Seen Style: New York City

From ModCloth Writing Team Intern, Amy Cockcroft:

Picture this: a boiling hot day in August wandering around Washington Square Park, enjoying the beauty of the city of New York and feeling overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle that is like no other. A weekend trip to the Big Apple was just what I needed to inspire me- the sights, the diversity and of course, the style. I’d only been in the city for an hour when I spotted this girl across a fountain and was immediately drawn to her look, one that screamed chic and stylish. She was seemingly unfazed by the heat of the sun that was making everyone else look pretty uncomfortable. Instead, Emma Vintäng combined a black tank under a gorgeous white summer dress, super sharp sunglasses, a quirky key on a long chain and black booties that many wouldn’t dare to don until the colder months. She, however, pulled the look off perfectly. I was green-eyed and jealous as I made my way over to talk to her, only to discover that she herself was a fashion buyer for www.grandpa.se in Stockholm, Sweden! This is a really cool site to check out, and I’d say that they definitely have the right people on the job for supplying gorgeous and modern clothing. Isn’t her ensemble just sublime?!

About Richard

Richard finds style inspiration in an assortment of historical figures, musicians, and movie characters, including Doc Holliday, Tracy Pew, Han Solo, and El Topo. When not tapping at the computer keyboard for ModCloth, Richard spends his time playing music and dreaming of composing the perfect soundtrack to an epic gothic western film set on a distant, dusty planet, where the cowboys ride rocket-powered motorcycles instead of horses.

    Oh, to be Swedish enough to pull off that look…

    Is it just me, or does she–not just the blonde hair and amazing body, but the whole outfit and everything–look… just… quintessentially Swedish? If you’d made me guess her country of origin, I would have totally guessed right. Ugh. Envy.

    I’m just a dowdy 1/4 Norwegian. :P

    I may be too old-fashioned, but I’ve never quite gotten why anyone would want to wear boots in summer.

    I’m not really into the Little Orphan Annie ragamuffin look. Guess that’s just me.

    I agree with Jen–as a New Yorker I see more inspiring fashion on my way to work every morning. Not only am I quite unimpressed by this ensemble, but also that it was deemed suitable to be featured on modlife. Hopefully Amy is spending some extra time in New York and will get a better sense of everything there is to offer in terms of street fashion!
