On the Street....Tompkins Square Park, New York

The Lower East Side and especially Tompkins Square Park has been on fire lately. Such a great variety of style is blooming in the park right now.

This is Claire. She is wearing a hand-me-down dress from her mother. I love the wispy little summer dresses that are starting to appear but a more tailored, shaped dress like this is sooo flattering. To me this is vintage at its best; it draws inspiration from the past without feeling "costumey."

Tonight you will see a photo of 87 year-old artist KC Rowland; he's like the orignal Prada. Tweed hat, tortoise glasses, snake ring, Cuban shirt and leather sandals with socks. He's a true original.
