a photo mosaic: new york


chic women + mz wallace bags = awesome street style 

 i spent the better half of last week in new york, shuffling between meetings on the subway. it's fairly easy to tell what people are wearing after a ten-minute subway ride, so i made a little list of the things that seem to be trending:

  • knee-length (or ankle-length, for the snowsuit lover) puffy coats -- the north face & the more luxurious moncler are the brands to sport. 
  • boots of all varieties. like the ones we sell here. exactly, in fact, like the ones on our shelves!
  • tights -- black, opaque, sheer, textured, patterned, purple. you should be wearing a pair right now.
  • seasonal confusion. like charlottesville's unpredictable weatherscape, new york is suffering from a prolonged winter as well. 
  • dog sweaters.

i tried to discreetly take photographs of women carrying mz wallace bags (they are everywhere), but my pictures turned out blurry. mz wallace’s lovely website, however, has a street style page, where they’ve posted much more beautiful photos of the backs of women toting their mz wallace purses. i’ve gathered my favorites, and they’re shown above.

below, you can see a few pictures i took of the trip. please note how on-trend i am on the brooklyn bridge with my knee-length north face coat.
