NYC-Streetwear Du Jour, 5 May 2011


When I was younger, people use to dress up at shows.  I remember getting my wedge on, my charity shop skirt and blouse, and that vintage hand bag that I got at a not-so-vintage price.  Hooray for the Salvation Army!  Nowadays, people don’t seem to make that effort.  Well, sometimes you get lucky.

Last night, Rolling Stone, Starbucks, and Garnier Fructis held a private event at the Highline Ballroom over on the west side of Manhattan with show headliners Cali-boys Cold War Kids, along with Brooklyn’s Beast Make Bomb, and We Barbarians.  The show was great and this time I got a few really great outfits.  Dresses!!!!

What a cute dress, so flowy and delicate.

Love how she mixed the feminine, delicateness of the dress with a funky black vest.

Great dress and loving the yellow sweater.  Check out the hot heels too!

Such a cute dress and love the elastic belt.

There was one lady in a long, white satiny dress and a black jacket.  I so wish I had gotten her photo.  It was an amazing outfit.

I’m hopeful that people will start making the effort to dress up again at shows.  Skinny jeans be gone!
