The Sexy Tie-Dye

Who knew that Tie-Dye could ever be sexy?
Gone are the Tie-Dye T-shirts of the past that girls used as beach cover-ups and in are Tie-Dye patterns in modern, flirty styles. Take a look at this girl on the streets of Manhattan doing it right! This romper is just enough sexy showing leg, and modest with the bell sleeves. All in all, a perfect outfit for the summer and beach season that kicked off on Memorial Day.

Tell us, don't you just love it? A similar style can be found here at Lord & Taylor for a great price!

Summer's Perfect Backpack

We were idly strolling near Grand Central last week when this casually chic woman walked by with the cutest backpack seen in years! Impossibly adorable and perfectly fitting to wear to the office, we just love the dark apricot color, zipper design, and fold-over functions.
We had to track it down for you, dear reader, and track it down we did!
It is called "The Jetsetter Convertible Backpack" by Henri Bendel that turns into a crossbody and comes with a detachable strap. Plus it is water-resistant, and can be purchased/ordered here.

 The design reminds us a bit of something Kate Spade might have come out with. Fittingly feminine and functional. What can be better than that?

Don't you just LOVE it? TELL US in the comments below! 
Also, we love her pants and how she wore them together with a navy blazer and blue-ish/ navy tote. A perfectly stand-out outfit. Gotta love New York!

The Gold Standard

We couldn't help but snap this lovely girl wearing the loveliest of outfits we've seen out recently.

She is doing everything right and you must agree that this outfit is pure perfection. We especially love that her book matches so wonderfully to her coat and the gold kicks just make you want to run out and get a pair yourself! Fabulous.

When in doubt: go gold!

"Holding on to the Summer" Outfit

This outfit is just perfection: the hand-cut bleached denim shorts (check), the longer sleeved top for those in-between warm and cool days (check), the brown oxford-like shoes with contrasting forest green socks (check and check). An added bonus is the forest green bag that matches the socks. 

This girl has gotten it all right! We also love the long hair in a pony. Plus, she is reading a book! 

Reading is sexy, so pass it on! A+

Tight Skirt, Big Backpack


It looks like we ran into a grown-up Dora the Explorer on the subway.

However, we're pretty sure even Dora would know better than to wear a skirt this tight, especially one this long. It cuts off at a very awkward length. We just cannot find any redeeming qualities to this outfit. Such a big backpack just inches away from a backside covered in super tight cloth, makes our eyes drift to places they just shouldn't drift to. Plus, this skirt will guarantee the wearer to be late all day since it makes for very short and restricted strides. How many trains do you think she missed until she finally got on this one?

 Ladies, don't do this to yourself!

We do like the backpack, though--looks vintage and nice and sturdy.

When It's Easy Being Green

It is usually a fashion DON'T to commit to one color head to toe, unless you deliberately want to look like you are wearing a costume. However, the woman in the photo below (snapped on an NYC train) appears perfectly content, which brings us to the most important rule of fashion and style: WHO CARES what people think, the most important thing is that you feel good about your outfit.
It was honestly very refreshing to see this green on green on green combo and our moods were quite lifted that evening.
 
Sorry dear Kermit, it IS easy being green.

An Otherwise Chic Outfit

Our hearts wept when we spotted this lovely girl wearing a pair of dreadful boots!
Yes, we understand she might have had eight inch stilettos in her purse and although the boots are no doubt comfy, repeat after us:
"I shall never wear camel or brown with black and white."
We love the black and white combo outfit, but Minnetonka boots should be left for the weekend. We do not care if your feet are tired. Respect chic and chic shall respect you right back!
