these looks are colorful and creative. The outfits express the individuality of the person wearing them...not their bodies. This is the essence of modesty in fashion. It's not about dowdiness, but rather a celebration of the beauty of the person within.

Here's to a vibrant day of celebration and joy!

  3. These are very fun and bright! It is great to see that NYC ppl dont only wear black (((: great pics!

  4. I love that third one up from the bottom, that is a wonderful outfit, so colourful and gorgeous. I think we do tend to focus on negative things. I personally can't stand the negativity. People say my positivity just ins't living in the real world. It's not that I feel there aren't bad things in the world that need my attention, because there is, but I like to keep a positive outlook on it all, that with hard with it could get better. Being positive is so much better on the body, when people bring negativity into my life, I end up feeling terrible. So, it's better to keep away from it. Loved all their outfits, so great. I hope you have a wonderful weekend xx
